Arsenal secured a sensational 6-0 victory against Sheffield United, marking their seventh consecutive Premier League win and propelling them within two points of league leaders Liverpool. 

The Gunners made history by becoming the first English side to achieve three consecutive away wins with a margin of five or more goals. Manager Mikel Arteta’s squad showcased their relentless attacking ability, with six different scorers contributing to the formidable win.

Captain Martin Odegaard set the tone early with his goal in the fifth minute. Goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Kai Havertz, Jayden Bogle, and Declan Rice, who finished calmly, followed. In the 58th minute, Ben White scored a devastating left-footed goal to complete the victory.

Some home fans left Bramall Lane as early as the 25th minute when the Blades’ defense crumbled in the first half. Arsenal tied the record for most goals scored in the first half of a league game with their performance, which reflected their recent victories over West Ham (6-0) and Burnley (5-0).

Arsenal suffered a blow when Gabriel Martinelli left the pitch in the 64th minute with a right ankle injury, despite the team’s outstanding triumph. Nevertheless, the Gunners’ goal difference now surpasses that of title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City, positioning them third in the league standings.

Manager Arteta expressed his satisfaction with the team’s performance, emphasizing their vivacious energy and desire for continued success. “When you are winning, everything is easier; we must maintain momentum now,” he stated.
