Arsenal host Sheffield United in the Premier League on Sunday, with the Gunners chasing a return to winning ways in the league after losing 3-1 to Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.

Arsenal were in the lead midway through the first half in that game, but goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota ensured the champions remained perfect at the start of the season.

Sheffield United are yet to score a league goal this season, but have only conceded four in three games. They were desperately unlucky to lose their last game against Leeds, as a late Patrick Bamford winner sunk the Blades in the Yorkshire derby.

Arsenal v Sheffield United Prediction

Sheffield United have endured a torrid start to their season, and are just not getting enough goals to be winning Premier League games.

The uncertainty with the personnel in their defence has been a massive factor for the Blades' poor form as well.

For Arsenal, they will look to bounce back from the loss at Anfield on Monday night, to return to winning ways in the Premier League, and we predict that the Gunners will do just that.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Sheffield United
