Sheffield United vs Arsenal prediction comes before the 9th Premier League round matchup. This game will be played on Monday, October 18th, at the Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England. In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two English sides.
Sheffield United vs Arsenal Betting Tips
Both teams have big ambitions for this season. Arsenal want to finish among the top four teams, thus grabbing themselves a ticket to the Champions League. Sheffield United just want to finish the season above the relegation zone, which would be a decent achievement for the team that played in the Championship last season.
Both teams have started the season pretty well. Arsenal are currently at the 3rd place on the Premier League table with 15 points. Sheffield United are at the 13th place, with 9 points and a chance to get much, much higher pretty soon. Of course, for that to happen, they would need to beat Arsenal. In regular circumstances, such a thing would seem like a mission impossible, but Sheffield United have already took the scalps of some pretty heavyweight teams. They played a draw with Chelsea at the Old Trafford and won against Everton at the Goodison Park.
They also beat Crystal Palace at home. Still, their home performances definitely need improvements. This team has lost their previous three Premier League matches at the Bramall Lane. Still, they didn’t embarrass themselves in those games, even though they played against such strong opponents as Liverpool and Leicester. Actually, Sheffield United are yet to lose with more than one goal difference this season.
Can Arsenal be the team to do that? They are in a fantastic form at the moment in all competitions they’re taking a part in. Of course, for the Gunners, the Premier League is a top priority. And considering that several Premier League heavyweights are having serious problems this season (Tottenham, Manchester United, Chelsea), their chances of finishing among the top four seem pretty bright. In fact, this team seems like a huge favorite for finishing the season in the third place, just behind Liverpool and Manchester City.
But, in order to achieve such a feat, they need to win matches like this one. Dropping points against a recently promoted team such as Sheffield United would be considered a failure. Even though the Gunners feel much more comfortable when playing in front of their own crowd, they will have to go for a win on Monday.

Arsenal Form and Latest News
The Gunners have been in a brilliant form lately and, rather surprisingly for this team, they don’t have a too long injury list. Actually, their only player who’s struggling with an injury is Lacazette. The only thing that’s worrying them ahead of their trip to Sheffield is that they are famously poor when playing away from home. This season, that wasn’t the case, but in 2018-2019, they were dreadful in away matches.
