Arsenal will be looking for just their second away win of the season when they travel to face Sheffield United on Monday night.

Despite sitting third in the table, Arsenal have looked sluggish away from home and have only won at Newcastle on the road, a win which came on the opening weekend of the season.

A defeat to Liverpool and frustrating draws against Watford and Manchester United complete Arsenal's away league form so far in the campaign, and they now face a Sheffield United side looking for their first win in a month.

Chris Wilder's side were extremely unfortunate to emerge with nothing from their home game against Liverpool because of Dean Henderson's howler, before they drew at bottom side Watford last time out.

But while they have had mixed fortunes at home this season, they have also been impressive in patches and have taken points off the likes of Chelsea already this season.

Confirmed line-ups

Sheffield United: Henderson, Basham, Egan, O'Connell, Stevens, Norwood, Fleck, Lundstram, Baldock, Mousset, McGoldrick

Arsenal: Leno, Chambers, Sokratis, David Luiz, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Willock, Pepe, Saka, Aubameyang

Prediction - Sheffield United 1-1 Arsenal

Arsenal's last two Premier League away games have ended in score draws, and a similar fate could be in store for Unai Emery's men in Sheffield.

While they have managed to fathom victory out of nowhere at the Emirates, Emery's side have looked uninspiring for the majority of their games away from north London, except a brilliant first half not far from home at Watford.

Hope remains that Arsenal's play will improve at both ends of the field once Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney and Rob Holding return, but regardless of the 11 players to take the field Sheffield United will fancy their chances against a side won just once on the road in four attempts this season.

The Blades came agonisingly close to claiming a point against Liverpool, and having also held Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this season, they could increase their points tally on Monday night as well.
