Sheffield United vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Can Arsenal end their Sheffield hoodoo

Can Arsenal end their Sheffield hoodoo

Unai Emery's side had not been beaten in any competition since their 3-1 loss to Liverpool on August 24, but they missed out on the chance to move up to third as the hosts earned a deserved victory.

Kieran Tierney may have been the marquee signing this summer but Kolasinac has proved an able deputy in the left-back position, contributing to Arsenal's eight-game unbeaten run.

But Emery thinks the Gunners were unlucky not take something away from the game. There's such a connection with the manager (Chris Wilder) and the captain (Billy Sharp), and it feels like we all have one aim to achieve things together. Many gave him the benefit of the doubt in his first season with the club, but they continue to look like they are going backwards, certainly in performances, if not in overall results.

We did not deserve to lose and we conceded a lot of corners in the first half and they scored in one action.

"Pepe is improving I think, but his way with us is little-by-little getting better, and the next step is to score".

Arsenal came into the game with five wins in their last six games in all competitions, while the Blades had lost their last three home games in a row. But we needed to produce a big performance because we were playing a team who are a historic football club.

Emery's men should have taken the lead when Sead Kolasinac curled a flawless low cross towards Nicolas Pepe in the six-yard box, but the unmarked Ivory Coast winger completely miscued his shot.

United made the most of that escape as Arsenal's long-running set-piece issues resurfaced in the 30th minute.

Damningly, Arsenal have conceded 22 league goals from set plays since the start of last season, with only Watford (25) and Everton (24) allowing more.
