Premier League Arsenal Thrash Sheffield To Set Premier League Record

Arsenal matched their largest Premier League away win on Monday with a 6-0 thrashing of Sheffield United.

The Gunners in their quest to win the Premier League title also cut the advantage to just two points from leaders Liverpool,

After 27 games, Mikel Arteta’s club is in third place with 61 points, one point behind Manchester City, although they have a far superior goal differential than their title rivals. With 11 points outside of the safety zone, the Blades are still firmly planted to the bottom.

The Gunners, who have won seven straight games this season, are the first Premier League team to do so.

They also seem to be picking up steam just in time to maintain pressure on the top two.

Arsenal was merciless, effortlessly slicing through United’s defence right away.

Odegaard’s goal in the fifth minute, which he scored from the middle of the box following a deft cutback by Declan Rice, set the ball rolling.

After Jayden Bogle scored his own goal in the 13th, Gabriel Martinelli’s strike two minutes later sent a large number of frustrated United supporters running out of Bramall Lane. Other goals came from Kai Havertz in the 25th minute, Rice in the 39th minute, and Ben White in the 58th minute.
Arsenal’s early fireworks appeared to jeopardise the team’s 9-0 Premier League scoring record, but Arteta’s substitutions, which saw forward Bukayo Saka sitting on the bench following an outstanding 45 minutes, helped Blades supporters avoid further suffering.

Grbic made a fantastic stop to deny Arsenal a seventh goal as replacement Gabriel Jesus curled a shot that appeared to be headed for the far corner.

They equaled the record six-goal victory margin in a 7-1 top flight triumph against Aston Villa in 1935, as well as their highest Premier League away win, which was a 6-0 thumping of West Ham United on February 11.

On Monday, the Gunners did indeed create history as they became the first English team to win three straight away games by a score of five goals or more.

Additionally, they joined Burnley as the only other English team to score five goals or more in three straight away top division games in September 1961.

United has allowed 21 goals and scored two goals in their last four games at Bramall Lane across all competitions.
