🔮 Sheffield United vs Arsenal: Our predicted starting XIs

It's been 15 days since Arsenal's last match, a 1-0 success against Bournemouth before the international break.

How do we expect them to line up tonight against Sheffield United and how will the Blades line up against the Gunners, having failed to score in four of their last five matches?

🗡 Sheffield United (3-5-2)

Henderson; Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; Robinson, Sharp

🔴 Arsenal (4-2-3-1)

Leno; Chambers, Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Xhaka, Guendouzi; Pépé, Ceballos, Saka; Aubameyang

Returning fullbacks Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney are both pushing for starts, as is centre back Rob Holding, who may come into the side at Sokratis' expense. At the base of midfield, it's likely that skipper Granit Xhaka will continue alongside impressive 20-year-old Frenchman Matteo Guendouzi, who was recently nominated for the 2019 Golden Boy award. 

Unai Emery will stick with 18-year-old winger Bukayo Saka on the left, while goal-machine Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the line. Dani Ceballos might get a creative role behind Aubameyang, beside Nicolas Pépé. Mesut Özil is back in contention and will be in the matchday 18. Alex Lacazette is also being assessed and could be involved in some capacity after missing seven matches through injury.
