Arsenal secured the win today thanks to an injury-time penalty, and Burnley will be aggrieved after a hard-fought display.
The Gunners started the game as second-best, Enduring a tough opening 15 minutes in which we could easily have found ourselves 2-0 down, but we rode our luck and managed to get ourselves into the game.
Johann Gudmundssen had the best opportunity in the first-half, forcing Petr Cech to push his shot onto the post, and alarm bells were ringing from this point onwards.
Aaron Ramsey had the best of our chances before the interval, with Alexandre Lacazette finding him with a curling cross only for the Welshman to fail to steer the ball on goal.
At half-time you could feel that it wasn’t going to be our day, with our rivals forcing us to take many shots from outside the box, but thankfully we many to come through at the end.
Aaron Ramsey was brought down inside the box in the dying moments of the game, and referee Lee Mason didn’t let us down for the second time in the match, and Alexis Sanchez didn’t need to be told twice. The Chilean slotted the ball away to the keepers right hand side, and with keeping the ball low made the save all too difficult.
The referee should have granted us another penalty earlier in the second-half also, and would no doubt have been the talking point had we not come away with the victory, as Hector Bellerin had his legs taken away from him well inside the box.
The 1-0 win pushes up inside the top four for the first time this season, leapfrogging Tottenham and Liverpool in the race to secure Champions League football.
Did Burnley deserve more out of the match considering their performance? Have Arsenal now turned the corner with only their second away win of the season?
