There’ll be one additional minute and Arsenal have a corner to kick if off, Pepe taking so long to reach the quadrant that it might just be the final play of the half.
I’ve often wondered why, when that happens, teams don’t send everyone forward, but Arsenal decide against it, and when Lacazette’s flick hits the sliding Norwood on the arm, a VAR check finds nothing amiss.
It goes short and Norwood tosses in a decent cross, but Holding heads clear well. The ball comes back though and Egan does really to sort his feet out, swiping a shot that’s more or less straight at Leno.
Arsenal win a corner down the right and Lacazette plays Steve Bould, flicking it on the near post. eventually, the ball makes its way to Martienlli, 12 yards out, but McGoldrick hurls himself in front of the shot and deflects behind for another corner … which comes to nowt.
Blades are really struggling to get anything going here. They mainly can’t get on the ball in dangerous areas and on the odd occasion they do, there’s nothing they can do with it.
And there it is! On the edge of the box, Saka plays a quick pass to Lacazette, who knocks off for Ceballos … whose third lush flick of the evening sticks Lacazette back in, and he takes a touch, opens his body, and henries past Ramsdale. It was coming, and it was beautiful.
