The Gunners will be looking to continue their positive run as they confront newly-promoted Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Arsenal is undefeated in its last eight games in all competitions, which includes five games in the Premier League as well. Sheffield, on the other end, finds itself at the 15th spot and is struggling to find momentum.
Date- Tuesday, October 22 | Kick-Off- 12:30 AM (IST) | Venue- Bramall Lane
John Fleck sustained a knock during the international break and will have to undergo a fitness test prior to the game. Meanwhile, Oliver McBurnie is doubtful too due to an issue to the knee. David McGoldrick could be given a spot on the bench as the forwards seem to have gradually overcome his groin issue.
Reiss Nelson will be unavailable due to a bad knee. However, the good news is, that Alexandre Lacazette is on course to return to the team sheet since September. The French forward is likely to partner along star-player Pierre Emrick Aubameyang, while Kieran Tierney could make finally get to make his debut at left-back in the Premier League. Hector Bellarin is fit again and should battle for a spot at right-back with Callum Chambers. With that being said, Unai Emery might go with the same eleven which went out against Bournemouth.
Sheffield United: Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Fleck, Stevens; McBurnie, Robinson
Arsenal: Leno; Chambers, Sokratis, Luiz, Tierney; Guendouzi, Xhaka; Aubameyang, Ceballos, Pepe; Lacazette
The last time the two teams faced one another was way back in 2008. It was Arsenal who registered a thumping 6-0 win under Arsene Wenger that evening.
Arsenal has kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven games against Sheffield in all competitions.
Sheffield United is on the back of three consecutive defeats at home.
Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang should be expected to get his name on the scoresheet once again. The Gabonese international has scored seven goals in eight appearances for Arsenal.
For Sheffield United, John Lundstram could prove to play a major part from central midfield. The 25-year-old has scored a goal and has an assist this season and can lead to a transition from defence to attack versus Arsenal.
