"We limited them to few chances and backed up a good performance with a good result, " Sheffield manager Chris Wilder said.

The loss means Arsenal missed a chance to go third in the standings, remaining in fifth instead, while Sheffield climbed to ninth after its first home win since August 18.

Emery threw on attacking midfielder Dani Ceballos, Lacazette and Brazilian teenage forward Gabriel Martinelli in the second half, but the Gunners still couldn't create a single chance to score. "We created more corners, 12 [compared to] seven or eight for them, and also we had the chances".

Unai Emery's side had not been beaten in any competition since their 3-1 loss to Liverpool on August 24, but they missed out on the chance to move up to third as the hosts earned a deserved victory.

A number of those Arsenal fans took to social media after the 1-0 loss at Bramall Lane to weigh in on the future of their manager, with plenty of them believing his time at the Emirates Stadium is up and calling for him to be sacked.

"It's been a great night for us", Wilder said. But we needed to produce a big performance because we were playing a team who are a historic football club.

"The manager's career with that team is incredible and how they are playing is the same (way) as they played in the Championship, with big confidence, good players and their style is to be offensive".

"A lot of people speak a lot of bulls**t and it's always the same".

The Blades secured their third win since winning promotion back to the top flight last season, which lifted them up to ninth in the table. "For me it is the same if you play home or away".

"I used to call them "my babies" 10 years ago, and they are still when I look at them and think they are "my babies" and that's the truth - I'm not being disrespectful when I say that".
