Sheffield United Host Arsenal In Monday Night Football

Monday’s football game at Bramall Lane pitches together Sheffield United and Arsenal. The two clubs have totally different ambitions in the 2019/2020 Premier League season. The Blades have been playing above expectations in the English top flight. They are on the right track to meet the goal and secure the elite division’s survival.

The Gunners let slip a 2-0 lead against Watford to hold out for a draw earlier in the season, while only narrowly beating Bournemouth in their last outing.

But the international break has allowed several injured stars to recover and could now feature at Bramall Lane. Alexandre Lacazette has been a huge miss, the club’s player of the season last played on September 1 in the draw against Tottenham.

The French international will be in the starting lineup today to add to the attacking force. Lacazette scored in his last match against Spurs in the North London derby before sustaining an injury. Another player who could make a milestone return is Kieran Tierney. The Scottish left-back is yet to make his Premier League debut. The 22-year-old joined the Gunners in the summer but was recovering from a groin injury.

He has turned out for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup and Europa League but has yet to get his career in the EPL. He is however expected to start against Sheffield United, replacing Sead Kolasinac. Bukayo Saka is one teenager the Sheffield United defense should look out for. He has been impressive since coming in their last Europa tie.

Meanwhile, the home side is trying to build on their last draw against Watford and record their second win in the season. They did well to come back from behind to hold Chelsea to a 2-2 draw. The result has shown their relentless efforts of not giving up.

Sheffield United are tough to beat at home and seeing that Arsenal are on a three-game straight win run. We predict that the newcomers are going to grab something from Monday’s clash. In their last meeting at Bramall Lane in the English elite division, the Blades recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Gunners. Unai Emery’s troops did well to record a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bournemouth. Beating Sheffield United on the road is easier said than done.

Despite their position in the table, there remains plenty of negativity surrounding Unai Emery, his tactics and selection choices. The Blades are a hungry side and seeing they are the host it will be very difficult for Arsenal to win them easily. Arsenal is also having a Europa match to play on Thursday and, so we are predicting they will not really come with their all. To predict the game, seeing arsenal is a good scoring side, it will be safe to predict the number of goals.
