Arsenal will travel to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United in this Tuesday morning English Premier League fixture. The Blades have been poor at home and have lost their last 3 there. Can Arsenal take advantage of that? Read on for Sheffield United vs Arsenal betting tips and predictions
Newly promoted Sheffield United were expected to be the whipping boys of the Premier League this season. However, manager Chris Wilder was adamant that he was sticking to his fluid brand of football that got them to this position, and many expected this to result in a season spent battling at the bottom of the table.
There’s still a long way to go, of course, but it’s fair to say that early signs are fairly promising as the Blades sit 13th in the table, level on points with Manchester United and having really held their own in the majority of matches so far.
One potential concern for Sheffield United is their form at Bramall Lane. They beat Crystal Palace in their first outing there, but they have since lost 3 on the spin and have only scored just 2 goals there all season. Arsenal’s defensive record away from home is poor, but even they should be confident of a clean sheet.
The Gunners sit an impressive 3rd in the Premier League table, just a point adrift of Manchester City. A sustained title challenge is already looking beyond them this term, but Unai Emery has the team moving in the right direction.
That being said, they do have their problems when on the road. Arsenal have won just 1 of their 4 road trips in the league this season, and the normally ruthless attacking threat becomes a bit more toothless away from the Emirates. They have scored just 5 of their 13 league goals away from home, so they could have a difficult time against a Sheffield United defence that proved very resilient against Liverpool last month.
