The Gunners have made an unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign, despite not yet consistently producing the kind of performances seen for much of last season, but there has been a resilience about them.
Mikel Arteta will hope those battling qualities are not required this weekend, against a Sheffield United side who sit bottom of the table with just one point from their opening nine League matches.
Arsenal will be on a high too after their Champions League win in midweek, surviving a late scare to edge past Sevilla and leave themselves top of Group B at the halfway stage.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Arsenal vs Sheffield United is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off today, October 28, 2023.
The match will take place at the Emirates Stadium in north London.
