Arsenal vs Sheffield Utd Match Details
Arsenal vs Sheffield Utd kicks-off at 15.00 on Saturday 18 January at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal’s form under Arteta doesn’t look overly strong. He started with a draw against a struggling Bournemouth side that has conceded 13 goals without reply in four defeats since. Arsenal then lost at home to a Chelsea team that could only draw at Brighton in their next match.
A win over a hit-and-miss Manchester Utd team was a crowd pleaser but they followed that with a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace. That means that four of Arsenal’s last five games have produced less than 2.5 goals, and top-scorer Pierre-Emmerick Aubameyang is also set to miss this match through suspension.
Sheffield Utd Form
Sheffield Utd come into this match on the back of two away defeats. But those 2-0 defeats to the Premier League’s best two teams Liverpool and Manchester City shouldn’t detract from what has been a remarkable season on the road for the Blades.
Chris Wilder has steered Sheffield Utd to away wins at Everton, Norwich, and Brighton, and they’ve also drawn at Bournemouth, Chelsea, Wolves, Watford, West Ham, and Tottenham.
Another statistic that could be important in the context of this match-up is the fact that there have been less than 2.5 goals in eight of Sheffield Utd’s last nine matches.
Arsenal vs Sheffield Utd Head-To-Heads
Arsenal and Sheffield Utd have met just seven times in the Premier League, and both teams have won twice at home whilst three matches have been draws. Before this season, the teams last met in the 2006/7 season.
Interestingly, Sheffield Utd have already beaten Arsenal 1-0 this season at Bramhall Lane.
