Premier League weekend review: What we learned

Arsenal have been in blistering form since the turn of the year, but their 6-0 victory at Sheffield United provided them with many new firsts.

At half-time the Gunners led Sheff Utd 5-0 and because of the margin of scoreline, it gave us some of the best stats of the season.

The scoring didn't end there either as Ben White extended Arsenal's lead after the break.

And we have compiled some of the best statistics in what was an extraordinary evening at Bramall Lane.

Odegaard's fine form

Martin Odegaard has epitomised Arsenal's brilliant start to 2024 and his opening strike against Sheff Utd meant he has had five direct goal involvements in his last four matches.

Scoring for fun in each half

After Jayden Bogle turned the ball into his own net after 13 minutes, Arsenal became the first team in Premier League history to score at least twice in eight successive halves.

300 up for Mikel Arteta

Arsenal scored their 300th league goal under manager Mikel Arteta in his 161st match in charge. Only Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Manuel Pellegrini achieved this milestone in fewer fixtures, with 120, 142 and 149 respective encounters.

10,000 goals scored!

When White made it 6-0 after half-time, Arsenal recorded their 10,000th goal in their history.

Five-star Arsenal

Arsenal are just the second side in English top-flight history to score five or more goals in three consecutive away matches after Burnley did so in September 1961.

It is the first time in the Premier League that Arsenal have been five goals ahead in a first half.

Saliba completes more passes than Sheff Utd

With 167 passes Arsenal centre-back William Saliba completed more passes than Sheff Utd's entire team, who produced 142.

Saliba also surpassed Santi Cazorla's record number of passes (154) by an Arsenal player in a single Premier League match. 

 Havertz gives English football a landmark number

Havertz's goal, Arsenal's fourth of the match, was the 150,000th goal scored in English top-flight league history.

Best start to a season

Arsenal have now scored 68 times this campaign, which is the most goals they have scored after 27 matches played.

A new favourite opponent

After scoring five in the reverse fixture, Arsenal have netted 11 times across both matches this season, which is the joint-most against an opponent in a single Premier League campaign (also 11 vs Everton in 2004/05 & Derby County in 2007/08).

Just one away

Arsenal finished one short of the record aggregate score in Premier League history which is 12-0 for Man City v Watford.
