Sheffield United have John Egan available again after he served a one-match ban against Leeds and the defender is likely to go straight back into manager Chris Wilder’s starting line-up.


The Yorkshire club are set to sign Rhian Brewster from Liverpool but it remains to be seen if the deal will be done in time for the striker to be involved at the Emirates Stadium.

Jack O’Connell underwent knee surgery this week. Wilder confirmed there were “no complications” with the operation but the defender will be out for around six months.
