Arsenal so far have lost only a single game in the Premier League and next up they travel to Bramall Lane in order to take on Sheffield United.

The Blades are currently sitting 13th on the league table managing to pick up just nine points from their first 8 matches which theoretically means the Gunners should have an easy night out on Monday.

But what many people are claiming that Sheffield United have been able to find a new gear when they play against the big sides which is why Unai Emery shouldn’t be taking this match lightly.

While Sheffield could cause major headaches to Arsenal but according to BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson, the Gunners should be able to nick this one simply because the Blades have not been at their best at Bramall Lane.

Lawrenson wrote for the BBC: “Sheffield United have picked up six points away so far, compared to three at home.

“They like to play on the front foot and it feels like that is working out better for them on the road, especially against the tougher teams.

“This might be a similar story. Arsenal appear to be improving at both ends of the pitch and I just have a feeling they will edge this one.”

Apart from the home and away factor, Unai Emery also has an almost fit squad at his disposal.

Apart from Lacazette and Reiss Nelson no other first-team regular is injured which means the manager has the luxury of not only naming his best XI vs Sheffield United but also making the appropriate changes.
