Following a fruitful Champions League stint in Sevilla, Arsenal will make their Premier League return on Saturday, October 29th when bottom side Sheffield United travel to the Emirates Stadium. During the club’s most recent European match, Mikel Arteta’s team defeated Sevilla 2-1 in the Champions League, while Sheffield United fell to Manchester United in the Premier League this past weekend by an identical scoreline.
Despite not yet routinely putting up the sort of displays witnessed for the duration of the previous campaign, the Gunners have started the Premier League season undefeated, and they have shown resilience. Mikel Arteta is hoping that his tenacity is not called upon this coming weekend as he takes on Sheffield United, who are currently at the bottom of the standings after picking up just a single point from their first 9 League games.
The Gunners are hoping to post back-to-back home clean sheets for the first occasion in the league since December 2021 following their 1-0 victory over Man City prior to the international break. They enter the weekend’s games in 3rd place, tied on points alongside Man City who are in 2nd and just 2 points from the leading Tottenham.
Sheffield United, along with Bournemouth, are the only teams still without a victory so far this season. They have lost 5 straight games, including the embarrassing 8-0 loss to Newcastle United at home. This weekend doesn’t get any simpler for the visitors as they go to Arsenal, who haven’t lost their past 18 home matches against them and their previous 36 Premier League home matches versus promoted teams.
Gabriel Jesus might not be able to play against Sheffield United at Arsenal because of an injury and long-term absentee Jurrien Timber is still not back.
Sheffield United’s Anel Ahmedhodzic, John Egan, and Chris Basham will all be out for some time. Tom Davies, Max Lowe, Daniel Jebbison, and Rhys Norrington-Davies are still out. It is probably too early for William Osula, George Baldock, and Oli McBurnie to travel to north London.
