In the English Premier League, Arsenal will host Sheffield United at the Emirates Stadium in North London. 

It has been an extremely tough season for Arsenal and that is evident by the fact that the team are 10th on the ladder with only 28 points from their 22 games. In their last outing, Arsenal only managed a 1-1 draw away from home at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. Arsenal took the lead in the 12th minute but they didn’t do enough to maintain their positions. To make matters worse, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received a red card meaning the superstar striker won’t be available for this match. This could be a potentially difficult match for Arsenal since they are playing against a good team in Sheffield United. 

On the other side of the coin, Sheffield United enter this match following a strong few months. Sheffield United are currently 6th on the Premier League ladder with 32 points from their 22 games. In their previous outing, Sheffield United defeated West Ham 1-0 at home. It was a very strong performance by the Blades as they had 13 shots and close to 50% of the possession. Oli McBurnie was the star performer for Sheffield United as he scored the winning goal. Things are looking good for Sheffield United and they will be hoping to get a good result from this match. 

Sheffield United and Arsenal played each other earlier in the season. The match was played at Sheffield where the Blades won 1-0. 

This should be an extremely close match since both teams are extremely similar. That being said, I am going to pick Sheffield United to win. Arsenal have struggled this season and I see them having a very poor match with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suspended. Sheffield United look very confident and I see them being good enough to win away from home. 

Pick:
Arsenal
