Arsenal v Sheffield Utd Team News

The Gunners were hoping to register their first back to back wins in the Premier League under new manager Mikel Arteta last weekend in a match against Crystal Palace but they were held to a 1-1 draw in a game which saw their main striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent off for a bad challenge in the second half.

Although they were able to hold off for a draw for the rest part of the game, Saturday’s fixture poses to be a must-win for them to keep their hopes for qualifying for European football next season. Their recent home form hasn’t been good at all, losing three of their last four Premier League fixtures at the Emirates.

While the Gunners may look like a resurgent team after the Spaniard took over, Mikel Arteta’s charges have to turn up in this fixture against a Sheffield side that is performing above all expectations in this campaign.

The visitors are currently four points ahead of the hosts and seven points adrift of fourth place. They have gone against all expectations and nobody would have envisaged that the Blades would be flying high at this time of the season. They will be aiming to get a league double win against the Gunners for the first time since 1946/47 season, and Chris Wilder’s men are up for the challenge having won back to back wins in the FA cup against Fylde and West Ham consecutively.

They also enjoy the best defensive record this season, showcasing that they are a difficult side to breach. If they are to maintain this form until the end of the season, they will continue to surprise teams sitting above and below them in the league.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Suspended), Chambers C. (Knee), Tierny K. (Shoulder), Bellerin H. (Muscle), Kolasinac S. (Thigh) and Torreira L. (Injury) are set to miss this fixture for the home side. Sheffield don’t have any injured or suspended players.

Pre-Match Odds:

Arsenal - 1.90
Draw - 3.64
Sheffield Utd - 4.54

Arsenal vs Sheffield Utd Predictions

While the performance levels have certainly improved for Arsenal after Mikel Arteta took charge, they haven’t yet set the world alight and we expect Sheffield to cause problems for the Gunners. This will be an entertaining fixture and we expect goals from both sides, a draw or win in favor of the Gunners is most likely to be the end result.
