HEAVY RAIN OUTSIDE THE HOTEL END STAND STORY: Sheffield United arrived in Birmingham on Wednesday (June 17) afternoon ahead of their Premier League showdown with relegation-battling Aston Villa.
The fixture is the first since the domestic league was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Yorkshire-based side arrived in three separate team coaches as part of the league's measures to contain any potential spread of the coronavirus.
The home players arrived largely by car throughout the day.
Ninety-two Premier League games will be crammed into the next five weeks, with Arsenal's trip to

It will be a poignant evening, with both games played inside empty stadiums and marked before kickoff by a minute's silence for the more than 40,000 people to die of the virus in the UK.
Villa entered the shutdown in freefall with four consecutive defeats, leaving them second from bottom.
This may feel like a fresh start though and a win over Sheffield United would see Dean Smith's side leapfrog three clubs into 16th spot.
The bad news for Villa, however, is that Sheffield United will be hugely motivated, knowing three points would lift them to the heady heights of fifth.
