Arsenal can move third in the Premier League table with a win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane this evening.

Unai Emery has once again left Mesut Ozil out of the travelling squad but Alexandre Lacazette returns after overcoming an ankle injury. The Frenchman is named on the bench tonight with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leading the line up front.

Arsenal make just one change with Joe Willock coming in for Dani Ceballos so Kieran Tierney remains on the bench with Sead Kolasinac starting at left-back. Hector Bellerin still doesn’t make the squad so Calum Chambers is at right-back again.

Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka support the attack with Gabriel Martinelli on the bench along with Lucas Torreira.

These are the teams for the game:

Sheffield United

Henderson, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Stevens, Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Fleck, Mousset, McGoldrick

Subs: Luke Freeman, McBurnie, Sharp, Robinson, Jagielka, Moore, Besic.


Leno; Chambers, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Guendouzi, Willock; Pepe, Aubameyang, Saka

Subs: Martinez, Holding, Tierney, Torreira, Ceballos, Martinelli, Lacazette.
