Watch: David McGoldrick Scores An Absolute Beauty Against Arsenal

The perfect time to find you goalscoring touch!

Sheffield United fell to yet another Premier League defeat this afternoon, with Arsenal running out 2-1 winners at The Emirates. It was a game that the home side had the majority of the chances in, although the visitors did ask plenty of questions towards the end.

Goals from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe gave Arsenal a 2-0 lead heading into the closing stages, but Ireland striker David McGoldrick would produce a moment of magic to give his side a lifeline.

The 32-year old picked up the ball at the edge of the penalty area before producing a beautiful curling shot into the far corner with his weaker left foot.

It was McGoldrick's first Premier League goal of the season having also scored in the Carabao Cup a few weeks ago.

Sheffield United turned the screw in the final moments but were unable to find the equaliser. This is their fourth consecutive defeat to start the season, but that doesn't tell the full story of their campaign up to this point.

Chris Wilder's side have performed admirably in every game and count themselves unlucky to lose on at least a couple of occasions. Goals are the main issue, with that strike from McGoldrick being their first in the league this season. They will be hoping the signing of Rhian Brewster can help in that department.

For McGoldrick, he has discovered his scoring touch at the perfect time. He is likely to lead the line for Ireland in their vital Euro 2020 play-off against Slovakia on Thursday.

Hopefully he can produce a similar moment of magic on that occasion.
