In the forecast for the match of the 4th round of the Premier League “Arsenal” – “Sheffield United” we evaluated the start of the teams in the new championship and prepared a bet on this meeting.
Against the background of Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and even Manchester City, Arsenal started this season like a real grand. Firstly, the team with Mikel Arteta won the second trophy. Arsenal beat Liverpool in the FA Super Cup. Secondly, the start of the Gunners in the new championship turned out to be successful. The London club won the West Ham derby (2: 1), defeated Fulham (3: 0), and only in the third meeting lost to Liverpool (1: 3).
Nevertheless, two victories were enough for the “Gunners” to be on the fifth line in the first three rounds .
In the League Cup, Arsenal have dealt with Leicester (2-0), and this week Liverpool have been on penalties. That is, Mikel Arteta’s team made it to the quarterfinals of the tournament.
In the Premier League, Arsenal have regained good home form, which used to be an integral part of the club’s game. The Gunners have not lost ten matches in a row at home in the Premier League. Arsenal have won seven of their last eight matches at the Emirates.
Six players were injured at Arsenal: Emil Smith Rowe, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Pablo Mari, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli.
After a flamboyant return to the Premier League and even a struggle to get into the Champions League or the Europa League, Sheffield United failed to start the new championship. In the first three rounds, the “blades” lost to Aston Villa (0: 1), “Wolverhampton” (0: 2) and “Leeds” (0: 1), failing to score in these matches. Sheffield United are in the penultimate place in the table, behind only Fulham. Taking into account last season, the losing streak of “blades” in the Premier League is six matches.
Somehow quickly Chris Wilder’s wards flew out of the League Cup, where they lost on penalties to Burnley. The main time ended with the score 1: 1.
Unsuccessfully “Sheffield United” began to play on the road. Although before Christmas, the “blades” at a party did not lose at all. In their last six away Premier League games, Sheffield have lost five times.
Three football players are not available to Chris Wilder for the upcoming match: Simon Moore, Lys Musse and Jack O’Connell.
Arsenal’s home unbeaten run in the Premier League has reached ten matches.
In all four of the Gunners’ previous home games in the Premier League, the bet “both to score” was played.
Sheffield United’s losing streak in the Premier League has reached six meetings.
In five of their last six Premier League games, Sheffield have failed to score.
On the road, Sheffield have won only one of 11 previous Premier League matches.
In the Premier League, Arsenal have been unable to beat Sheffield for three straight games. But in the cups, the Gunners beat the Blades in all the last three matches. Last season, Sheffield beat Arsenal 1-0 at home, and played 1-1 away with the London club. In the FA Cup in June, the Gunners won (2: 1).
06/28/20 Sheffield United Arsenal 12
18.01.20 Arsenal Sheffield United eleven
10/21/19 Sheffield United Arsenal ten
There is no doubt that Sheffield is completely unhappy with his position in the table. Chris Wilder’s charges will do their best to fix this already in the upcoming meeting. Another thing is that Arsenal are now in excellent shape and have regained a confident home game. The Gunners should beat ShY, but there will hardly be many goals.
Our prediction – Arsenal win + total under 3.5 goals for 2.19 in BC Winline
