Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways when they travel to Sheffield United on Sunday. The Gunners have been very inconsistent in recent months and results have not been good enough.
However, they’ll be facing a side that is equally limping in the Premier League. This is probably a clash between two clubs with the worst form in the English topflight at the moment.
Sheffield United have lost each of their last four league matches while Arsenal are equally winless in their last four games in all competitions.
And after a disappointing 1-1 draw against Slavia Prague in the Europa League in midweek, the Gunners will be aiming for a swift recovery. Currently languishing in 10th place, Arsenal’s chances of finishing in the top four are all but over, however, they can still qualify for the Europa League.
That makes Sunday’s game a must-win for Mikel Arteta’s side. Their work has also been cut out, as they face the 20th-ranked side in the Premier League. Sheffield United look destined for relegation after securing just 14 points from 30 matches this season.
Arsenal have very little to worry about in terms of suspensions and injuries. Bukayo Saka is fit again and featured against Slavia Prague in midweek, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Thomas Partey and Emile Smith-Rowe are all expected to start.
For Sheffield, though, they’ll look to keep it tight at the back but the likes of David McGoldrick, Oli McBurnie and Ben Osborn are goal threats and can hurt any opponent when given the chance.
Arsenal are, however, huge favourites for this game. As of the time of writing this article, the Gunners are priced at 1.62 by Betika to win and Sheffield is priced at 6.00 to cause an upset.
A draw is also priced at 4.10.
