Sheffield United v Arsenal: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Arsenal will be confident of reducing the deficit to Premier League leaders Liverpool when they make the trip to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United on Monday night.

The Gunners have been in scintillating Premier League form since the turn of the year, winning all six matches and scoring an impressive 25 goals during that period.

As for the Blades, they are 11 points from safety and it will take a huge effort for them to turn things around and avoid relegation straight back to the Championship.

Sheffield United v Arsenal betting tips and predictions

Over 3.5 goals - 11/10

Given Sheffield United's struggles at the back and Arsenal's efficiency in the final third, this game should produce goals and over 3.5 in the match looks like the smart play.

The Gunners have been red-hot in attack in 2024, netting 25 goals across their last six league outings, and they should have no issues breaking down an opposition that have conceded a league-high 66 times.

Mikel Arteta's side's last two away matches in the top flight have heralded 6-0 and 5-0 victories, while over 3.5 goals has landed in five of their last six league assignments.

It has been tough going for the Blades, who have conceded five times in each of their last three games in all competitions, once to Aston Villa and twice to Brighton.

Chris Wilder has been unable to stop the flow of goals and his side have kept just one clean sheet from 26 league fixtures, while they also suffered an 8-0 defeat at home to Newcastle earlier in the campaign.

Over 3.5 goals has landed in seven of United's last eight outings in all competitions, and it would be no surprise should this bet come in again as they will likely struggle to contain a rampant Arsenal.

Bukayo Saka to score anytime - 5/4

One player who has been in fine form for Arsenal is England international Bukayo Saka, who has scored seven goals from his last five league appearances.

The 22-year-old bagged back-to-back braces against West Ham and Burnley, while he also found the net against Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and most recently Newcastle.

Saka is playing with supreme confidence and he should be presented with a number of opportunities against a Blades defence that have conceded 66 times this season.

The 13/2 available on the Arsenal forward to net two or more is appealing, but the safer option is to back him to find the back of the net at least once at better than evens.

Anel Ahmedhodzic to be booked - 6/4

The Blades' discipline has been a huge talking point this season, as they have received 73 yellow cards and four reds to sit prominently in both of these departments.

Wilder won't want his side to go down without a fight, but they have strayed way over the line when it comes to fouls, especially in the last couple of weeks.

A number of players have found their way into the book, with one of those being Anel Ahmedhodzic. The 24-year-old defender has struggled to cope with the demands of the Premier League and he has been cautioned a leading eight times for United.

The most recent of those bookings for Ahmedhodzic came in the defeat to Wolves last time out, making it four cautions from his last eight appearances.

Given the amount of pace Arsenal have in the shape of Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, the Blades will likely be in for a long night and Ahmedhodzic may fall foul of the referee once again.
