Mikel Arteta news

Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Sheffield United


Arsenal will be aiming to return to winning ways when they face Sheffield United in the Premier League tomorrow.

The Gunners are winless in the last four games in all competitions, and manager Mikel Arteta will be hoping for a strong response from his players.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Bernd Leno remains the club’s undisputed choice in goal and he is expected to start between the sticks ahead of Mat Ryan.

The backline may see a few changes. Calum Chambers could reclaim his right-back role from Hector Bellerin.

Gabriel has had a couple of tough games after the international break, and he may be replaced by Pablo Mari in the central defence.

There could be a complete reshuffle in midfield with Mohamed Elneny and Dani Ceballos replacing Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka.

Partey and Xhaka could be rested with a view to the return leg of the Europa League quarter-final tie against Slavia.

In the attack, Nicolas Pepe may feature on the right wing after scoring off the bench in the midweek 1-1 draw.

Emile Smith Rowe is doubtful for the game with an ankle concern, but we fancy him to make the starting XI.

He could feature in the number 10 position ahead of Martin Odegaard, who is also nursing a minor knee injury.

On the opposite flank, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be in line for a start after being dropped to the bench against Slavia.

Elsewhere, Gabriel Martinelli could earn his fourth league start of the campaign. We are backing him to lead the line against the Blades tomorrow.

Predicted Arsenal line-up: Leno; Chambers, Holding, Mari, Cedric; Elneny, Ceballos; Pepe, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang; Martinelli.
