Arsenal manager Unai Emery was impressed with the performance of his players despite the result achieved against newly promoted side Sheffield United.

Unai Emery and his Arsenal players suffered a second defeat of the season in the Premier League following the 1-0 loss at the home of the Blades.

After the game, Unai Emery said that his players performed well and that they were unlucky to lose the Premier League clash against Sheffield United.

Hosts Sheffield United were able to move into the top half of the Premier League table as a result of the slim win over the Gunners.

It was only their third win since gaining promotion into the Premier League.

The only goal of the game was scored by young French striker Lys Moussett in the first half of the game played at Bramall Lane on Monday night.

The summer signing prodded home the winning goal from close range after the Gunners failed to deal with a corner kick.

On their part, Arsenal failed to return to third position on the Premier League table as a result of the defeat.

Arsenal had started week nine league games in third position before wins for Chelsea and Leicester City on Saturday saw them drop to fifth position on the table.
