Sheffield United vs Arsenal LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Arsenal delivered another statement win in their English Premier League title challenge by thrashing last-placed Sheffield United 6-0 on Monday.

Some home fans left their seats and were seen heading to the exits inside Bramall Lane after 25 minutes when Kai Havertz made it 4-0, adding to strikes from Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli either side of an own-goal by Jayden Bogle.

With supporters in the away end singing "We're gonna score in a minute," Declan Rice slotted home a fifth in the 39th minute. It meant Arsenal scored five goals in three straight away league games — after West Ham (6-0) and Burnley (5-0) — and tied the record for most goals scored in the first half of a league game.

The visitors weren't finished there, with right back Ben White becoming the sixth different scorer when lashing a left-foot shot into the far corner in the 58th.

At that stage, Arsenal looked a good bet to threaten the most goals scored by a team in a league game and the competition's biggest margin of victory, with three clubs — Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester United (twice) — having won 9-0 down the years.

However, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta's decision to make a raft of substitutions — including removing Bukayo Saka at halftime and others like Rice and Jorginho later on — broke his team's rhythm and Sheffield United's players could breathe slightly easier.

Still, it was a good night for Arsenal's goal difference, which is now far superior to that of title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City. Arsenal stayed in third place, two points behind Liverpool and a point adrift of City, and has won seven straight games in the league.

The only negative on the night was the sight of Martinelli being helped off with a right ankle injury in the 64th.

Sheffield United, which has already lost 8-0 to Newcastle and 5-0 to Brighton at home this season, stayed in last place, 11 points adrift of safety with 11 games remaining.

Arteta provides fresh injury update after Saka and Martinelli scares

22:47 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mikel Arteta provided an update on the fitness of both Bukayo Saka and Garbriel Martinelli after Arsenal’s huge win over Sheffield United.

The Gunners continued their relentless run of form on Monday night, romping to 6-0 victory over the Premier League’s bottom side at Bramall Lane.

Martin Odegaard kicked things off with a goal within the opening five minutes, at which point Arteta’s side could have been 3-0 up.

Arsenal's class of entertainers offered perfect stage to shine

22:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

Arsenal have become the Premier League’s entertainers - but on this occasion Sheffield United gave them the stage to do so.

Right from the off, you could see which way this game was going and by the time Martin Odegaard opened the scoring in the fifth minute, it could have already been 3-0.

In the end, it finished 6-0 and had Arsenal been even more ruthless they could have scored more.

The hosts made it easy for the Gunners, but credit must go to them for the way they took full advantage.

Arsenal are unlikely to get many easy nights in this title race, however they gave themselves one here by blowing the Blades away in the first 15 minutes.

Arsenal player ratings: Havertz silences more critics; Odegaard runs the show

22:08 , Jonathan Gorrie

Arsenal made it seven Premier League wins in a row with a comfortable victory over Sheffield United.

The Gunners totally dominated the first-half and they were five goals to the good by the break.

The second-half, unsurprisingly, did not match the first and Arsenal only scored one more, as Ben White got in on the act to make it 6-0.

The win moved Arsenal to within two points of League leaders Liverpool and one off Manchester City, who are second.
