Sheffield United v Arsenal Premier League Preview, 21st October 8.00pm
The Blades are down in the bottom half of the table and it surprisingly has been their home form which has deserted them this season. That could spell trouble as Arsenal pay them a visit on Monday night. The Gunners will be looking to end the weekend just where they started, inside the top three in the table.

Sheffield United News and Form
The Blades took a point in a 0-0 draw at Watford last time out. Their overall league record this season is W2 D3 L3 but they have had far better returns out on the road than they have done at Bramall Lane. That’s been unexpected because they look set up to have a go at teams more at home than they are on the road. Their home record is W1 L3, and they are on a three-match losing streak.
Sheffield United have failed to score in three of their last four top-flight games, which is starting to be a concern for them. They have only tallied the two home goals this season in the league. But they haven’t been bad defensively as they have only averaged a goal per game against them at Bramall Lane. Just 25% of league games at Bramall Lane have made it over 2.5 goals this season.
Each of their last four league outings have also gone under the goal line. The Blades have been level at half time in three of their four home games this season (L1). Of the seven goals which they have recorded this season, six of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Just twice this season have the Blades managed to open the scoring in a game. Liverpool are the only side to concede fewer goals than Sheffield United this season’s EPL.

Arsenal News and Form
Arsenal are riding high in the table but their defence still looks a bit shaky. They did manage to earn their second clean sheet of the season last time out, as they took a 1-0 home win over Bournemouth thanks to a goal from David Luiz. That is a five-match undefeated of form that the Gunners are currently on. So that is some kind of positive for them.
Arsenal have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six fixtures. Their away record sits at W1 D2 L1 this season and they have drawn their last two on the road against Man Utd and Spurs. Having faced Liverpool as well away from home this season, Arsenal have had a tough sequence of away fixtures. Their only league away success this season happened against Burnley.
The Gunners have actually done better defensively away from home than at the Emirates. Still, they have averaged 1.25 goals per road game against them, with only the one away clean sheet. All four of Arsenal’s league wins this season have been by one goal margin only. Twice they have been losing at the halftime break on their travels, but have scored almost two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.
Sheffield United v Arsenal Tips & Odds
Who will win – Sheffield United v Arsenal Predictions
The Gunners have the quality in front of goal to bag themselves three points. This is not likely to be a comfortable fixture for them at all though and it’s worth backing the Blades to get on the scoresheet. But they don’t have the home form to back it up for the win. Arsenal to win.
