Sheffield United host Arsenal in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup on Sunday, June 18th 2020. This is going to be a tight encounter between two sides who really have a chance for silverware here in the FA Cup.
Sheffield United have been very solid this season in the Premier League and in the FA Cup. Sheffield are in contention of getting European spots for next years Champions League and Europa League, however, their 3-0 defeat earlier this week against Manchester United did not help their goals. Sheffield had quite an easy match in the Round of 16 of the FA Cup, defeating Reading 2-1. Although this match went to extra-time, Sheffield United were the much better team and seemed to control most of the match. Sheffield United knows this is a very big chance for them to make it far into the FA Cup, and a victory over Arsenal is not something that would be shocking.
Arsenal is known as one of the most successful teams in the FA Cup, having won 12 FA Cup titles. Since Arsenal's last Premier League title in 2004, the FA Cup has been the only chance of Arsenal gaining Silverware in any particular season. The gunners know that they are going to have a tough game at hand, but their experience will also help them. Arsenal beat Portsmouth 2-0 to reach the quarterfinals and they will want to use the momentum they gained by beating Southampton earlier this week here against Sheffield United.
This is going to be a very tight encounter, and looking at their last match it certainly helps that prediction. Arsenal and Sheffield drew 1-1- earlier this year and since then, Sheffield has been the better Premier League team. However, this is the FA Cup, and Arsenal are one of the most experienced teams in this competition. The 12x champions are not going to give up on their hopes to lift silverware this season and they will definitely give it their all here. Sheffield United can definitely score a goal against the Arsenal defense, but in the end the gunners will prevail.
