Arsenal chances of playing in the Europa League next season is hitching close following their 2-1 victory over Sheffield United in the Quarter-Final match of the English FA Cup match.

Dani Ceballos’ 91st-minute winner was the live saver for the North-London side in the match played on Sunday.

The Gunners had led from midway through the first half when Nicolas Pepe had slotted home a penalty after Alexandre Lacazette had been fouled in the box by Chris Basham.

However, McGoldrick restored parity for the Blades in the 87th minutes of play before Real Madrid on-loan midfielder, Ceballos slotted home a low, angled drive for the Gunners to win the tie in a dramatic fashion at Bramall Lane.

Arsenal have won the FA Cup three times in the six seasons prior to this, the latest coming in 2017.
