The final Premier League game of this round comes at Bramall Lane, as last-placed Sheffield United face third-placed Arsenal.

Everton’s points deduction being reduced to six points from 10 has left Sheffield United 11 points adrift of Nottingham Forest in 17th. The drop is starting to look an inevitability for the Blades, and a home game against one of the best sides in world football doesn’t look to offer much respite.

Arsenal are in the midst of what is shaping up to be one of, if not the best title races in Premier League history. They will be in no mood to let up and may find themselves five points off the lead by the time this game kicks off, with every point counting in the fight for the title.

This should be an entertaining contest even if it is likely to be somewhat one-sided, with games featuring these two sides seeing plenty of goals in recent weeks.

It also looks like a game with lots of possibilities for betting, so if you’re planning on having a Sheffield United v Arsenal bet builder, make sure to read on for our heavily-researched tips to help you craft a potential Monday night winner.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal Predicted Lineups

Wilder to make just one change

Rhian Brewster started last weekend and looks set to continue here, with new signing Ben Brereton Diaz doubtful thanks to a hamstring injury. James McAtee will also continue to partner Brewster up front with Cameron Archer not expected back until the end of the month. Wilder’s one change is anticipated in the left wing-back position where Ben Osborn will replace Yasser Larouci.

4 2 3 1

Why change a winning formula?

Arsenal’s recent form has been exceptional and with long-term absentees Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko still not back to fitness, there is little reason for Mikel Arteta to attempt to change things. Jakub Kiwior will keep his spot at left-back having scored last weekend, whilst Kai Havertz will also continue as the striker.

SheffiELD uNITED vs aRSENAL Team Stats

Blades to be outgunned here

This could be a case of the Blades bringing a knife to a gunfight in this matchup with the Gunners. Chris Wilder’s side have now won just one of their last 10 league games and have shipped five goals at home for in each of their last three home games, twice to Brighton (once in the FA Cup), and to Aston Villa. Arsenal meanwhile have won their last three league games 4-1, 5-0 and 6-0 and there is every chance Arsenal dish out another humiliating home result for United. Over 3.5 goals sitting at 2.10 looks like great value considering the form of the respective sides.

Team Stats 4

Nice odds available on the corner markets

Arsenal are expected to dominate possession here, their 60.4% per game average being way above Sheffield United’s 36.5%. The Gunners have had the second-most corners in the league this season, their 7.58 per game average just behind Man City. Sheffield United meanwhile concede 7.27 corners per game, though their record at home is better. The corner match bet market provides little to no value, but the corner handicap market offers a nice price, with Arsenal available at 1.91 to win the corner battle with a -4 corner handicap. The three sides to beat this handicap at Bramall Lane this season are the only other sides to see 60%+ possession on average this season, Man City, Liverpool and Brighton, so Arsenal look like they have a great shot to do the same.

Team Stats 5

sHEFFIELD uNITED vs aRSENAL Shots and shots on target stats

James McAtee offers good value here

The Man City loanee is having a good season for the Blades, returning for a second season after helping them to promotion and an FA Cup semi-final last season. McAtee has been playing up front lately thanks to injuries, and his shooting numbers have spiked as a result. Averaging 1.20 shots per 90, McAtee has had at least one shot in seven of his last nine games for United, bagging four goals in that time. McAtee had a shot when these sides met at the Emirates and he can be backed here to take one or more shots at 1.40.

2 4

Kai Havertz the one to watch here

Havertz is expected to start as a striker in this one, the German having done so in three of the last five Arsenal games. During the month of February Havertz played four Premier League games, scoring twice and racking up five shots on target. He had at least one shot on target in each of the four league games Arsenal have played and when these sides met at the Emirates, the striker that day, Eddie Nketiah, had four shots, with three on target. All the signs suggest Havertz is likely to get a shot on target here, something he can be backed to do at odds of 1.36.

2 5

sHEFFIELD uNITED vs aRSENAL Goals and Assists Stats

Gustavo Hamer the best bet from a Blades perspective

In 2024, Hamer has started seven matches for United, scoring once and assisting twice. These numbers are by no means mind-blowing but it does represent Hamer’s best spell for the Blades. In a game in which they are heavy underdogs it seems likely that they will need a moment of magic to score here, and Hamer is best placed to provide it, with a lethal long shot and an eye for a pass on the counter-attack. Available at 4.33 to score or assist here, Hamer looks a solid longshot option here.

3 4

Back Saka to continue red-hot form

Saka has been unbelievable lately, having scored seven goals in his last five Premier League games. With it looking likely that the Gunners will run up the score here, Saka’s price on the goalscorer markets is a very tempting proposition, with the 22-year-old winger available at 2.20 to score anytime. Saka has taken 6, 3, 7, 2 and 4 shots in his last five league games, and that is unlikely to slow down here, with every chance that Saka could even reach the seven shot mark again, as he did against West Ham last month.

3 5

sHEFFIELD uNITED Cards and Fouls Stats

Bogle in for a long evening

Gabriel Martinelli will be the responsibility of Jayden Bogle here, the Brazilian drawing 1.12 fouls per 90 so far this season. Bogle meanwhile has committed 1.38 fouls per 90, one of five Sheffield United players all within 0.15 fouls per 90 of each other. Bogle has committed a foul in five of his last six starts for the Blades, committing two or more in three of these games. He can be backed to commit a foul here at 1.25, though considering that he committed five fouls in the reverse fixture, he is certainly worth a look to commit two or more fouls at odds of 2.30.

4 4

Nice value available on Gabriel

Gabriel draws plenty of fouls for a centre-back, winning 0.99 fouls per 90 so far this season. The Brazilian will be faced with Rhian Brewster who commits more fouls than any other Sheffield United player, at 1.47 per 90. Gabriel has won a foul in two of his last three games and in five of his last eight. He can be backed to win another foul here at a very solid price of 1.57.

5 4

aRSENAL Cards and Fouls Stats

Great value on Kiwior

The Arsenal man is usually a squad player but has seen a run of games recently, committing a foul in each of his four most recent starts. His foul record for these four games reads 2, 2, 5 and 1, which is especially notable as three of those came in big Arsenal wins which is what we anticipate happening here. Even in blowout victories, Kiwior is still committing fouls, so there is little reason to expect that will change here. He can be backed to commit a foul at 1.83, somewhat surprising considering his per game foul average since coming into the side against West Ham is sitting at 2.50.

4 5

McAtee Blades best hope for winning fouls

Only slightly behind Rhian Brewster (1.47) in fouls per 90 at 1.44, McAtee’s record is more impressive, having played around 5 times the minutes of Brewster this season. He has now been fouled in nine of his last 12 starts for Sheffield United, and he has been fouled three times in two starts as a striker, averaging 1.5 fouls per 90 in that position. He will be asked to hold the ball up and attempt to win free-kicks in dangerous situations to help his side manage this game, so backing him to be fouled twice here at 1.73 could be a nice value option.
