With both Liverpool and Manchester City winning their respective matches this weekend to extend the lead at the top of the Premier League table, Arsenal are expected to respond on Monday to keep pace with their rivals.

Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is confident in the Gunner’s ability to overpower Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. 

Mikel Arteta’s side have showcased impressive form in 2024, maintaining an unbeaten streak in league games since the start of the year.

Arsenal’s outstanding run positions them as clear favourites heading into the match against Sheffield United, with the Blades expected to struggle with the challenge of containing the Gunners.

While acknowledging that Arsenal faces tougher challenges later in the season, securing maximum points in the upcoming match against Sheffield United is deemed imperative for Arteta’s side.

Fabregas, speaking to the BBC, shared his insights on Arsenal’s current strength and confidence: “I see Arsenal at the moment as too strong. I see them confident,” the Spaniard said. “I know they lost against Porto, but I think in the Premier League nowadays they are two levels up, and I believe that they know exactly what they’re doing.

“I’m sure they believe, and they’re pushing from the staff point of view to win this game more than anything because these games win titles.”

He highlighted the unique challenges associated with Monday night football, emphasising the importance of understanding factors such as travel, waiting time, and opponents’ performances. Fabregas emphasised that, at present, Arsenal appears too robust to drop points against Sheffield United.

“It’s very different to go in my day to Stoke City on Saturday three o’clock then Monday night football.

“We go back to perceptions, to the humidity, the night time to approach the games, the travelling, the long wait for the game, these little things, knowing exactly what the opponents have done.

“If they have won they put pressure on you.

“There’s a bit of everything but, at the moment, I see Arsenal a little bit too strong to be dropping points there.”
