Arsenal takes on a road trip to search for their first win in a month as they take on bottom side Sheffield United in the Premier League. The match schedules for Sunday at Bramall Lane, with kickoff at 9 pm.
The Gunners have gone four matches without a win in all competitions and need a quick response against the division’s bottom side. On the other hand, Sheffield United have gone three losses since their last win against Aston Villa.
Arsenal’s season so far can be summed up in the last ten minutes of Thursday’s 1-1 draw in the Europa League quarter-finals against Slavia Prague. It took Nicolas Pepe’s efforts off the bench to equalize for the Gunners after a lacklustre performance.
Only one minute remained before the last minute whistle when Arsenal conceded from a corner to give their opponents an important away goal ahead of the second leg. Finishing for a European spot remains out of the Gunners’ question following a draw to West Ham and defeat to Liverpool.
On the other hand, Sheffield United came to terms with new life in the Championship next season. However, the relegation battle is not yet confirmed, but the fifth loss at home will seal the coffin’s final nail. The side holds the record for the lowest scoring side with only 17 goals in 30 Premier League games.
