Sheffield United vs Arsenal: Squawka Says
Scoreline prediction: Sheffield United 0-2 Arsenal
Not since April 1991 have Arsenal tasted victory at Bramall Lane, and Mikel Arteta will be desperate to pick up points this weekend and offer a late assault on the European places, looking to compile the misery on managerless Sheffield United, while improving upon their current 10th-place standing in the table.
The Gunners have endured a disappointing domestic campaign this season, and those troubles were carried over to the Europa League on Thursday as Slavia Prague struck late on at the Emirates to gain a precious away goal in the club’s quarter-final clash, with the second leg taking place next week.
Arteta entered that contest off the back of two disappointing results: a lacklustre 3-0 loss to Liverpool and a 3-3 draw with West Ham, the latter of which they found themselves three down with only 32 minutes played. They valiantly battled back against their London neighbours, but they may view that game as dropped points.
As for the Blades, they recently parted with Chris Wilder after the South Yorkshireman failed to claw his boyhood club off the foot of the table, with interim boss Paul Heckingbottom now given the thankless task to see the season out. Their fate almost seems a foregone conclusion at this stage, with 15 points currently separating them from safety.
Sheffield United vs Arsenal: Match Stats
Alexandre Lacazette will be champing at the bit to take to the Bramall Lane turf this weekend and quickly make amends for the gilt-edged opportunity he squandered against Slavia Prague in midweek. With an hour on the clock and the match delicately poised, the Frenchman raced through on goal with all the time in the world, but fluffed his lines, striking the woodwork. He will want to put that miss behind him, and he comes into this contest with a formidable away record.
Lacazette, who is Arsenal’s leading goalscorer this season and the only player at the club to chalk up double digits, has bagged eight of his 11 finishes on the road, a staggering 72% of his output. He will be relishing another trip away from north London this weekend, and against the division’s whipping boys, he could have a field day, while also pacifying frustrations about his missed opportunity against Prague.

Sheff Utd have lost a staggering 24 times in the league this season, but Arsenal were made to work for their win. Having fired a blank for 60-odd minutes, they finally breached Aaron Ramsdale’s net at the Emirates back in October, with goals from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe settling the tie, though a late David McGoldrick goal made it a nervy finish for Arteta. Incredibly, the Blades are unbeaten in all four home Premier League matches against Arsenal, winning their last two 1-0 in 2006/07 and 2019/20. Can fortress Bramall Lane hold firm once again? Or will Arsenal end a three-decade duck in South Yorkshire?
