BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Sheffield United vs

Bottom of the table Sheffield United host Arsenal on Sunday night, with both sides coming into this game off the back of defeats and looking to make amends.

SHEFFIELD UNITED

It’s now a matter of time before The Blades go down. They picked up their 24th defeat of the season last weekend to Leeds, losing 2-1. This is now ten losses in a row for Sheffield United who are 15 points from safety, with just eight games to play.

Sheffield United parted ways with Chris Wilder last month as they are now looking to rebuild for life in the Championship. These next few games will be huge in deciding the futures of some of these players in terms of whether they will have to go down, or if other Premier League clubs will look to take them.

Heckingbottoms side will line up we expect in their customary back three, supported by two wingbacks. As he doesn’t know his best side yet and with nothing to lose their could be some changes to the starting eleven. Against Arsenal, they won’t see much of the ball and it will be what they do off it that counts.

ARSENAL

The Gunners are having a poor season in the Premier League and were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool at the Emirates last week. This was their 12th defeat of the season and highlighted the importance of good recruitment this summer.

However, they are still in the Europa League, with games either side of this fixture. Their best way into the Champions League this season, is via the Europa League. Arteta will rest players in this match we expect to give them the best chance in Europe.

Arsenal like to be on the ball as much as possible and should be against Sheffield United. They need to win this game to stay inside the top ten on the Premier League. Arteta has a lot of quality young players at the club and could go with them against the side bottom of the league.

Team News

Sharp, Berge and O’Connell make up Sheffield Uniteds missing players. Bogle, Baldock, Basham, Rodwell and Robinson are doubts.

Tierney and Luiz are both out for Arsenal.

Match Prediction

Sheffield United are really struggling and Arsenal should have too much quality for them in this one.

Odds 4/7
