Pundits make their predictions on Sheff Utd v Arsenal match
The Premier League is back tomorrow after another international break and it could not have returned any sooner.
The international break is required and I understand that but it really is a boring period. Now, we can focus on club football for the next few months.
On Monday evening Arsenal travel to Bramall Lane and some of the pundits have already made their predictions.
Former Liverpool star Mark Lawrenson in his weekly BBC prediction battle with a guest has gone with an Arsenal win. Lawro is predicting a clean sheet with the Gunners running out 2-0 winners.
Former Gunner Charlie Nicholas is going with a goal feast, the Sky Sports pundit reckons Arsenal will emerge 3-2 winners. In better words, the defence will be porous and the strikers prolific. That sounds familiar.
Michael Owen takes a different point of view, according to the former Liverpool hitman it will be a draw. As usual, he gives no score prediction but reckons United will take points off Arsenal on Monday evening.
The utterly useless BT Supercomputer also predicts a draw and gives a scoreline. A ridiculous 4-4 draw I kid you not. That said, it would not be the biggest surprise in football if we saw that outcome.
So, two go for an Arsenal win and two go for a draw which I must admit I find slightly surprising. Arsenal really should be beating promoted teams. I understand there are no easy games anymore but even so, if you cannot beat a team like Sheff Utd then you will struggle to finish top-four.
