Sheffield United 0-3 Arsenal: Lacazette bags a brace and Gabriel Martinelli nets for the first time in 15 months as Gunners rise to ninth hammering rock-bottom blades

Arsenal secure a comfortable 3-0 victory over Sheffield United, after a goal from Martinelli and a Lacazette brace.

They led 1-0 at the break and despite a positive start by the hosts in the second half, they didn’t test the Gunners and they punished them.

The second goal came after Pepe was denied by Ramsdale, but the keeper could only push it straight into the path of Martinelli who had a tap in from close range.

Lacazette then got his second late on, after a lovely through ball by Partey.

Arsenal have won 66.6 per cent of their six league matches without Aubameyang – four wins, a draw and a loss, compared to 36 per cent of nine wins in the 25 league games he has featured so far in this campaign.

The Gunners have now won four of their six Premier League matches without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this season.

The 31-year-old reportedly missed Sunday’s game at Bramall Lane with a flu, but his absence did not stop the visitors from ending their four-game winless run in all competitions.

Sunday’s triumph came as a relief for Arsenal as they grabbed their first ever Premier League win at Bramall Lane at the fifth attempt since April 1991.

Despite his absence, Aubameyang remains a key player in Mikel Arteta’s set-up and he is the Gunners’ second top scorer after Lacazette with 14 goals across all competitions, including nine Premier League efforts.

Arsenal move up to ninth in the table with this victory, but the Gunners will now turn their attentions back to the Europa League, as they face Slavia Prague on Thursday, with the first leg finishing 1-1 and outing to Fulham in the Premier league on April 18th.

Meanwhile Sheffield United remain rock bottom and it is only a matter of time before their relegation is confirmed. They face Wolves next weekend.
