Arsenal 2-1 Sheffield United: Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe help Gunners to victory


Second-half goals from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe in the space of just 190 seconds saw Arsenal beat Sheffield United 2-1 despite a nervy finish at the Emirates on Super Sunday.

There was early controversy as David Luiz escaped punishment despite a tug on Oliver Burke as the Sheffield United man blocked his clearance and looked to run through on goal, while at the other end Aaron Ramsdale did superbly to tip over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s dipping effort from range.

Arsenal were not at their best, but won the game with a quick-fire second-half double. The first came through Saka’s far post header from Hector Bellerin’s cross in the 61st minute, and then substitute Pepe’s pass finish rounded off a fine team move three minutes later.
