ARS vs SHF Dream11 : Arsenal come up against a resolute and resilient Sheffield United side today as they look to maintain their spot in the top 4
Culminating encounter of gameweek 9 in the Premier League sees Arsenal go to Sheffield United in a bid to come back into the top 4 after being shunted out of it by Chelsea who displaced them with a win over Newcastle United. Currently the one point behind Chelsea, the visiting side will be well aware that nothing less than a win would do for them if they are to continue making massive strides in the league.
And although they are going at loggerheads against Sheffield United, Arsenal will do well to know that they can’t treat this encounter lightly. Sheffield United might not pose the biggest of threats to them on the attacking font but the side are more than well versed when it comes to their defensive setup, a side which has been extremely disciplined, cohesive, responsible and sturdy infront of big teams in the league till now.
It was a narrative which was brought to light against Liverpool, a match which the hosts looked set to atleast pull out a draw from before a horrendous mistake by their goal-keeper ended up gifting them a goal to Liverpool. They’ll be looking to emote the same display come Arsenal today, one which can embroiled the visitors in a frantic and frenetic clash, leaving them flummoxed on how to break past a backline which is going to stand firm infront of everything Arsenal try to fabricate.
Also with Arsenal known for their defensive vulnerabilities, the home side carry their own threat of a goal as well on the counterattack, something which could see them pull off a stunning result today. This clash is anything from a foregone encounter, a tie which will require Arsenal to dwell deep into their pool of resource and show the acumen needed to pull off a result against a side filled with a bagful of tricks.

ARS vs SHF Dream11 Goal-Keeper
He might have committed a huge blunder against Liverpool, but apart from that, the hosts’ goal-keeper has been a relatively safe pair of hands. In Dean Henderson, the side have an astute goal-keeper, one whose displays and saves have augured well for the side, someone who looks set to leave Arsenal in angst today.
ARS vs SHF Dream11 Defenders
Arsenal’s new signing Kieran Tierney has yet to play a match in the Premier League for his side after recovering from an injury but this looks set to be an encounter where the leftback should finally get hs first outing for the side. The defender has impressed in the Carabao Cup with his attacking displays, someone who has delivered good passes and crosses for the side, making him someone who can easily snap a goal or assist today.
We are getting in David Luiz as well from the side while from the home side we are getting in both their fullbacks in the form of Enda Stevens and George Baldock. The two encapsulate their affinity to step up to the mantle and deliver in both the attacking and defensive segments for their side given their enterprising brand of football which has seen them grow in stature this season.
ARS vs SHF Dream11 Midfielders
We begin with Jon Lundstram, someone who has been one of the most impressive players for his side this season. The defender has been shifted up into the CDM position given his ability to snare off tackles and blocks at will and leave attacking players miffed by curbing their attempts to pull off passes.
From arsenal meanwhile we are choosing the two players over here with Bukayo Saka coming in for us today after his good displays in the bygone Carabao Cup matches which have seen him earn spot in the Premier League. Dani Ceballos has slowly been made a regular in the CAM role for his side with Emery making it clear that he finds no place for Mesut Ozil in the side, seeing us pick out the player on loan from Real Madrid as well.
ARS vs SHF Dream11 Strikers
The team’s leading goal scorer with 7 goals, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was always going to be selected by us for today’s encounter with the striker holding the best threat for Arsenal when it comes to crafting together a goal. The side should have Alexander Lacazette back as well after a long hiatus, seeing us opt for him as well while from Sheffield United we are opting for Callum Robinson as our solitary pick.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are making Aubameyang our side’s captain for today while Ceballos comes in as the vice-captain.
