Ian Wright reacts to Sheffield United’s tweet following Arsenal loss

Arsenal slumped to a 1-0 loss at promoted Sheffield United on Monday in the Premier League, upping the pressure on coach Unai Emery after another performance void of creativity and flair.

It can be a missed penalty to settle a Wembley shoot-out, a wonder save in an FA Cup semi-final or a rival being fired to Premier League survival at your expense by a striker whose signing contravened regulations.

Many judges would have expected Sheffield United to be more physical than the Gunners, but what would have been more worrying for fans of the London club, would be that the Blades played the better football for much of the night, and clearly deserved their victory.

Arsenal attempted to break down Chris Wilder's side in the second-half but clear cut chances were few and far between.

Mitchell's " Pretty Little Liars " co-star Sasha Pieterse-Sheaffer also confirmed the birth of the baby in one TV guesting. We're beyond excited and looking forward to starting a family. "The past nine months have been more than I ever imagined".

The result leaves Arsenal in fifth place on 15 points, two behind Leicester City and Chelsea, while Sheffield United moved into ninth on 12 points.

"Everton away and Arsenal at home".

Lys Mousset scored a deserved opener for the hosts just after half-hour mark, redirecting a Jack O'Connell header into the back of the net from close range following a corner.

A midfield three of Joe Willock, Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi produced little in the first half but Nicolas Pepe - the Gunners' brightest spark - missed a sitter to put his side ahead when he failed to connect with a blazed cross across the box.

United's defence held firm and the home side threatened to double their lead through John Fleck, who hit a rasping shot into the side netting before striking a swerving effort from distance which had to be gathered at the second time of asking by Bernd Leno.
