MOTM: Martin Ødegaard.

Kai Havertz’s goal tonight (Arsenal’s fourth) was the 150,000th goal scored in English top-flight league history.

Arsenal have now scored 300 Premier League goals under Mikel Arteta in what is his 161st game in charge – the only managers to reach that total in fewer games in the competition are Pep Guardiola (120), Jürgen Klopp (142) and Manuel Pellegrini (149).

11 goals against Sheffield United this season, Arsenal’s joint most against an opponent in a single Premier League campaign (also 11 vs Everton in 2004-05 & Derby in 2007-08).

William Saliba has surpassed Santi Cazorla’s record number of passes by an Arsenal player in a single Premier League game. He completed 169. Only three players in the Premier League since 2003 have completed more in the whole competition (all City players).

Sheffield United are the first English side in history to concede 5+ goals in four consecutive home games:

  • Sheff Utd 2-5 Brighton
  • Sheff Utd 0-5 Aston Villa
  • Sheff Utd 0-5 Brighton
  • Sheff Utd 0-6 Arsenal

Bukayo Saka scored six Premier League goals in February 2024, the most by an Arsenal player in a single calendar month since Robin van Persie in October 2011 (7).

William Saliba completed 169 passes vs. Sheffield United, the most he has managed in a single game in his entire career AND 27 more than the entire Sheffield United team managed combined (142).

Arsenal have FIVE players with 10+ goal involvements in the Premier League this season. No team in the competition has more:

  • Bukayo Saka~ 13 goals & 7 assists
  • Martin Odegaard ~ 6 goals & 6 assists
  • Declan Rice ~ 5 goals & 5 assists
  • Gabriel Martinelli ~ 6 goals & 4 assists
  • Kai Havertz ~ 7 goals & 3 assists

Arsenal went five goals ahead of Sheffield United by the 39th minute, which is the earliest an away side has had a five-goal margin in Premier League history.

Before 2024, Arsenal had never won a Premier League away game 0-6, Arteta has now done it twice within the space of a month:

  • West Ham 0-6 Arsenal
  • Sheffield United 0-6 Arsenal

Arsenal have now scored more Premier League away goals in 2024 (19 in 4 games) as Manchester United have all season (18 in 14 games).
