Sheffield United vs Arsenal Predictions


Arsenal won't get a better chance to end a four-game winless run than Sunday's trip to bottom of the table Sheffield United. I'm tipping the Gunners to win with both teams to score.

  • Sheffield United have lost 7 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Sheffield United have lost 24 of their 30 matches this season (Premier League). 
  • Sheffield United have lost their last 2 matches against Arsenal (Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have seen BTTS in their last 3 matches against Arsenal (all competitions).
  • Arsenal have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 14 matches (all competitions).
  • Arsenal have seen BTTS in 9 of their last 12 matches (all competitions). 

Head-to-Head


Arsenal hold a 50-40 head to head advantage over Sheffield United. There have also been 27 draws in 117 clashes.

The Gunners have won the last two in a row, including a 2-1 win earlier this season. Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe scored for Arsenal before David McGoldrick got a late consolation.

Sheffield United Form


Sheffield United have moved closer to the Championship trapdoor with three straight Premier League defeats and four in a row in all competitions.

The latest, a 2-1 loss to Yorkshire rivals Leeds last weekend, means the Blades have now lost 24 of their 30 Premier League games this season.

Ben Osborn scored for Sheffield United to cancel out Jack Harrison's opener. But a Phil Jagielka own goal was the difference in the end.

The Blades have also lost to Southampton 2-0, Leicester 5-0 and Chelsea 2-0 in their last four matches.

Sheffield United Team News


Sheffield United are still in the midst of a defensive shortage with Chris Basham, Jack Robinson and Jack O’Connell out.

John Egan and Enda Stevens are both available after injuries to ease the pressure on the backline. Jayden Bogle and George Baldock could also pass fitness tests.

Midfielders Sander Berge and Jack Rodwell and striker Billy Sharp are also ruled out. 

Arsenal Form


Arsenal have now gone four games without a victory after a disappointing week for Mikel Arteta's side.

The Gunners lost 3-0 at home to Liverpool last weekend, and conceded a late equaliser in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final with Slavia Prague on Thursday.

Prior to the international break, Arsenal lost 1-0 at home to Olympiakos and needed to come back from three-down to draw 3-3 with West Ham.

Arteta's side have not kept a clean sheet in their last 14 matches dating back to the end of January.

Arsenal Team News


Defensive pair David Luiz and Kieran Tierney are both ruled out.

Martin Odegaard missed the Europa League game on Thursday due to an ankle injury and will have a late fitness test.
