Sheffield Utd vs Arsenal: Top free betting tips

Sheffield United's Premier League misery is set to continue on Monday, 4 March when they welcome Arsenal to Bramall Lane. The Blades are effectively relegated at this point and plans are probably already being made about how they are going to get back out of the Championship next season. For Arsenal, this match represents an opportunity to continue their winning streak and to add more goals to their goal difference. Ahead of the match, check out our Sheffield Utd vs Arsenal prediction below.

Match handicap prediction: Arsenal -2

Arsenal have been incredible recently, swatting away every team they've played in the Premier League. The Gunners are currently on a six-match winning streak which has included two 5-0 victories, a 6-0 and a 4-1. They are the most in-form team in the league and they are set to play a side who have conceded more goals than any other side this season and who are on course to break the Premier League record for the most shots faced. This could be a massacre.

Arsenal to keep a clean sheet: Yes

Arsenal haven't just been emphatic in attacking areas in 2024 but they have also been hugely impressive defensively. They have conceded just three goals in their six-match winning streak and have conceded fewer goals than any other side in the Premier League all season. On the flip side, Sheffield United have scored fewer goals than any other side this season which makes it difficult to imagine the Blades getting on the scoresheet on Monday night.

Correct score prediction: Sheffield Utd 0-6 Arsenal

Sheffield United have experienced some humiliating results at home this season, including an 8-0 loss to Newcastle, a 5-0 loss to Aston Villa and a 5-0 loss to Brighton. They also lost 5-0 to Arsenal in the reverse fixture at the Emirates so to say they have scars is an understatement. We would be surprised if Arsenal don't score five or six again here.

Thomas Partey is ready to play again after a long injury layoff and Gabriel Jesus is expected to start after returning to the squad last weekend against Newcastle. Tomiyasu is another player who has a chance of being involved on Monday with Arteta saying the Japenese full-back will have to prove himself over the weekend.
