JOHN FLECK has downplayed beating Arsenal by admitting Sheffield United have “tougher games to come”.
The Blades won 1-0 on Monday thanks to Lys Mousset’s goal.
But in a damning indictment of Unai Emery’s Arsenal, Fleck thinks bigger challenges await.
The midfielder, 28, said: “We’ve done well so far but we know there are tougher games to come.
“We move on to a difficult game against West Ham. For us it’s just the same every week.
“There will still be difficult moments this season but against Arsenal we got our rewards.”
The win propelled Sheffield United into the top ten, but saw the Gunners slip to fifth.
The defeat saw Arsenal fans beg Arsene Wenger to return as the French legend celebrated his 70th birthday.
After Arsenal’s official Twitter account wished the 22-year club veteran many happy returns, fans flocked to demand Wenger return.
