Saka and Pepe’s goal lifted Arsenal to fourth

Arsenal back on track with goals from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe for a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United in the Premier League, which lifted them to fourth.

After getting his first call to the England squad, Saka capped an incredible week by breaking the deadlock with a confident header in the 61st minute.

Substitute Pepe doubled Arsenal’s advantage to allow Mikel Arteta’s side breathing space in the game less than four minutes later.

As Arsenal failed to break down the tough visitors Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang created the only moment of consistency in the first half, with his diving shot from all of 30 yards forcing a fine save from Aaron Ramsdale.

The first shot of the match in the 28th minute was recorded by Eddie Nketiah, who started ahead of the in-form Alexandre Lacazette, the longest wait for a shot this calendar year in a Premier League game.

After only five minutes, though, when last-man David Luiz appeared to pull back Sheffield United forward Oliver Burke after the Brazilian was trapped in control, the biggest talking point of the first period came, but the referee Lee Mason allowed play to begin and the hosts survived.

Arsenal took up the pace and opened the scoring with their first incisive pass of the game after the restart, Hector Bellerin picking Saka out at the far post, before Pepe giving the hosts what looked like a safe lead.

United’s first goal of the season to give the visitors hope with six minutes left, but Arsenal kept on to secure their third league match of the season, leaving the men of Chris Wilder pointless after four matches.
