Arsenal faces Sheffield United at the Emirates in a match from the 23th round of the Premier League
Arsenal faces Sheffield United at the Emirates in a match from the 23th round of the Premier League. It’s a good moment to give you our English Premier League tips for this fixture, so let’s go.
Against Sheffield United Arsenal will chase their second league win since the arrival of the young Spanish manager Mikel Arteta. The club’s ex-captain already led Arsenal to a win over Manchester United, but in the next round the Gunners once again failed to win and made just a 1-1 draw during the visit to Crystal Palace.
The problem for Arsenal is that right now they don’t have any time to lose. The Londoners are 10th in the standings with 28 points and they can’t hope of a good ending of the season if they don’t improve their results in some drastic way. In their last five games in the Premier League Arsenal won just once – against Manchester United, as we mentioned.
On Saturday Arsenal won’t be able to use the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored the only goal against Palace last week. Aubameyang got sent off in the second half at the Selhurst Park and he will miss the next game.
Sheffield United will travel to London with high confidence, being 6th in the league with 32 points – just two points behind the 5th Manchester United. The Blades are exceeding the expectations with their performance so far in the Premier League, there’s a little doubt about that.
In the last round United achieved their 8th win for the season. Chris Wilder’s boys faced West Ham United at their Bramall Lane and won the game with a goal from Oliver McBurnie in the second half.
