Both Sheffield United and Aston Villa gained promotion from the Championship last season.

Some Sheffield United fans are fuming over an Aston Villa player’s call up to the England squad at the expense of one of theirs.

Sheffield United have made a brighter start to their first campaign back in the Premier League than Aston Villa, who sit six positions and three points below them in the table.

The Blades (seven) have also conceded four fewer goals than the Villans and boast the bottom half’s best defence so far.

Nevertheless, there are two members of the Aston Villa back line in Gareth Southgate’s latest Three Lions squad and none from Sheffield United.

And the following Blades fans feel that at least one of those (Tyrone Mings) should have been omitted in favour of his Bramall Lane counterpart (Jack O’Connell)…








In Mings’ defence, this is not his first taste of life in the Premier League, having spent four years on Bournemouth’s books.

O’Connell, on the other hand, is new to the top-flight, having played a key role in Sheffield United’s swift ascent from League One.

Sheffield United and Aston Villa fans – what do you make of Southgate’s latest selection?
