Sheffield United vs Arsenal LIVE: Premier League result and final score as ruthless visitors embarrass hosts

Sheffield United better team than their results show - Arteta

Rampant Arsenal made history with a 6-0 win away to shambolic Sheffield United as Mikel Arteta’s side moved back to within two points of the Premier League summit.

Having seen title rivals Liverpool edge past Nottingham Forest and Manchester City defeat Manchester United, Mikel Arteta’s men knew they had to respond at the Championship-bound Blades.

Arsenal did so in style and could easily have struck more than the five first-half goals they managed at Bramall Lane, where the Monday evening mauling was completed by a Ben White thunderbolt.

This was the Gunners’ seventh straight Premier League win and saw them become the first English league side to win three consecutive away games by five or more goals.

By contrast, the Blades have now conceded five or more in four successive home games in all competitions.

Sheffield United 0-4 Arsenal

29 mins: The Sheffield United players must be hurting.

Bogle flies into a challenge and cuts down Odegaard.

They have to keep their heads, or this could be another 8-0.

They’ve already lost by that scoreline to Newcastle this season.

GOAL! Sheffield United 0-4 Arsenal (HAVERTZ 25’)


It’s four! Embarrassing for Sheffield United.

It’s hapless from the hosts: Martinelli leads the press and Sheffield United lose possession.

It’s fed to Havertz and his shot is fired into the bottom corner with his left foot.

A fine finish!

Sheffield United 0-3 Arsenal

17 mins: Chris Wilder is forced into a change already. The decision to play a back-four has backfired spectacularly.

Oliver Norwood is replaced by Ben Osborn, and there are some home fans heading for the exits already.

Jamie Braidwood4 March 2024 20:19

GOAL! Sheffield United 0-3 Arsenal (MARTINELLI 15’)

IT’S THREE! Sheffield United are falling apart!

It’s another cutting Arsenal move, with the Gunners flowing forwards in numbers on the break.

Kiwior cuts it back to Martinelli and the winger fires inside the near post!

Three goals in 15 minutes...

GOAL! Sheffield United 0-2 Arsenal (BOGLE OG 13’)

Oh dear... it’s two for Arsenal and an own goal from Jayden Bogle.

This could get really bad,

Saka bursts past Auston Trusty on the right wing and fires across goal.

Bogle is a sitting duck and can’t sort out his feet in time.

It bobbles across the line.

Sheffield United 0-1 Arsenal

10 mins: Almost two! Odegaard plays a stunning pass across to Martinelli, who cuts back to Saka.

The goal is gaping but Saka’s shot is blocked by a host of United defenders, who throw themselves in the way.

GOAL! Sheffield United 0-1 Arsenal (ODEGAARD 5’)

Arsenal lead! Just four minutes gone, but it had been coming since kick-off!

A super move sees Rice make the run to the byline to reach Martinelli’s pass.

He pulls it back and finds Odegaard, whose finish it crisp and past Grbic.

What a start - and now how many could Arsenal get given their form?

Jamie Braidwood4 March 2024 20:05

Sheffield United 0-0 Arsenal

4 mins: White with a ball right across the face! It would have been a tap-in...

Jamie Braidwood4 March 2024 20:05

Sheffield United 0-0 Arsenal

1 min: OFF THE BAR! Arsenal so close already - how has this not gone in?

Saka starts the move on the right before cutting back to Declan Rice. He can’t get his shot away so it falls to Saka, who thunders a volley against the bar. Martinelli then follows in, and Grbic saves on the line!

Jamie Braidwood4 March 2024 20:02

KICK-OFF! Sheffield United 0-0 Arsenal

Underway! A must-win for both, surely?
