Dec 5, 2023

The Premier League never ceases to give us spectacular, eventful matches. 

It’s already the 10th round of EPL, and English football fans are looking forward to the confrontation between two completely different teams, frontrunners, and underdogs – Arsenal and Sheffield United. 

Considering their position in the standings, the prediction for the match seems quite obvious, so plenty of fans are already rushing to GG Bet to place a bet on the winner. 

Well, the guests hopelessly close the standings, but perhaps this will be the very match for them to gain their first victory. 

We are going to puzzle out some statistics so that you make a winning bet.

Game Information

  • Stadium: Emirates Stad., London, UK
  • Date of the match: Saturday, October 23, 2023
  • Start: 14:00 UTC


  • Year of foundation: 1886
  • Country: England
  • Coach: Mikel Arteta (Spanish)

Arteta’s wards showcase great performance throughout the season. However, fans expect nothing less from one of the oldest teams in the English division. 

Before the previous round, the hosts were at the top of the standings along with Tottenham, but the loss of two points in the match with Chelsea forced them to drop their position. 

So the Gunners are currently in the 3rd place, right behind Manchester City. In any case, Arsenal is among the top 5 best teams in the championship, with 6 wins and 3 draws in 9 games.

Sheffield United

  • Year of foundation: 1889
  • Country: England
  • Coach: Paul Heckingbottom (English)

Sadly, the Blades have managed to gain only 1 point in the first 9 league games, which looks like a complete failure. 

At the same time, the team conceded the greatest number of goals (24!) and scored only 7 times (which is almost the worst result except for Bournemouth, which scored only 6 goals). 

Sheffield United has not won a single match, but they still managed to draw with Everton (2:2). 

Well, not so many matches have been played yet, but their position does not look so hopeless – the Blades are only 4 points behind Luton Town, which ranks 17th.
