SHF Vs ARS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two sides stuttering in the league turn to the FA Cup to forage semblance
Returning to the land of the Premier League after a hiatus of three months, the biggest question was if Sheffield United would be able to emulate their electric touch from back in March. And the hiatus has done them absolutely no favours with the break in the side’s momentum turning out to be a downside to their season.
Whilst they were unlucky to draw 0-0 in their first encounter in three months, the ensuing 3-0 trashing at the hands of Manchester United a tough and bitter result to digest. Gone was the side’s stern and stringent defence with the side doling out a lacklustre and ice cold performance, one hardly telling of their overall story this season.
“I have done a lot of thinking over the last week or 10 days. It hurts, we didn’t want to restart in the manner we have done, but we have done, so I have to try and affect that and find out and get the answers from somewhere and I will look as deep as I possibly can. “It’s still significant, a chance to win a football match, that’s how I am approaching it, “said Sheffield United’s manager, Wilder when talking about the need for his side to wrench out of their impasse.
Where Sheffield United are struggling to arrest their tanking form, Arsenal on the other hand managed to do exactly that against Southampton. The 2-0 win was a much needed result for a side being berated for its complete inability to compete on the pitch.
Also, with the home side currently waning in form, Arsenal make an advent into the encounter with a fair shot of pulling off a win. However, Sheffield United have hardly failed on such repeated occasions in the season with the side set to make a true today and see this one halt in a 0-0 draw.

SHF Vs ARS Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Handed over a chance to finally show his skill set between the sticks, Emiliano Martinez showed why he’s than capable of taking over the spot left by Leno. He pulled off a steady show against Southampton the last time around, withstanding an onslaught to se us make him our goal-keeper for the day.
SHF Vs ARS Dream11 Defenders
Sheffield United might have opened up and allowed themselves to be pumped across the last couple of encounters defensively but it’s not what their true identity is. This is one of the most sublime backlines, a team’s whose entire consummate success has been laid on the foundations of their stern defence.
And we envision them reverting to those stringent ways today to pull off a cleansheet from the affair. It’s a discourse which sees us repose faith in George Baldock who has the four assists, Chris Basham and John Egan from the side.
On the other hand, it’s just the one pick for us from Arsenal with Ainsely Maitland-Niles making a way into our docket owing to the attacking shot in the arm he’s capable of providing.
SHF Vs ARS Dream11 Midfielders
In a tie where both the sides are set to heavily chop and toy with their playing 11, two names emerge as indispensable for Arsenal. The first is of CDM Granit Xhaka who has managed to emerge as a ruler of the blind this season, a player plying his traits in such an abysmal side that even he’s been able to have made a telling difference in the side.
The other one is of Bukayo Saka, a player who unlike Xhaka has worked his way to earn his spot in Arsenal’s playing 11. A diminutive and indomitable name, Saka has emerged as a true gem for Arsenal this season with his versatility serving the side fruitfully.
Sheffield United on the other hand will see Oliver Norwood be inducted into our side with the player being asked to control play and transition the ball from defence to attack today. Luke Freeman joins him up as we opt for an akin partnership from the home side.
SHF Vs ARS Dream11 Strikers
While his selection today is a little bit in the balance, Arsenal’s leading scorer is someone we just couldn’t leave out. The 17 goal man has spearheaded his side’s charge to see us make Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang the first pick from the side.
After scoring for the side in the bygone encounter, Eddie Nketiah comes in as well to close out our Dream 11 tie for the affair.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The dual toned skill set imbued in him makes Baldock our captain for today while Ainsley is the vice-captain.
