Game Report

Highlights

Sheffield United preyed on Arsenal's vulnerabilities to claim a well earned victory over them. Lys Mousset scored from a basic corner routine and the Blades were able to see the game out doggedly in the second half.

Detail

A typically high-energy and aggressive start from Sheffield United at home. They looked to put their opponents under pressure - especially on set plays.

Arsenal were able to put together a rare move of quality which should've led to the opening goal. Nicolas Pepe started a sweeping counter-attack but he couldn't finish it from just a few yards out.

The hosts took the lead and unsurprisingly it came from a corner. Jack O'Connell nodded down Oliver Norwood's delivery and Mousset was on hand to turn it in under no real pressure.

The Blades even looked to kill the game early in the second half. John Fleck had a couple of fine efforts from distance - one which troubled Bernd Leno.

The inevitable late pressure came from Arsenal but they lacked real ingenuity in the final third - unable to create clear chances. Pepe went close with a couple of strikes from range but other than that, the Gunners looked toothless.

Summary

A performance full of hard work and endeavour from Sheffield United who deserved their victory. The same old defensive failings were there again for Arsenal and perhaps more worrying is that they didn't look that threatening going forward either.
