Arsenal vs Sheffield United Preview
Although both sides fielded much changed lineups, Thursday’s 0-0 Carabao Cup draw with Liverpool offered a good example of the defensive transformation Mikel Arteta has brought to the team.
Having kept three clean sheets in their last five matches in all competitions, they will back themselves to keep quiet a Blades side that is yet to find the net in the league this campaign.
In fact, Sheffield United’s lacklustre scoring run extends back into last season and translates to a return of just one goal in six league matches.
