Aston Villa (LLLLL) and Sheffield United (WWDWW) will meet on Tuesday, June 17th for an English Premier League match at Villa Park. The match is scheduled for a 1:00 PM EST start time. 

English Premier League soccer/football is finally back, and man have we missed it! Aston Villa and Sheffield United will meet for the first time since December of 2019 in what should be an interesting match to watch. 

Before the break, Aston Villa went on a downward spiral, losing their last five matches all in a row. Four of those five matches were in English Premier League play, so it considerably hurts their spot in the current table. As of now, Aston Villa is facing the very real possibility of relegation, as they sit at 19th in the table (only ahead of Norwich City). Aston Villa is still only two points behind the safety zone spot of 17th place (currently held by Watford), so there is still some hope for the football club. A win or draw in this match against Sheffield is crucial for them to find momentum early and fight there way out of a relegation spot.

Sheffield United was firing on all cylinders before the break, therefore this pause in the action certainly hurts them a bit regarding momentum and rhythm. Sheffield United has won four of their last five and has earned a point in all five matches. Three of their last four victories have been in the EPL, which has helped them boost up to 7th in the English Premier League standings. A win for Sheffield United in this match, and they will move ahead of both Wolves and Manchester United in the table. 

In the last match these two teams played against each other, Sheffield United was victorious by the final score of 2-0. John Fleck scored both goals for Sheffield in the win (50', 73'). The last win for Aston Villa over Sheffield United was on January 30th, 2018, which was over two years ago. 

I think we are being given Sheffield United at a very cheap spot in this matchup. Sheffield has consistently been the better team this season, and although they may take a little while to get back into the rhythm they were in, I cannot pass them up in this spot. I will take Sheffield United -0.5 at -105 odds, as I believe it is the side with the most value.
