Arsenal's unbeaten run ended by Sheffield United

23 October 2019

Arsenal's eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions came to an end after newly-promoted Sheffield United secured an impressive home win over Unai Emery’s men.

The Gunners suffered their second loss of the 2019/20 Premier League season after being defeated 1-0 by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

French forward Lys Mousset scored the winning goal in the 30th minute of play in Monday's Premier League clash to earn the Blades all three points on his first league start.

Thanks to their excellent team performance, Sheffield United moved into the top half of the Premier League table and sit proudly in ninth place, level on points with Bournemouth, Burnley, and Tottenham. Chris Wilder’s side is just three points behind the north Londoners and four points above the relegation zone.

On the other hand, Arsenal could have climbed back into the Premier League top 3, but the north London outfit have slipped to fifth place, two behind Leicester City and fierce rivals Chelsea, with 15 points accumulated.

What’s next?

Arsenal are looking to make it three wins from three in the Europa League group stages as the Gunners welcome Vitoria to the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.
