It was a good all-round effort from Arsenal, but the heroes of the day mostly came from the defensive side of the team, who managed to keep Burnley at bay for the whole 90 minutes…
Another assured display from the Colombian under the aerial theat from Burnley. A clean sheet says it all…
Not quite as good defensively as usual but he showed his pace and attacking qualities going forward. He’s looking more like a winger nowadays…
Very solid against the Burnley strikers and even outshone Koscielny on the day. His height came in very handy for once…
Wenger was forced to play Koscielny due to Gabriels absence, but he really looked like he needed a rest at times. He made a few unforced errors..
Another good shift by the Spaniard and he certainly deserves to keep Gibbs out of the team for now. Not much gets past him..
Le Coq is the gift that just keeps giving! He put in another awesome display and kept Burnley from getting too close to the defence on numerous occasions.
It was a very strange decision by Wenger to play the Welshman on the wing again, where he has had some of his worst performances, but his goal salvaged an average performance. Walcott has definitely upset Le Boss!
Not at his best but was given very little room to manoeuvre so spent most of his time helping out the defence. Had a couple of shots but definitely not up to his usual standard.
Mesut is often accused of going missing when there is a fight to be had, but he stood up to be counted today. Was involved in the goal and created a few more chances that were not converted.
The game was played much too deep for the Frenchmn and he rarely looked like scoring for the seventh game in row, but he defended well in is own half. The Burnley defence had little problem keeping him out of the game.
Always a threat and his industriousness was there for all to see. He was a thorn in Burnleys side throughout but the end product was rarely forthcoming. The goals are looking few and far between nowadays
Looked lively when he came on and made the tired Burnley defenders work hard. Nearly doubled our lead but was just wide of the mark.
90th minute time wasting by Wenger
