Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Sheffield United

Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Sheffield United on Sunday.

Arsenal will be desperate to bounce back from their latest disappointment when they travel to Bramall Lane to take on the Premier League's basement side Sheffield United on Sunday evening.

Mikel Arteta's side were seconds away from claiming a 1-0 win in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final with Slavia Prague, but they conceded an equaliser to Tomas Holes right at the death to draw 1-1 during an incredibly frustrating night.

The Gunners' European hopes are now hanging by a thread, and a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the league sees them languish in 10th spot - seven points adrift of the top six and 10 below West Ham United in the top four.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their trip to Bramall Lane.
