Sheffield United v Arsenal early Premier League team news as 8 ruled out and 5 doubts

The latest team news and injury updates ahead of Sheffield United's home game with Premier League title contenders Arsenal.

Sheffield United's battle against relegation will face one of its toughest tests on Monday night when Premier League title contenders Arsenal are the visitors to Bramall Lane.

The Gunners have built on a promising season last time out to firmly challenge for a first top flight title in two decades and they will be looking to extend a fine run of form against The Blades. Last weekend's 4-1 hammering of Newcastle United ensured Mikel Arteta's men are looking to extend their winning run to a seventh game against United and that would ensure they will remain in touch with fellow title contenders Manchester City and Liverpool.

For Chris Wilder's side, it is matters at the other end of the Premier League table that is at the forefront of their mind as they look to ensure their top flight stay is extended beyond a solitary season. With a potentially-pivotal clash lying in wait, we look at the early team news ahead of Monday's Bramall Lane meeting.
