Arsenal

At 10th place in the Premier League table, Arsenal (6-9-6 win-draw-loss, 27 points) look to catch up with their rivals and keep their hopes alive for a top-four finish. Their 2-0 victory over Manchester United gave the Gunners valuable points to keep in step with the leaders and provided a confidence-booster for new head coach Mikel Arteta.

They conjured Man Utd’s four corner kicks and four shots on goal to emerge victorious thanks to first-half goals by Nicolas Pepe and Sokratis Papastathopoulos. A victory over Sheffield United will give Arsenal a morale-lifting triumph. It will also improve their chances for a UEFA Champions League berth. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will still be the talisman for the Gunners with 13 goals scored during the season.

Players to Watch:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (13 goals, 1 assist); Alexander Lacazette (5 G, 1 A); Nicolas Pepe (3 G, 3 A); David Luiz (2 G); Sokratis Papastathopoulos (2 G).

Sheffield United

Sheffield United (8-8-6 win-draw-loss, 32 points) surged to fifth place in the Premier League table with a victory over West Ham United. The team had three shots on goal and seven corner kicks won against West Ham. In the 53rd minute, Sheffield United hit paydirt when Oliver McBurnie tapped a home goal. Also, there was a mix-up between West Ham teammates David Martin and Fabian Balbuena.

The Blades survived a stoppage-time equalizer attempt by Robert Snodgrass. Declan Rice was caught handling the ball during the build-up. As a result, the video assistant referee nullified the conversion. The victory helped Sheffield United move four points off fourth-running Chelsea with 16 games remaining. The top four teams will qualify outright in the 2020 UEFA Champions League group stages.

Players to Watch:

Lys Mousset (5 goals, 3 assists); John Fleck (4 G, 2 A); Oliver McBurnie (4 G); John Lundstram (3 G, 2 A); George Baldock (2 G, 3 A).
