Sheffield United News and Form – Can the Blades beat Arsenal?

It was a point earned by Sheffield United in their last game. That was from a 0-0 draw at bottom side Watford. The Blades are W2 D3 L3 this season in the top flight, but their form has been better on the road than at Bramall Lane. Despite looking a positive, attacking side on home turf, the Blades have only managed to take a W1 L3 record at the Lane. They do like to have a go at teams there though, but they are on a three-match losing home streak.

Sheffield United have only scored in one of their last four league games. So that is something that they need to get fixed quickly. It has only been the two goals on home soil that they have taken this season. But defensively they have been very good, more than holding their own in that department. It has been an average of a goal per game against them at home this season. Just 25% of league games at Bramall Lane have made it over 2.5 goals this season.

Their last four league games home and away combined, have also ended under the 2.5 goals line. Sheffield United have been level at half time in all but one of their four home games (L1). The Blades have scored six of their seven league goals this season in the second half of games. They have opened the scoring in just two fixtures. But going back to their defence, Liverpool are the only team to have a better defensive record than the Blades this season in the EPL.

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal are riding high in the table but their defence still looks a bit shaky. They did manage to earn their second clean sheet of the season last time out, as they took a 1-0 home win over Bournemouth thanks to a goal from David Luiz. That is a five-match undefeated streak of form that the Gunners are currently on.

Arsenal have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six fixtures. Their away record sits at W1 D2 L1 this season and they have drawn their last two on the road against Man Utd and Spurs. Having faced Liverpool as well away from home this season, Arsenal have had a tough sequence of away fixtures. Their only league away success this season happened against Burnley.

The Gunners have actually done better defensively away from home than at the Emirates. Still, they have averaged 1.25 goals per road game, with only the one away clean sheet. All four of Arsenal’s league wins this season have been by one goal margin only. Twice they have been losing at the halftime break on their travels, but have scored almost two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.

Sheffield United v Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal to win: While the defence of Sheffield United has been good, this is going to be a big test for them on home soil against Arsenal. The Gunners have plenty in attack and the home form of the Blades just isn’t there. Arsenal should eventually break them down. Away win.
