The wheel's have come off for us now, the covid break was the worse thing for our momentum. Was going to say that maybe being at the Lane again will help, but it's our away record that's defined us this season.

Hope we go strong today, no reason not to, not looking likely to do much in the league so why not try. Really could go either way this one though, although Sheffield have struggled since the restart we haven't been anywhere close to good. Really not sure about this one.

Goal Sheff Utd!

Too easy.

McBurnie heads back across goal from a corner and Lundstram is in the right place.

 

Although on replays looks like it could be offside...

Defending has been bad but we have kept the ball well without looking like scoring. Not a bad performance  though considering we have been so poor lately.

Penalty Arsenal!

Didn't think it was initially but on replay there is a little kick on the back of Lacazette as Basham goes for the ball.

1-0 Arsenal! Pepe tucks it away. Good penalty.

@SirBalon 69 I actually  think we have some good youth coming through with nketiah and saka. Nketiah isn't playing for some reason but the one good thing about the club is the youth

Keeper got near it actually. Good keeper could quite easily go to the euros next year ?

Think he's a worthy shout.

Do you think keepers loose form when they play for England or do we just scrutinise them more?

Scrutinise them more. One error and a career can be over. Trial by media etc.

Defensive error brings it level. And to think they were doing so well up until then.

Equaliser! Calamitous defending from Arsenal. Sliced clearance hits Mustafi and falls to McGoldrick who can't miss.

Awful defending!   Dont think we have had a shot on target in the 2nd half.

The youth aren't good though, its good we have young players but the quality isnt there.

Mate not really, was just a keeper mistake, Arsenal have been dreadful and this just papers over the cracks.

Keeper mistake? Think the lack of defence as Sheff Utd piled forward for a winner didn't help either.

Keeper got beaten at the near post due to poor positioning.

Missed this, going to go back and watch it at some point. Glad we got through though, think 3 at the back is the way forward till the end of the season at least. 

Not the best but not the worst statistics for Pepe. I don't think he has been an complete success but considering the fallout we've had this season and lack of support he has done pretty well. Definitely needs a jump next season which I'm expecting.
