Arsenal vs Sheffield United LIVE!

The Gunners know they must beat Sheffield United before beginning a horror run of fixtures, but struggled in a frustrating first half which ended 0-0.

Arsenal welcome the Blades before facing Manchester City, Leicester City and Manchester United after the international break – and having been beaten by Liverpool last time out, momentum is key for Mikel Arteta.

The visitors have endured a tough start to the season, though, with zero points and zero goals, but have just broken their club-transfer fee to sign Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster – and held firm in the opening 45 minutes at the Emirates.

Prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Sheffield United

Arsenal are a far more impressive team since Mikel Arteta’s arrival, though remain a work in progress. Sheffield United, meanwhile, have really struggled since the start of the season.

Rhian Brewster is a good buy for Chris Wilder, but has still not played a single minute of Premier League football. The Gunners should have enough.

Arsenal failed to beat Sheffield United in last season’s two Premier League meetings, drawing at home and being beaten at Bramall Lane.
