Sheffield United Bramall Lane

Title chasers Arsenal travel to Championship-bound Sheffield United on Monday night, with kick-off at 20:00 at Bramall Lane on Sky Sports Main Event.

The Blades are in the doldrums, having picked up just 13 points all season, with one win in their last 10 league outings. Meanwhile, Arsenal can’t stop scoring in the Premier League, notching 18 times in their last four games. 

Both sides, despite being at opposite ends of the table, are in desperate needs of points on Monday night. Another heavy defeat for the hosts could spell curtains for their short stint in the Premier League, while if Arsenal slip up against relegation candidates, it will be considered a huge blow to their title chances. Below we’ve put forward our Sheff Utd vs Arsenal Bet Builder Tips.

Arsenal to win and over 2.5 goals

How can you not fancy Arsenal’s chances heading into this one? They are in flying goalscoring form, have been tearing apart teams at will and have the second-best away record in the league. They’ve scored the joint-most goals on the road (28), including six at West Ham and five at Burnley in their last two away league games. 

Mikel Arteta looks to have got his side firing on all cylinders and with Kai Havertz and Martin Odegaard as the most attacking central midfielders, they have goalscoring options from all over the park. Unfortunately for Sheffield United and their leaky defence, I can see another long afternoon unfolding at Bramall Lane. 

The Blades have conceded five goals in each of their last three home games, against Brighton (twice) and Aston Villa. The Gunners are a level above either of those teams and should have a field day against Chris Wilder’s men. 

Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz to score

Picking out a couple of Arsenal goalscorers feels like the right way to boost our odds. In recent weeks, Arteta has chosen to play Bukayo Saka, Havertz, Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli as a front four - with the two advanced midfielders forming a box in the middle of the park. 

With both Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah unconvincing in the number nine role, the Gunners are having more success without a natural striker. Instead, the smart movement of Havertz and Odegaard is causing chaos for opposition defences. We’ve picked out the German to find the net given his advanced role, along with Arsenal’s top scorer and designated penalty taker, Saka. 

Gustavo Hamer to be carded

Sheffield United are likely to get stuck in here, in an attempt to frustrate an Arsenal side who are clear of them in terms of quality. What we can expect is several niggly fouls in midfield, from the likes of Vini Souza and Gustavo Hamer. 

Given he has already picked up eight yellows this season, and was known for his ill-discipline at Coventry City, we’ve backed Hamer to pick up another yellow here. These picks give us a tasty 9/1 Bet Builder
