AVL Vs SHf Dream11 Prediction: Sheffield United look to keep their unabated surge towards European football intact.
Before Coronavirus wrecked everything and brought the Premier League to a thudding halt, Sheffield United were the talk of the town in the marquee league. Only promoted this season, the side was on a rampant march in the points tally, a side which defensive acumen, resilliance and resolve had taken everyone aback.
Setting the league alight with their fortitude and grit, Sheffield United had become a real force to reckon with this season. The side’s last encounter saw them record a clinical 1-0 win over Norwich City, the side’s fourth successive unbeaten encounter which took them all the way to 7th in the points tally.
Now as the league returns and the side takes to the field one again, all eyes will be glued on whether Sheffield United have managed to retain their compact and sound defensive unit. Luckily, the side has been handed over a relatively easy tie, one where they are widely touted to record a second straight win when they come across 19th placed Aston Villa.
Doled out a thumping 4-0 defeat right before the league was stalled due to the pandemic, Aston Villa found themselves further sinking towards relegation this season. The side has made for an appalling unit, a team currently engulfed in a four match successive losing spree.
And up infront of one of the league’s biggest success stories, this will be a straightforward defeat for the home side with Sheffield United making for way too superior an opposition.

Nyland from Aston Villa will be inducted into our side as the goal-keeper for the impending tie. The shot stopper has failed to compensate for the injured Heaton but he’s someone capable of accruing a good amount of saves and given his side’s lax defence, he should be able to rope in a solid slew of save points.
The league’s most sublime defence after Liverpool, Sheffield United have been serenaded with plaudits for the kind of defensive brand of football they have deployed this seaon. Endowed with some worldclass defenders, the side has emerged as a menacing contingent, an illustrious backline that has given away a frugal 25 goals.
And a major reason in the side’s stern and stringent defence has been down to the 3-5-2 formation they have deployed. It’s not only resulted in the side forming for a well versed backline but also provided attacking impetuous to the side with wingback George Baldock having piled on the three assists.
He’s partnered by counterpart Enda Stevens with the gritty and gusty Jack O’Connell and Chris Bashan partnering him up for the outing.
Despite John Lundstram going out of favour in the side’s playing 11, the player is going to go nowhere for us today. His value for the side this season has been undoutable with the 4 goal CDM playing a quissential role in both the attacking and defensive dockets of the side’s gameplan.
The team’s top scorer this season with the 5 goals in his kitty, John Fleck joins him up with Sheffield United set to pile on the goals against a side that has shipped in the most numbers of goals at 56 this season. Elsewhere, the opposition’s top scorer with the 7 goals and 6 assists, Grealish makes an advent into our side along with the enterprising John McGinn.
The one player apiece for us from either side with us beginning with the selection of Oliver McBurnie from Sheffield United given his ability to scour past defences and forage their way towards the goals. The other side will meanwhile see Anwar make a foray into our Dream 11 side owing to the 4 goals and 4 assists he has.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His three assists this season will see us make Baldock our captain for the day while Fleck is the vice-captain.
