Arsenal travels to Sheffield United in the FA Cup quarter-finals today as both clubs look for their first win since football restarted. The Gunners lost their opening two league matches against Manchester City and Brighton, before beating Southampton on Thursday to show some shoots of recovery. But they remain ninth one place behind Sheffield United in the table, despite the Blades’ own struggles. Chris Wilder’s side drew blanks with Aston Villa before back-to-back 3-0 defeats by Newcastle and Manchester United.
Both teams have falling off the Champions League pace, but the FA Cup provides a major opportunity to chase silverware.
Jack O’Connell is available again for Sheffield United after missing the first three games of the restart with injury, while Dean Henderson returns after sitting out against parent club Manchester United.
David Luiz could return to the Arsenal line-up after a suspension, while Bernd Leno, Calum Chambers, Lucas Torreira, Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari are all out.
