Sheffield United 0-6 Arsenal: The Gunners Hit an Impressive Total of 21 Goals in Four League Games

Sheffield United 0-6 Arsenal: The Gunners Hit an Impressive Total of 21 Goals in Four League Games

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal visiting Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United at Bramall Lane was the final fixture on Matchday 27 of the 2023/2024 English Premier League Season, and the best was saved for last as the Gunners extended their superb form in front of goal in this away game in the English top-flight football. Mikel’s Arteta’s men started the game with a superb notion, scoring five goals in the first half, before ending the game with a monumental advantage of six goals to nil on enemy territory. The Gunners’ ruthlessness yesterday meant the Blades have let past a whooping total in 72 goals over 27 games in the 2023/2024 EPL campaign thus far.

 

The Gunners Slapped Sheffield with Five in Less Than 34 Minutes

Arsenal came into the game at Bramall Lane on the back of a six-game winning streak in the English Premier League, and that statement momentum was immediately translated into the match yesterday, with the game opener being scored within the opening five minutes. Beautiful quick exchanges around the edge of the penalty box saw new summer signing Declan Rice through to the dangerous zone, followed by the England international’s delivery that skipped past everyone but his skipper Martin Ødegaard, who put the ball into the back of the net at the bottom right corner.

The day turned from bad to worse for the Blades at home only moments after the opening goal was scored following an own goal by Jayden Bogle. The 23-year-old right-back just could not get out of the way when the mesmerising Bukayo Saka crossed the ball into the six-yard box, giving a 2-0 advantage to the visitors as a result. This Sheffield United-Arsenal league clash became 3-0 in the Gunners’ favour almost instantly succeeding the second goal, courtesy of Gabriel Martinelli. The Brazilian capped off another wonderful team play by the Gunners, and luck certainly played a part as the ball took a deflection before crossing the line for Arsenal’s third goal.

In the 25th minute, a poor ball control saw a Sheffield United player being dispossessed in his own half, allowing Kai Havertz to charge towards the Blades goal. The German decided that he did not need any help in that attacking play, firing an effort into the far post for the Gunners’ fourth goal of the evening. Before the half-time break could save the home team from more embarrassments, Arteta’s men scored their fifth goal thanks to Rice. The midfielder owed his England teammate Saka over the latter’s pass that connected him to unleash a shot that forced Ivo Grbić to pick the ball from the net for the fifth time in this game.

The Gunners Make the 2023/2024 EPL Season a Three-Team Title Race

Sheffield United’s nightmare in their defensive presence finally ended via Arsenal’s sixth and final goal of this Premier League encounter. Just two minutes shy off the hour mark, Jorginho teed up Havertz with an accurate long ball, followed by the ex-Chelsea man finding Ben White for a first-time shot that cracked past the goalkeeper despite his touch on the ball. The game would end with the Gunners emerging as 6-0 winners in this lopsided contest.

Arsenal’s six goals against Sheffield United meant they have now scored 31 and 21 goals in the past seven and four games in the English Premier League, and the Gunners managed to bag the maximum points of 21 to make the 2023/2024 English top-flight football one of the most intense title races ever with 11 games to go. With their 6-0 demolition against Sheffield United at the latter’s home, the Gunners are within striking distance from league leaders Liverpool and second-placed Manchester City, and their superiority in terms of goal differences will come handy against these title contenders sometime in the future.

Arteta on the Gunners’ High-Scoring Form: “It’s About Winning Every Game Now.”

Arteta gave compliments that the Gunners deserved of late, but cited that earning all 3 points are more crucial than finding the back of the net numerous times in the remaining games. “The way we started made a difference. We were really aggressive and positive and we showed real quality in the final third to take the game into a great position for us. Then we maintained the rhythm, maintained the hunger and I love that about the team. The fact that we’re scoring many goals and not conceding is a great sign, but it’s about winning every game now. That’s the demands these two teams have set over the past few years and that’s the task ahead of us.”

The Spaniard’s Arsenal are set to return to home and take on Brentford in the Premier League next, but the Gunners are likely to play that match without Brazilian striker Martinelli, who limped off the game and was replaced by Gabriel Jesus in the 64th minute after scoring a goal within the initial 15 minutes. In regard to this matter, Arteta went on to give an initial update on the forward: “We need to wait and see how it is.”

Arteta’s spirits in the Gunners beating Sheffield was a huge contrast to to the deflated losing manager Wilder, whose team are inches away from relegation. “It’s been a painful season, a real painful one before me and through my period. There’s a lot of broken and damaged players out there because this is what the league can do to you, especially when you’re off it and they’re on it. When you don’t close the gap they make it look huge. What you’ll notice and see a little bit more now is the introduction of the younger players because I thought we were better when they came on,” stated the 56-year-old. The Blades will encounter Bournemouth for the following league game.
