Sheffield Utd v Arsenal – Gunners bankable on Monday Night Football



Sheffield United host Arsenal for the first time since December 2006 on Monday night.

The Gunners stumbled into third-place last weekend, as their chaotic and highly-disorganised style seems to have not caused them any serious harm as of yet.

The Blades, meanwhile, find themselves unbelievably level with Manchester United after eight games played. They have nine points, sitting nicely in thirteenth.

A real coup is yet to come for Chris Wilder’s men this season. There is no denying that it will most definitely come soon though. United are available on a double chance to win or draw at 4/5 here.

They will no doubt take the game to an Arsenal side who are no less than fragile and porous off-the-ball. Unai Emery’s men are 10/11 to win this, though a clean sheet is not guaranteed whenever they take to the field this year.

A Gunners win, but with both teams to score, is 5/2. United may have only netted seven in the league so far but what better time to up that tally then against one of the big sides at home on a Monday night?

This could turn out to be a pretty feisty encounter. For all Sheffield United’s innovative tactics, they are still a pretty physical side. Arsenal are a team that can be easily wound-up, not least with the likes of Granit Xhaka and David Luiz in their ranks. It is 7/2 for a red card to be shown and 2/1 for a penalty to be given.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was announced as Premier League Player of the Month for September however. The Gabonese striker netted five last month and is 10/11 to score anytime here.

The last time these two met thirteen years ago, the Blades ran-out shock 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from Christian Nade. An upset here does not look completely unlikely and you can get the hosts to win by that very same score line at 14/1.
