Arsenal will be keen to get back to winning ways when they take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday night.

The Gunners were left devastated after conceding a stoppage time equaliser to draw 1-1 with Slavia Prague in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

That result now leaves qualification to the last-4 hanging in the balance and failure to beat Slavia next week would leave Arsenal facing no European football next season for the first time in 26 years.

Mikel Arteta’s men are currently sitting 11th in the Premier League table – seven points off the top six – with just eight games remaining so they are unlikely to qualify for Europe via the league.

Right now, no online casino or bookmaker is backing Arsenal to make the top six but they do have a good run-in on paper and a win on Sunday would keep their faint hopes alive that they could yet make a late push for the European places.

Sheffield United head into the game sitting rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table with just 14 points so Arsenal should be confident of getting the job done this weekend.

Betting odds

Arsenal are the 4/7 favourites at jeux casino to win the game tomorrow and that looks a decent bet considering how poor Sheffield United have been for most of the campaign.

However, Arsenal have struggled for consistency themselves so some punters may feel it’s worth backing the Blades to win on home soil at odds of 5/1 while the draw is also tempting at 29/10.

I think the Gunners will have too much quality in the end and a 2-1 away win looks a good bet at 7/1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be keen to make a point after being axed for the Slavia Prague game and he’s 10/3 to open the scoring on Sunday.

Saka rested?

Arsenal are expected to rest some of their key men for the Europa League second leg so Bukayo Saka may get a breather tomorrow. Gabriel and Thomas Partey are other players likely to be named on the bench for the visitors.

Emile Smith Rowe is a doubt with an ankle injury and with Martin Odegaard already ruled out of the trip to Bramall Lane, Arsenal could be lacking in option in the No.10 role.

David Luiz and Kieran Tierney have been ruled out for a few weeks with knee injuries but the likes of Dani Ceballos, Pablo Mari, Gabriel Martinelli and Nicolas Pepe are pushing for recalls.
