Arsenal vs Sheffield United Betting Tips

Sheffield United will be looking to win their first points of the season when they travel to the capital for a clash with the Gunners.

As things stand, Chris Wilder’s men aren’t only point-less but they’re also goal-less having lost all three of their opening Premier League games to nil.

Bearing this in mind, it’s no surprise to see the Blades priced at 5/1 by both Betfair and PaddyPower. Arsenal, on the other hand, have been handed the favorites tag with the 11/20 offer.

These two teams have met on three occasions in recent years. Sheffield United got the better of the Gunners in the league last term having won 1-0 at Brammall Lane before managing a 1-1 draw at the Emirates.

However, in their last head to head contest – an FA Cup clash – it was Arsenal who claimed a 2-1 victory away in South Yorkshire.

The Gunners went on to win that FA Cup as well as the resulting Community Shield. Mikel Arteta’s men have also won two of their opening three Premier League games and they will be looking for a fourth straight competitive win at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette has bagged three goals in Arsenal’s opening three Premier League games, and he could be the man to watch this weekend. The Frenchman is currently priced at 5/2 to open the scoring and 13/10 to score anytime; both sets of prices are provided by Betfair and PaddyPower.

These odds offer good value for a player who is clearly in good form. However, our recommendation is to back a 2-0 victory for Arsenal which currently provides even more value at 6/1.

    Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe fire Arsenal to victory

    Sheffield United slipped to a fourth straight Premier League defeat.

    Arsenal scored two quickfire second-half goals to return to winning ways in the Premier League and leave Sheffield United without a point so far this season.

    The Gunners had won their opening two games before losing at champions Liverpool on Monday – but Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe struck inside three minutes of one another to seal a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Blades, with David McGoldrick scoring a fine consolation for the visitors.

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta named a few surprises in his starting line-up as Mohamed Elneny and Dani Ceballos started in midfield and Eddie Nkeitah was preferred to Alexandre Lacazette to spearhead the attack.

    Nketiah had a fine early chance after being picked out with a ball over the top, but a poor touch took him wide of goal and the opportunity was lost.

    Blades boss Chris Wilder was left fuming as David Luiz escaped what could have been an early red card. The Arsenal defender allowed the ball to roll past him and pulled back Oliver Burke’s shirt as the forward burst through as a result – but referee Lee Mason was unmoved.

    The opening half-hour saw little in the way of goalmouth action but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came close to opening the scoring with a little under 10 minutes left of the half.

    Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale’s clearance only reached Ceballos, who teed-up his captain for a fine, curling effort which the Sheffield United goalkeeper did well to tip behind.

    It was then Arsenal’s turn to call for a red card as Aubameyang was upended by Sander Berge, the Norway midfielder booked for the foul.

    As a result of the challenge, Aubameyang was still limping when he headed down the tunnel at half-time – but he emerged after the interval unscathed.

    He was inches away from turning home a Ceballos pass as Arsenal’s push for an opening goal continued in vain.

    With chances at a premium, Arteta turned to his bench and introduced Pepe in place of Nketiah, rejigging his forward line to deploy Aubameyang through the middle.

    The alterations did the trick as the first move of quality in the game saw Arsenal break the deadlock on the hour.

    Elneny burst into the box and found Aubameyang, whose ball in to Hector Bellerin saw the full-back cross for Saka to head home at the back post – a great way for the 18-year-old to toast his first senior England call-up.

    Just three minutes later and the points were secured, Bellerin again the provider as he slipped the ball through to Pepe.

    The Ivory Coast forward broke into the box unchallenged and fired low past Ramsdale for his first goal since he turned home a penalty in the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final win against Sheffield United in June.

    As is often the case with Arsenal, things were not all plain sailing as McGoldrick curled in a fine goal from 20 yards to bag Sheffield United’s first league goal of the season.

    But they could not find a way to pick up their first points of the campaign as Arsenal saw out the closing stages to secure the win.
