Arsenal vs Sheffield Utd Prediction & Betting tips
The Premier League game between Arsenal and Sheffield United is scheduled for Sunday afternoon in North London. Last season, Sheffield United took a point at the Emirates Stadium, but in its current form it will be very difficult for Sheffield to achieve a result at Arsenal again this season.
Arsenal has started the new season well for the time being. Mikel Arteta’s team won two of the three league games, qualified for the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup this week and won the Community Shield at the end of August. Remarkably, the North Londoners have already taken on Liverpool three times in this early season. In the Community Shield, the game between The Gunners and The Reds ended in a 1-1 draw after which Arsenal was more efficient in taking the penalties. In the Premier League, Arsenal lost 3-1 to Liverpool last weekend.
On Thursday evening, Arsenal played an away game at Anfield for the second time in four days. The Carabao Cup duel with Liverpool ended in a goalless draw and this time again Arsenal were better at taking the penalties. As a result, The Gunners qualified for the quarter-finals of the cup tournament. It is up to Arsenal to continue their current form this weekend when Sheffield United is a guest at the Etihad Stadium. So last season, the North Londoners got no further than a 1-1 draw against Sheffield. In its current form, however, Arsenal should be able to keep the three points in the Emirates Stadium.
After three games, Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United is still at zero points in the Premier League. That is remarkable to say the least, because last season Sheffield United got off the starting blocks. In the current season, things are still not going well for the Wilder team. Sheffield United thus lost all three league games it played and was also immediately eliminated in the Carabao Cup. Opponents seem to have an answer to Sheffield’s way of playing, which was also not always happy in the first games of this season.
Sheffield, for example, faced a 0-2 deficit after six minutes in the game with Wolverhampton (0-2). In the cup match against Burnley (1-1), Sheffield was eliminated a few days later on penalties. The Blades then lost 1-0 to Aston Villa, but that was mainly because Wilder’s team got red after twelve minutes. Last weekend, Sheffield United lost with the same numbers at home to Leeds United, which scored the winning goal just before time. Sheffield United is currently in the corner where the blows fall. As if that were not enough, Sheffield also has a very tough schedule in the coming weeks, in which it will also hit Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in addition to Arsenal. Sheffield will start the second competition block in two weeks with a home game against Fulham and given the other opponents in the near future, it is crucial for Sheffield to grab points in that game. Every point that it takes in the other duels in the coming weeks is a nice bonus for Wilder and his men.
