Aston Villa can move to the top of the Premier League table with a win over struggling Sheffield United on Friday night.

Villa have a perfect eight-from-eight winning home record so far this season and they should have few problems making it nine against a Blades outfit who have the worst away form in the top-flight.

United have picked up just a solitary point on the road this season and have conceded the most goals (22) and scored the fewest (four) away from home.

Ahead of the match, we have picked out a three-leg #PickYourPunt which pays out at 10/1, featuring a goal from John McGinn and Blades defender Jack Robinson being shown a card.

#PickYourPunt @ 10/1

Both teams to score - No

Sheffield United seem unlikely to breach Villa's defence at their fortress home so the first leg of this Bet Builder is backing against both teams scoring on Friday.

The confident and in-form hosts should dominate from the first whistle and offer the Blades very few opportunities as they look to extend their superb Villa Park winning run.

Unai Emery's side have won all eight of their home league matches and there is very little reason to suggest this will not end up in another home success to nil - like Villa's last two matches in front of their own fans against Arsenal and Man City - two far superior teams compared to the bottom-of-the-table Blades.

Sheffield United have failed to score in three of their last four matches and they seem set to return home from the West Midlands with little to show for their efforts on Friday.

John McGinn to score anytime

McGinn is arguably Villa's most influential player as the Scotland international dictates play and momentum in the middle of the park for Emery's impressive side.

The 29-year-old is at his peak and already has six goals in all competitions this season, including netting the early winner against Arsenal in the most recent home game.

He will surely fancy his chances of adding to his tally against opposition who regularly concede chances and goals and he represents better value in the goalscorer markets than in-form striker Ollie Watkins and the likes of Moussa Diaby, Jacob Ramsey and Leon Bailey for the hosts.

Jack Robinson to be shown a card

Blades defender Robinson has just served a ban for accumulating bookings having picked up five yellow cards this term already, but he could immediately be back in trouble with the referee on Friday.

The 30-year-old has the unenviable task of trying to keep Bailey, Watkins and co quiet and he may have to resort to foul means as Villa break with pace.

The final selection boosts the #PickYourPunt up to 10/1.
