2 min read

Blades boss Chris Wilder makes just one change from the team that beat West Ham 1-0 last time out. Mousset starts up front alongside McBurnie in place of the injured David McGoldrick, who is Sheffield United’s only unavailable player at present.

Mikel Arteta makes three enforced changes from the Arsenal side that drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace in their last outing. Sokratis Papastathopoulos is ill, Sead Kolasinac is injured and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang serves the first game of his three-match ban. They are replaced in the lineup by Mustafi, Saka and Martinelli, respectively. Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers remain sidelined as they recover from serious injuries.

Sheffield United substitutes: Michael Verrips, Billy Sharp, Callum Robinson, Ben Osborn, Kieron Freeman, Phil Jagielka, Muhamed Besic.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Dean Henderson; Chris Basham, John Egan, Jack O’Connell; George Baldock, John Lundstram, Oliver Norwood, John Fleck, Enda Stevens; Oliver McBurnie, Lys Mousset.

Arsenal substitutes: Emiliano Martinez, Eddie Nketiah, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Matteo Guendouzi, Dani Ceballos, Joe Willock.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz, Bukayo Saka; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka; Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil, Gabriel Martinelli; Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal are in real need of a win as the gap between themselves and the top four continues to grow. However, they face a Sheffield United side who have had an impressive season so far and sit four points ahead of the Gunners in sixth.
