Published

on

ARSENAL travel to Bramall Lane in phenomenal form – but wouldn’t that just be football for bottom place Sheffield United to do the unthinkable?

The Gunners finally got revenge on Newcastle for their controversial VAR loss earlier this season with a 4-1 thrashing at the Emirates last Saturday.

Sheffield United are in trouble

And it was a result that meant Mikel Arteta’s men have now recorded SIX consecutive Premier League wins since the start of the calendar year.

Furthermore, Jakub Kiwior’s header on the weekend was Arsenal’s 25th strike since returning from their Dubai training camp in January, while the Blades have only scored 22 times all season.

But the Gunners showed signs that they can be got at in Europe and with the support of the home crowd, Sheffield United always stand a chance.
