Sheffield United v Arsenal Build-up & Predicted Score

Arsenal will make the trip up to Bramall Lane for tonight’s Premier League encounter with Sheffield United.

The Gunners have slipped down to 11th in the Premier League table after Leeds victory over Premier League leaders Manchester City yesterday, but a win will see us rise back into ninth.

Our opponents are enduring a much worse season however, having picked up points in only 20% of their matches, which has left them sitting bottom of the table and destined for the drop.

The Blades are in need of a miracle to survive with 18 points an 18-point gap from safety with only eight matches remaining. They could even be confirmed as dropping out the top division as early as next week.

United come into the clash on the back of three straight defeats, but Arsenal are also without a win in any of their last four matches, but surely today will end that.

The Gunners have a clear advantage in personnel, and despite our struggles of late, we were unlucky not to win against Slavia Prague on Thursday night, and a similar level of play today will surely see us collect the three points.

I expect Arsenal to come away with a nice 3-1 win tonight, hopefully with a goal from Gabriel Martinelli who should be in contention to make his first PL start since January 30.

What are your early predictions for tonight’s clash?

    1. Declan says:

      Hammers thrashing Leicester 3-0 at present in 48th min!
      Not changing my prediction for us, lose 0-2 tonight and win 2-0 Thursday.

      1. PJ-SA says:

        All over them

      2. Sue says:

        They haven’t missed Ogbonna or Rice… fair play to them (& Moyes).. and I wouldn’t mind taking Rice off their hands!

        1. Lenohappy says:

          And Antonio too is injured.

  2. Innit says:

    I’m only concerned with the Arsenal match TBH

    3-1 to Arsenal

    COYG

  3. MartinelliTheBench says:

    Play all our youngsters, get them experience while we have the games to use.

    What do we have to lose? Older players will be leaving in a year or 2 and they have under performed.

  4. Lenohappy says:

    David Moyes returned to west ham in December 2019. He inherited a side sitting in 17th- 1 point clear of the relegation zone. 16 months later they find themselves in the top4 with 7 games remaining, if the win this match there will be 1point between them and third. They’ve spent £35.3m net in that time. Now that’s what you call a rebuild.

    1. Lenohappy says:

      But let’s trust the process that has taken us to 10th on the league. In Arteta we trust.

    2. Chapo says:

      Credit to Moyes, took West Ham from relegation zone to Champions League contenders within 16 months. Meanwhile Arteta seems to be doing the opposite. But who are we to question, let’s trust the process blindly and maybe we’ll finally have our sights back when we hit relegation.

      1. Lenohappy says:

        Chapo trust the process bro.

    3. Sue says:

      Damn right it is, Lenohappy. I’m happy for them and not just because half of my family are hammers 😄

      1. Lenohappy says:

        Sue trust the process ma’am.

  5. Lord Denning says:

    Today’s game and then l remaining epl games are pointless,the only motivation is to regroup under a top experienced manager next season,it’s just a few months away.If the the Kreonke doesn’t make the necessary changes Arsenal will continue to make record losses, this will not be sustainable for long and will be a let down to the supporters.Radical surgery is what is needed,this team can’t win the europa they are demotivated and scared like the rookie coach.

    1. Lenohappy says:

      Lord Denning have said it before and I will say it again, this team is good enough to compete for top4, we are underachieving under this coach. Nobody should tell me that West ham or Leicester have a better team than us, have always supported Arteta but enough is enough, how can west ham be challenging for top4 but we are in 10?

      1. Chapo says:

        Oh yes they have, can’t you see? Iheanacho is better than Lacazette, Auba doesn’t come close to Vardy, Ogbonna miles ahead of Luiz, Cresswell over Tierny anytime anyday you know. Moyes and Rodgers both got £250mil each, so give Arteta £500mil and 10years, he might be able to do the job then.

    2. Grandad says:

      LD, apart from your proposed sacking of Arteta, what does your “radical surgery” actually entail in respect of our current player pool and what top, experienced Manager do you suggest we recruit?

      1. MartinelliTheBench says:

        I was hoping for Tuchel….too late now(like usual)

        1. ozziegunner says:

          Tuchel’s record at PSG was not as good as Emery’s, yet Emery was apparently a failure there to some.

      2. Mobella says:

        Westham is using the same core of players that had them in relegation zone. Maybe we haven’t got right with the choice of coach we employed. Like it has been said above Leicester and hammers don’t have better squad than ours.

  6. Danny says:

    Hopefully a Sheffield United win and we can finally see the back of that clown Arteta!

    1. Declan says:

      Losing today won’t get Arteta sacked, we’ve got a shit or bust game Thursday, are you really that naive?

  7. Awida says:

    thursday game wil decide the future of arteta, i.e concern over losing dressing room(the athlentic)
