Arsenal have shattered and established ten Premier League records in their recent clash against Sheffield United. The Gunners’ performance left football enthusiasts and statisticians scrambling to update their record books and calculators as the team continues to rewrite history.

For the third consecutive away league game, Arsenal delivered a stunning goal spree against Sheffield United, adding to their impressive victories at West Ham United and Burnley. In an unprecedented feat, the Gunners became the first side in English league football history to secure three successive away wins by a margin of 5 or more goals.

The avalanche of goals not only secured their place in history but also highlighted the struggles of Sheffield United, who became the first team in English league football to endure three consecutive home league defeats by a margin of at least 5 goals.

Within a span of just 23 days, Arsenal equaled their highest-ever Premier League away win, matching the feat achieved in the triumph against West Ham last month. The victory at Bramall Lane equaled Arsenal’s biggest-ever margin of victory away from home, joining the ranks of their 7-1 victories against Aston Villa and Wolves in the 1930s, as well as their triumph at the London Stadium.

While the Gunners fell just short of their biggest-ever away win, recorded in the UEFA Cup Winners Cup against Standard Liege in November 1993, their first-half dominance against Sheffield United marked a historic moment. Arsenal went 5-0 ahead after 39 minutes, making it the earliest an away side has achieved such a significant lead in Premier League history. Moreover, the Gunners became the first team in the competition’s history to score twice in eight successive halves of matches.

The 11 goals against Sheffield United this season equal Arsenal’s highest tally against an opponent in a single Premier League campaign, matching their achievements against Everton in 2004/05 and Derby County three seasons later. The victory also propelled Arsenal beyond the 300 league goals mark under the stewardship of manager Mikel Arteta.

Individual accomplishments added to the historic night, with Bukayo Saka notching his 50th assist for the club in all competitions. Kai Havertz’s remarkable performance saw him score and assist in each of his last two league games, a feat not accomplished by an Arsenal player since Henrikh Mkhitaryan in February 2019.

Havertz’s goal marked the 150,000th goal scored in England’s top-flight, spanning back to the end of the 19th century, while Arsenal celebrated a monumental milestone as Ben White sealed the game with their sixth goal – the 10,000th goal in the club’s illustrious history.
