Robbie Savage has predicted Arsenal to struggle against Sheffield United in the Premier League.
The Gunners travel to Brammall Lane on Monday night to face Chris Wilder’s side, who have proved to be a nuisance for many of the big teams so far this season.
They fell to a narrow defeat against Liverpool and came back from two goals down to secure a famous draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier in the campaign.
Savage predicts that the game will end in a 1-1 draw. As stated in his column for the Mirror, he believes that it will prove to be a “tricky” encounter for Unai Emery’s men.
Could he be right?
READ ARSENAL VERDICT
Arsenal fans won’t be pleased with Savage expecting a 1-1 draw for the Gunners.
However, he definitely has a point about the match being a tricky test. Wilder’s team is well-organised and are also dangerous going forward, so the Gunners will need to take this game very seriously.
Arsenal needs to start the game with intensity and attacking intent and if they can manage an early goal, then that will massively unsettle Wilder’s entire gameplan.
This is a game that Emery’s men could make a statement of intent in their quest for a top-four finish.
