Arsenal player ratings vs Sheffield United: Unstoppable Eddie Nketiah bags stunning hat-trick as Declan Rice delivers again

Eddie Nketiah scored a sensational hat-trick as Arsenal continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a comfortable 5-0 win against Sheffield United at Emirates.

Nketiah, who came back into the starting lineup due to the injury to Gabriel Jesus, broke what had been some stubborn Sheffield United resistance with an excellent turn and finish just before the half hour mark after he was found by Declan Rice.

The frontman then smashed home a second from close range soon after half-time before completing his hat-trick in stunning style when he crashed an unstoppable 25 yard drive into the top corner.

Substitute Fabio Vieira then added a fourth with a penalty before Takehiro Tomiyasu wrapped things up late on, scoring his first ever Arsenal goal as Mikel Arteta's side closed the gap to leaders Spurs to just two points ahead of next weekend's tricky looking trip to Newcastle United.
