Sheffield United v Arsenal team news with 10 ruled out and doubts over five

Sheffield United and Arsenal will both have players missing when they lock horns at Bramall Lane.

The Blades sit rock-bottom of the Premier League and although their performances have been below par, they have had plenty of absences to contend with. A number of key players have faced lengthy stints on the sidelines and their injury list is considerably larger than Arsenal’s.

However, that is not to say the Gunners have not been dealt some blows. Mikel Arteta appears unlikely to be able to name a full-strength squad, although will have most of his players available.

There will be plenty of eyes on the fixture, with Arsenal in serious contention to lift the Premier League trophy. Their rivals will be hoping they slip up and Arsenal will be keen to keep up in the race after wins for Manchester City and Liverpool.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, will be desperate to win and reignite hopes of survival at Bramall Lane.

With kick-off in South Yorkshire just hours away, here is a breakdown of the absentee counts in Sheffield United and Arsenal camps.
