Chris Wilder warned Sheffield United they ‘will have to play a lot better’ than they performed in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal.
Gabriel Martinelli’s goal on the stroke of half-time appeared to have the Gunners on course for a vital victory – only for John Fleck to strike with seven minutes remaining and secure a 1-1 draw.
After seeing United rescue a point to remain seventh, Wilder echoed the sentiment of Arteta as Arsenal left the door open for them to come back and secure a point.
“I don’t think we were anywhere near our best today,” he said.
“The result is better than the performance, the game was not put to bed by the opposition.
“When teams don’t put you to bed, we have an opportunity to get something from the game. We need to play a lot better than that for us to regularly pick up points.”
