THE TEAM NEWS

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal were unable to make it back-to-back Premier League wins as they were held to a draw in their game against Crystal Palace.
  • The Gunners did well to hold on to the point after they had captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent off for a bad second half challenge.
  • Aubameyang will be a big loss for Arsenal and he will likely be joined on the sidelines by Sead Kolasinac who is struggling with a thigh injury.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, David Luiz, Saka; Guendouzi, Xhaka; Pepe, Ozil, Nelson; Lacazette

Unavailable: Tierney (Injured), Chambers (Injured), Aubameyang (Suspended)

Doubtful: Bellerin (Injured), Torreira (Injured), Kolasinac (Injured)

SHEFFIELD UTD

  • Sheffield United benefited from VAR overturning a late West Ham equaliser as they claimed all three points in their clash last week.
  • Oli McBurnie's goal was the difference between the two teams and he is expected to retain his place in the side on the back of that.
  • David McGoldrick had an off night and he could make way for Lys Mousett in what would be the only change to last week's starting XI.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McBurnie, Mousset

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Moore (Injured), Verrips (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Arsenal have lost three of their last four home games in the Premier League and face a difficult task to improve that record. They host Sheffield United and could do so without a recognised left-back which the visitors are good enough to exploit and they could take at least a point from this trip.
