Pep Guardiola’s side’s extended 2019/20 season meant they missed gameweek 1 of the new term, while Wolves defeated Sheffield United 2-0.
84 mins: John McGinn picks up a yellow card. Time is ticking away from Sheffield United. They’ll want one chance, one effort to get back on level terms but I don’t think they’ll get one. Villa are in control.
