Published: Sunday, 11th April 2021 at 5:30 pm

Arsenal will hope to end a run of just one win in four Premier League fixtures when they rock up at Bramall Lane to face lowly Sheffield United on Sunday.


The Gunners’s miserable league season continued last Sunday last weekend with the 3-0 stuffing at home to Liverpool – and they come into this clash having faced Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday.

Boss Mikel Arteta knows slipping into the bottom half of the table would be disastrous for the Gunners, whose eighth-place finish last term was their worst league finish since 1995.

Sheffield United, meanwhile, are all but relegated and lost 2-1 at Leeds last time out – a frustrating result for caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom.

The Blades lost by the same scoreline to Arsenal earlier in the season and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Gunners pick up a confidence boost from this tie on Sunday. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Sheffield United v Arsenal on TV and online.

Sheffield United v Arsenal team news

Sheffield United: George Baldock came off with suspected concussion against Leeds last weekend and may not feature here, while the game comes too soon for Billy Sharp, Sander Berge and Chris Basham.

Jayden Bogle is also being assessed for a head injury. Jack Robinson, Jack Rodwell and Jack O’Connell are all out.

Arsenal: Kieran Tierney and David Luiz are both sidelined with knee injuries for this one, meaning Gabriel and Holding are likely to start as the centre-backs with Cedric Soares and Calum Chambers either side.

Martin Odegaard picked up a knock on international duty and may not be fit to play here. Question marks remain over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's role in the first team.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Arsenal

Further injuries to the Blades squad doesn’t aid Heckingbottom here and this game is surely one Arteta will welcome as a platform to inject some confidence into his side.

Arsenal have been flighty all season and didn’t particularly enjoy the 2-1 win over United back in October – a game that yielded just seven shots on target all afternoon.

The Gunners should edge this but it could be close, especially if the visiting forward line labours when in possession. Don’t expect a classic in South Yorkshire.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 0-1 Arsenal (11/2 at bet365)
