Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Sheffield

Arsenal will be eyeing a seventh straight Premier League win when they face Sheffield United on the road tonight.

The Gunners have been in sensational form since the start of the year and they have scored 25 goals and conceded just three.

Mikel Arteta will be eyeing another resounding win at Bramall Lane.

Predicted Line-up:

David Raya has been a constant in goal for the Gunners and he is expected to keep his place against the Blades. He is however due to miss the Brentford game as he won't be eligible to face his parent club.

In defence, it should be the same back four. Ben White and Jakub Kiwior are set to continue in the full-back positions with William Saliba partnering Gabriel Magalhaes at the heart of the backline.

Jorginho stood out with another solid midfield display versus Newcastle United last weekend, but he is likely to be replaced by Emile Smith Rowe as Arteta may play just one defensive midfielder.

Smith Rowe assisted a goal in the reverse fixture between the clubs. The Gunners graduate is expected to be partnered by Declan Rice, who has been ever-present in the centre of the park this term.

Further forward, no changes are on the cards. Bukayo Saka has been in the form of his life with seven goals in the last five top-flight outings. He will start on the left wing with Gabriel Martinelli on the right.

Martin Odegaard should feature in his customary number 10 role with Kai Havertz leading the line ahead of Gabriel Jesus and Leandro Trossard. The German has scored in successive league games.

Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Rice, Smith Rowe; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Havertz.
