Video: Sloppy Arsenal defending after throw-in sees McGoldrick score for Sheffield United

In the 86th minute of today’s FA Cup Quarter-Final clash between Sheffield United and Arsenal, David McGoldrick equalised for the Blades after the Gunners were caught napping.

A long-throw in into the box dropped dangerously in the six-yard box, Sead Kolasinac’s failed attempt at a clearance actually led to the ball floating into McGoldrick’s path.

The centre-forward made no mistake as he volleyed the ball into the back of the net.

Take a look at the Republic of Ireland international’s equaliser below:
