Scotland international John Fleck continued his impressive Premier League campaign at the weekend with a goal in a 1-1 Sheffield United draw with Arsenal.

The Blades have been flying this season, currently in the running for potential European places. It comes after their promotion from the Championship last season.

Their Scottish midfielder has been one of their key men in this ascent up the league table and he impressed at the Emirates on Saturday.

Fleck goal earns Sheffield United a good point

Arsenal had been leading in this clash through Gabriel Martinelli. Mikel Arteta’s side were looking to grind out a vital three points but Fleck put a stop to that.

He equalised for Sheffield United seven minutes from time. A ball across the box found Fleck at the backpost and he drilled the ball into the ground and over Berndt Leno.

It leaves the Blades seventh in the table, remarkably just six points off the top four. It’s great success that has the Bramall Lane side thriving and secure in the English top flight.

One of Steve Clarke’s midfielders has been big for them. He’s played 20 times this campaign, scoring five goals with two assists. Fleck’s in great form and hopefully it continues into his national team’s Euro 2020 play-offs in March.
