Sheffield United star reacts on Twitter with shock as Sheffield Wednesday beat Premier League giants Arsenal

Sheffield Wednesday 2

Sheffield Wednesday stunned everybody with how easily they defeated Arsenal.

Sheffield Wednesday had been progressing nicely under new boss Carlos Carvalhal - and last night they made the football world sit up and take notice.

The Owls showed they may just have the makings of a side capable of achieving big things this season, as they knocked out a Premier League side for the second round in a row.

They beat Newcastle United in the last round, and defeated Arsenal last night 3-0.

Their performance, and Arsenal's failure to show up, saw rival striker Che Adams of Sheffield United take to Twitter to express his bemusement at the scoreline - and give a thumbs down.

No doubt he was hoping to see the Gunners turn on the style, only to see an insipid and listless display from a side which boasted French internationals Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud, and World Cup winner Per Mertesacker.

Wednesday were good value for their win, and are threatening to pull further away from Sheffield United in terms of success, with the Blades, who are sixth in League One.
