The starting lineups have been named for Aston Villa vs Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Unai Emery and Chris Wilder have named their starting lineups and substitutes ahead of this evening's Premier League fixture between Aston Villa and Sheffield United.

The Villans have the chance to go top of the table temporarily tonight and could be Premier League leaders on Christmas Day if both Liverpool and Arsenal drop points. The Blades, meanwhile, are in 20th position as it stands but could move to within three points of 17th-placed Nottingham Forest with a victory.
