In an exciting return to the Premier League, Arsenal is poised to take on Sheffield United in the comfort of their home ground. The Arsenal squad is brimming with determination as they strive to claim victory and maintain their strong foothold in the league. Fresh off their exhilarating triumph against Sevilla in the Champions League, Mikel Arteta’s team is riding a wave of confidence.
While their performance this season hasn’t consistently matched the standards set in the previous campaign, the Gunners have shown remarkable resilience by embarking on an undefeated streak in the Premier League. They now prepare to face Sheffield United, a team that currently finds itself languishing at the bottom of the league table.
Arsenal is facing uncertainty as Gabriel Jesus is questionable for the upcoming match due to a late-game hamstring issue against Sevilla. Additionally, Thomas Partey’s availability remains in doubt, leaving only Jurrien Timber as the long-term absentee from the squad.
On the other hand, Sheffield United is grappling with an extensive injury list, which includes key players such as Anel Ahmedhodzic, John Egan, Tom Davies, Chris Basham, Adam Davies, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Daniel Jebbison, Max Lowe, and Will Osula, who are all sidelined. The participation of Oli McBurnie remains uncertain for the impending clash.
When we look at their historical encounters, Arsenal has secured victory on six occasions, while Sheffield United has managed to triumph twice. The battle between these two teams has ended in a draw on three occasions.
As the anticipation builds, the predicted lineups for the upcoming match are as follows:
Arsenal XI: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli
Sheffield United XI: Foderingham; Bogle, Trusty, Robinson, Thomas; McAtee, Vinicius Souza, Norwood, Hamer; Brewster, Archer
