Sheffield United vs Arsenal LIVE: Kick-off time, TV channel, team news, live stream details

Hello and welcome to football.london’s live blog covering Arsenal’s Premier League match with Sheffield United from Bramall Lane. The Gunners are hoping to continue their fine form and repeat their 5-0 win from earlier in the season.

Should they repeat the scoreline, they will reach 30 goals scored in seven games, quite the achievement whilst scoring two in the first half will represent an eighth straight half to have done so. Goal difference could indeed be valuable come the end of the season so more the merrier.

Mikel Arteta could welcome back several players to his squad with Thomas Partey, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Takehiro Tomiyasu in contention. Gabriel Jesus is vying to make his first appearance since the away trip to Nottingham Forest too.

A win would take the Gunners back to within striking distance of Liverpool following their controversial win at the City Ground on Saturday. Arsenal know winning here and next Saturday against Brentford will see them top the league before Manchester City and the Reds face off the following day.

Sheffield United are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table and will put up a stern test. Tom Canton and Kaya Kaynak will be bringing all the build-up, match coverage and commentary from Bramall Lane, with updates to follow.

Arteta’s unlikely undroppable
Mikel Arteta will be hoping his Arsenal side can continue their impressive recent goal-scoring form in the upcoming clash against Sheffield United. From their last six Premier League games, the Gunners have scored 25 goals with Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Leandro Trossard and Kai Havertz among those finding the back of the net.

To further the likelihood of another dominant win for Arsenal, Sheffield United have conceded five goals in each of their last three home games. In the reverse fixture, the north Londoners also put five past the Blades with Takehiro Tomiyasu and Fabio Vieira on target after Eddie Nketiah bagged a wonderful hat-trick.

“For me, he’s top level,” Arteta said on the striker back in November after the 5-0 victory. “He’s played… I think he has started eight out of the 10 Premier League games. So that tells you how much we trust them, how much I trust him and the importance that he has in the team.

a session before the last game and now he’s done two or three consecutive sessions,” Arteta admitted last Thursday in a press conference. “He should be part of the squad on Monday.”

Barring any setbacks, based on Arteta’s comments, Partey will be involved in a matchday squad for the first time in nearly five months. Elsewhere, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Oleksandr Zinchenko appear further back in their recovery with the duo not seen in the latest set of training pictures and Arteta’s update did not indicate a return is on the horizon.
