Arsenal make English League history in 6-0 thrashing of Sheffield United

Arsenal make English League history in 6-0 thrashing of Sheffield United

Arsenal destroyed the Premier League's bottom club Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Arsenal made English league history in their complete and utter trouncing against Sheffield United on Monday night.

The Gunners had seen both their title rivals win at the weekend and needed to do the business against Bramall Lane.

And they did more than that, flying into a four-goal lead just 25 minutes into the contest in South Yorkshire - with Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Kai Havertz all on target in addition to an own goal from Jayden Bogle.

Declan Rice got in on the act to make it 5-0 in one of the most one-sided halves of football in Premier League history.

After a surprise spell without a goal at the start of the second half, Ben White lashed in a sixth in the 57th minute.

And Arsenal's latest high-scoring victory meant they set a new record that will be tough to beat.

They became the first English team to win away from home by at least five goals in three consecutive games.

The Gunners put five past Burnley at Turf Moor on 17 Feb and hit West Ham for six in another rout the week before at the London Stadium.

The feat had never been achieved before but always looked likely against the Premier League's bottom club.

Sheff United also made history, albeit in an unwanted way. The Blades are the first team in English football league history to concede at least five goals in four consecutive home games in all competitions.

Brighton delivered two five-goal hauls against them - one in the cup and one in the league - while Aston Villa also scored the same number of goals on 3 Feb.

In another mindblowing stat, the aforementioned three sides have all scored more goals at Bramall Lane than United have managed in Premier League games in all of 2024.
