Dean Henderson, 7: Excellent save from Nicolas Pepe, who gave him no chance with the penalty. Could even have scored himself.

INJURY: Lundstram was forced off midway through the first half. Picture: Oli Scarff/NMC Pool/PA Wire.

Chris Basham, 6: Put the Blades' best chance wide with a diving header.

John Egan, 7: An important block from Xhaka the highlight of some good defending.

Jack Robinson, 8: His defending has been better than his distribution since the restart but a cross for Chris Basham and a long throw for Oli McBurnie could have created goals, and one for David McGoldrick did.

George Baldock, 6: Usual hard-working performance by the wing-back.

DISALLOWED: Sheffield United players celebrate after they thought they had taken the lead before Lundstram's goal was chalked off for offside. Picture: Andrew Boyers/NMC Pool/PA Wire.

John Fleck, 7: An excellent turn and pass to release McGoldrick in the first half.

Oliver Norwood, 6: Improved showing after his Old Trafford substitution.

John Lundstram, 6: When it's not your day... first a goal disallowed by the video assistant referee, then left with his arm in a sling.

Enda Stevens, 6: Thought he had snuffed out the danger late on, but not so.

BALL IN THE NET: Lundstram wheels away in celebration before having his goal ruled out. Picture: Andrew Boyers/NMC Pool/PA Wire.

David McGoldrick, 7: Goals in consecutive FA Cup games for a striker still to score in the Premier League, he caused Arsenal really problems down their right in the opening quarter.

Oliver McBurnie, 7: Decent performance from the target man.

Substitutes: Sander Berge (for Lundstram, 35), 5: Touches and final balls just did not come off.

K Freeman (for Baldock, 65), 6: Did his job as Baldock's replacement. Became a conventional right-back in the closing stages.

Sharp (for Basham, 76), 6: Forced Martinez into a good save with his legs .

Not used: L Freeman, Jagielka, Mousset, Osborn, Moore, Zivkovic.
