Sheffield United vs Arsenal
Kick off: 13:00, 28/06/2020
- After failing to score in three consecutive competitive fixtures for the first time since October 2019, Sheffield United’s best FA Cup campaign since 2013/14 looks shaky. A 64.71% win-draw rate as an outsider during their Premier League (PL) campaign, however, suggests they are capable of taking this contest to extra time.
- The hosts have opened the scoring in all three of their FA Cup fixtures this term - twice inside the first 15 minutes - with their extra-time triumph over Reading one of just four occasions from their last 14 competitive fixtures in which the team that scored first failed to win a 90 minute contest (excluding 0-0 draws).
- Arsenal must fancy their chances of becoming the first away team on the day to win a H2H encounter since 2007 (D1, L2), cruising through to the quarter-finals with the opening goal in all three of their FA Cup games, as well as clean sheets and half-time leads in two of those three.
- They enter this contest with sketchy league form though, having won just three of ten PL matches as a travelling favourite (D5, L2), but have demonstrated scoring prowess with two goals in four of their last eight competitive away fixtures.
- Players to watch: Billy Sharp scored the match winner in Sheffield United’s last FA Cup game, as well as their first goal in two of his last five PL starts.
- Eddie Nketiah has recorded Arsenal’s first goal in two of his last four PL appearances of at least 15 minutes, and has netted in their last two FA Cup ties.
- Stat attack: The visiting side on the day has recorded a first-half goal just once across 18 competitive H2Hs since the start of the 1991/92 season.
- Sheffield United have taken the most corners in all three of their FA Cup matches this campaign.
- Seven of Arsenal’s last eight competitive away matches have produced four or fewer total cards.
