Players to Watch
Martin Odegaard (Arsenal)
Martin Odegaard is the captain of Arsenal and their most influential player on the pitch. He keeps the ball moving and loves to create scoring opportunities for his teammates. The Norwegian international is also a threat with his impeccable shooting quality from range.
Martin Odegaard has three goals and one assist already for the Gunners. Sheffield United must find a way to silence the midfielder if they are to come away from the fixture with at least a point.
Cameron Archer (Sheffield United)
Cameron Archer was the pick of players when Sheffield United faced Manchester United. The forward caused plenty of problems with his pace and movement. The 21-year-old is having a promising start and already winning the hearts of the fans.
