Reason For Arsenal vs Sheffield United Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in 100% of Sheffield United’s competitive matches this season.
  • Under 2.5 goals hit the net in each of Arsenal and Sheffield United’s Premier League meetings last term.
  • Sheffield United are yet to win a point or score a goal in the Premier League this season.
  • Arsenal won eight and drew two of their last 10 Premier League home fixtures.

Gunners restore some pride

Just days after being given the runaround by Liverpool in a 3-1 defeat at Anfield in the Premier League, Arsenal restored some pride in Merseyside in mid-week by knocking the Reds out of the Carabao Cup on penalty kicks.

While Thursday’s cup fixture was contested between two reshuffled teams, the Gunners’ spot kick triumph should provide them with a confidence kick ahead of their meeting with Sheffield United on Sunday.

Arsenal have now won six of their seven fixtures in all competitions this season, though their attacking output remains relatively modest under Mikel Arteta, with the Gunners notching just 1.5 goals per 90 minutes of action so far.

Blades continue to look blunt

Sheffield United, who are still searching for their first point and first goal of the new Premier League campaign, were a little unlucky to lose late on against Leeds in their last outing, though their eventual 1-0 reverse at Bramall Lane prolonged their miserable start.

The Blades’ lack of attacking thrust saw them limp over the line last season, and having failed to add star dust to their frontline over the summer, Chris Wilder’s side look worrying short on final third quality again this term.

Only two clubs have averaged fewer shots per game in the Premier League so far this season than United (nine), while the Blades’ shots tally at Villa Park (six) was the lowest registered by any away team since the campaign kicked off.

Don’t expect fireworks at the Emirates Stadium

But while the Blades’ blunt edge continues to be a major problem, United remain a tough team to break down at the other end.

Chris Wilder’s superbly drilled defensive unit have conceded just four goals in three league games so far, and United shipped a single goal in each of their most recent brace of defeats against Aston Villa and Leeds.

In fact, it’s worth noting that under 2.5 goals were scored in 100% of Sheffield United’s competitive fixtures to date this term, and the Blades’ lack of threat has combined with their stout defending to produce a string of low-key contests.

Against Mikel Arteta’s modest-goalscorers on Sunday, we expect chances to score to be limited again, making the under 2.5 goals market the outstanding choice for the game.

Under 2.5 goals were registered in each of Arsenal and Sheffield United’s league meetings in 2019/20, and this season’s evidence suggests a similar outcome is likely.

Our correct score prediction backs the Gunners to eventually eke out a 1-0 victory however. With eight wins and two draws from 10 Premier League matches at the Emirates since the turn of the year, Arsenal’s home form has improved immeasurably under Arteta, and a single goal should be enough for the hosts to gather three points against a Blades team that’s struggling badly at the business end of the pitch.

Arsenal injuries and team news

Shkodran Mustafi, Emile Smith Rowe, Pablo Mari, Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers are all still in the treatment room for Arsenal.

Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should return to the XI having sat out Arsenal’s cup tie against Liverpool in mid-week.

Sheffield United injuries and team news

Lys Mousset and Jack O’Connell are both notable absentees for Sheffield United with toe and knee injuries respectively. Simon Moore has a broken finger and is almost certain to miss out too
