THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams have found it difficult since returning to action and they will be prioritising this FA Cup quarter-final match. Sheffield United have picked up just one point from their three games, failed to score in all three games and lost their last two games 3-0. Arsenal managed to bounce back from two losses in a row to beat Southampton last time out but they were still far from convincing. Chris Wilder’s men can count on Egan and Henderson once again and their inclusion provides a major boost as would O’Connell’s if he passes a fitness test. Arsenal still have a variety of absentees however so Arteta’s options are limited. With the Blades strengthened, they will improve at the back and regain their defensive solidity. That should lead to a low-scoring game and under 2.5 goals is tempting here.
