class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Gunners are on a poor defensive run and despite their opponents being the Premier League's basement club, our tipster is backing the Blades to net
Arsenal travel to Bramall Lane to face the Premier League’s bottom club Sheffield United on Sunday with Mikel Arteta’s men looking to get back to winning ways.
Thursday night’s 1-1 home draw against Slavia Prague in the Europa League made it four games without a victory, and the Gunners will also have one eye on the return leg of that quarter-final coming up next week.
This fixture certainly provides a strong opportunity for the visitors as the Blades are all but mathematically down, although they have shown plenty of spirit in recent weeks despite their lowly points tally.

United remain without a number of players as Sander Berge, Billy Sharp, Chris Basham, Jack Robinson and Jack O´Connell are all ruled out, while George Baldock and Jayden Bogle are doubts.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal Preview
The visitors head to South Yorkshire following an extremely disappointing Europa League result, which saw them concede in injury time against Slavia Prague.
That 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium was the 14th consecutive game in which Arsenal have conceded in all competitions, and the run has seen goalkeeper Bernd Leno struggle while the back-four have also looked vulnerable.
Sheffield United will therefore certainly fancy their chances of scoring, with the Blades netting in seven of their last 10 home league games including against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
Sheffield United vs Arsenal Predictions
Both teams to score is offered at evens (2.00) while the price of 8/11 (1.73) for Sheffield United to score a goal looks like offering serious value given Arsenal’s defensive deficiencies.
