ARSENAL were fully loaded when they blew Sheffield United away.

The Gunners did not hold back as they registered yet another massive Premier League victory this season.

Mikel Arteta’s side fired six past Blades stopper Ivo Grbić as they looked to put pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool.

During the game, the visitors racked up some impressive stats.

Martin Odegaard completed a staggering 84 passes during the match, and only misplaced nine.

Declan Rice, a defensive midfielder, enjoyed himself as he scored and got forward as he took five shots.

With the victory, it meant that Arsenal’s recent away form has been more than impressive.

They became the second-ever top-flight English team to win three consecutive away games by scoring five or more goals.

They join Burnley with the record as the Claret managed the feat in September 1961.

However, they are the first ever to win three on the bounce by five goals.

While Gabriel Martinelli has scored six and assisted four and Kai Havertz has scored three and assisted three.

Havertz’s effort was also a history-making goal as it was the 150,000th in English top-flight history.

Since November 2018, Saka is only the fifth player in the Premier League to hit 50 assists and 50 goals.

The others to hit that mark are Mohamed Salah, Son Heung-min, Bruno Fernandes, Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne

Since the turn of the year, the Gunners have been potent in front of goal.

The club has scored 30 goals in 2024, which is just seven short of Manchester United’s tally for the entire season.

The first three goals scored against the Blades took the club’s tally to 300 in the Premier League since the appointment of Mikel Arteta.

It has taken 161 league games to reach that milestone, only Pep Guardiola (120), Jurgen Klopp (142) and Manuel Pellegrini (149) reached that total of goals quicker.

Arsenal’s goal difference has now had a handy boost and is the biggest in the division.
