Arsenal vs Sheffield United Live!
Arsenal scored two goals in the 2-1 win over Sheffield United, with Fukuoka Saga and Nicola Pepe scoring in the second half, with the Gunners’ miscue finally finding its rhythm.
The spectators frustrated Arsenal for the first hour, but Saga broke the deadlock by going home following an active pass in the 61st minute, and substitute Nicola Pepe added a second three minutes later.
Irish striker David McColdrick gave his side confidence with an amazing curling effort in the 84th minute, but the Wisters were unable to create a balance as Arsenal held on comfortably for the win.
The win elevates them to fourth on nine points, three behind leaders Everton, and 19th in Sheffield United after four defeats in their opening four league games.

Two in four minutes and Arsenal suddenly fly!
It’s a cracking goal, and Pepe takes it from Beller’s width to the right and then drives it inside to push it into a beautiful finish from a distance.
The goal! | Arsenal 1-0 Sheffield United | Bukayo Saga 61 ‘
The first real quality we saw and Arsenal are ahead. Some beautiful one-touch football sees the feed of Abameyang Beller and hangs a cross to the far post to power the saga home on the right.
57 minutes: Now Arteta is following suit. Nicola Pepe walks in with Eddie Nketia, so you’d think Abameyang would move in the middle.
56 minutes: Chris Wilder returns to his bench first – Oliver Burke has sound McBurney.
49 minutes: There are no changes on either side of the break, however you will think it won’t be long if it continues.
We are going …
Half time | Arsenal 0-0 Sheffield United
42 minutes: Relief for Arsenal fans – Abemayang re-enabled.
39 minutes: Dear. O dear, O dear, O dear.
Sander Berg is in the book to control Abamayang, while the Arsenal captain stays down. The physio is in motion, but he is in pain.
37 minutes: Close!
Aaron Ramstale holds the prizes with a poor pass out, and Abameyang has a try from 30 yards out, but the keeper recovers to save a better fingertip.
Simon Collings is in the Emirates
A little more to report from here. We have at least one shot, but the most interesting thing at the moment is how much voice and animation Sheffield United’s bench has. Shouting and calling for every end.
34 minutes: This is not a good half-hour football.
28 minutes: The first attempt is towards Arsenal’s goal because Tyrne hit an early cross and Nketia flew it into the arms of Aaron Ramstale.
Simon Collings is in the Emirates
It should be the first game again with fans at the Emirates, and there are some things we can do. It was a bit flat and neither side created clear opportunities. No more shots towards the goal.
18 minutes: Arsenal are struggling for a little rhythm this time around, with Cephalos admitting to keep it cheap in midfield, before listening to a lot of negativity with a ball into the Abamayang channels.
Kick-off time and place
Arsenal vs Sheffield United are scheduled to take on BST at 2pm.
The match will be behind closed doors at Emirates Stadium due to a lack of fans due to government guidelines regarding the Corona virus.
