    So in theory, this should be fairly straight forward. Sheffield United are really looking decent this season but we're at home and seem to have a fresh approach about us under Mikel. He'll of had another full week to work with the squad so anything but a W will probably have a few question marks.

    In terms of suspensions and injuries, it's probably just Aubameyang, Torreira and Tierney who miss out. Hoping Lucas is fit but we've heard nothing yet.

    I'd line up with the exact same defence as we had vs Palace, a midfield then of Xhaka, Ceballos, Özil and forwards will be Martinelli, Lacazette and Pepe.

    Only change I can see from that would maybe be Guendouzi for Ceballos just based on fitness.

    Anyway I expect a win, 3-0 to the Arsenal.

    They are in pretty good form and will cause us problems. We’re conceding for fun and barely scoring and now Auba is out.

    2-1 to Sheffield Utd.

    This is tough even if at home Sheffield will keep defending deep and try to hit us either on counters with Auba is out it'll be more difficult for us to get goals need Pepe and Laca take responsibility.

    The reverse fixture was the first time this season I started to doubt that @GDeep™ prediction about Emery finishing above Ole and Lampard.

    1-1.Not type of game that we need atm.They're decent in defence and can be very tricky opponent.

    We're conceding less than 1 goal a game since Arteta took over.

    Please don't. Nobody wants Elneny. That midfield would probably be good enough for when Wrexham come visit us at the Emirates.

    ...Expecting Laca to emulate The King on Saturday, and destroy Sheffield United!

    Extremely well organized side. Does their basics very well. Table doesn't lie.

    I don't think we are going to create a lot of chances against a team like this. Key is to take every chance that comes along. And for that reason, Auba missing is going to be a huge factor. The rest of the forwards are far less incisive.

    I hope for a 1-0 win, but a draw is highly likely I feel.

    United is about to feel the wrath of Arteta. This might be the game where Laca will step up and be counted when it comes to scoring goals. 4-0 to the Arsenal. Obviously, I’m saying all this in vanity without acknowledging how well organized they have been this season. Oh well.
