Sheffield United vs Arsenal Prediction
The hosting team is not so bright when it comes to home matches. They have lost four out of the last five home ties in their schedule. And they lost the last three home matches in the same 0-1 score to the likes of Southampton, Sunderland and lately Liverpool. Their previous victory at home was in August this year against the Rovers.
In contrast, the traveling side has lost just one of their prior five clashes away from home. Even though they have only two wins in it, their previous match was drawn to the likes of the Red Devils at Old Trafford. Unai Emery and his men will be hoping to carry forward their three-game unbeaten run in the away fixtures.
On behalf of the current league, the Blades have registered only two wins in the eight league clashes so far while losing three in the process. The Gunners, on the other hand, has 4 wins and a single loss in their eight league encounters in this season. Also, the visitors are unbeaten in the league for the past five games.
Besides that, the host has lost three consecutive league home matches lately. In the meantime, the Gunners hold one win in the four away fixtures with an unbeaten streak in the last two games which were drawn in the end. Hence, considering the stats, the clear favorites of the bout are Emery and his boys. Henceforth, the match will be probably won by the visiting side with the striker, Aubameyang, slotting in a goal for the team.
Apart from that, the light falls on the Gabon striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has already scored 7 goals in the Premier League in this season. Arsenal squad has scored 13 goals overall in this season and more than half was contributed by the young striker. So, there are chances that he will likely see the back of the net in the game.
