Arsenal go top of the Premier League on a temporary basis and at the end of the day, two wins from two games and maximum points is a good start to the season but the team definitely remains a work in progress.
First, the positives, Dani Ceballos was brilliant, what a breath of fresh air he is, Aubameyang was as clinical as ever and Pepe showed some excellent touches when he came on for the second half, his nutmeg on Ben Mee was an absolute beauty
Burnley was fairly predictable throughout but they caused problems and at times looked dangerous but in all honesty, Arsenal really should have handled them with ease but they did not.
The defence continues to be a huge issue, Burnley’s equaliser was a joke and David Luiz has to take responsibility for his part in the goal. The Brazilian was far from assured today.
The midfield, Ceballos apart, were poor, they are just too static and need to offer more, especially when it comes to helping out the defence.
To some degree, Arsenal was lucky their opponents were Burnley today because this was not a convincing performance and against one of their top-six rivals they would have struggled based on this display.
The team is clearly unbalanced, brilliant upfront, mediocre in midfield and poor in defence.
That said, Arenal won, they sit at the top of the Premier League and a win is a win, even if it was a bit laborious and in Ceballos and Pepe they have at least two new signings that are top quality.
