Arsenal recorded their eighth consecutive league win to move to within four points of league leaders Chelsea. No team has won that many games on the bounce this season and the form team may make the title race more interesting.
Aaron Ramsey grabbed the winner after a number of attempts at goal.
Here is how the Gunners rated.
GK) David Ospina – 7
Had little to do all game but when called into action, was calm and efficient.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 7
Continues to impress down the right and with Ramsey in front of him, was Arsenal’s main outlet down the right.
CB) Per Mertesacker – 8
Sensational performance from the skipper and apart from an early moment which scared the visitors, was fantastic positionally.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 8
Played Burnley’s front two very well, the hosts knock-down tactic was snuffed out impeccably. Won all of his aerial duels too.
LB) Nacho Monreal – 7
Another solid display from the Spaniard which is bad news for Kieran Gibbs. Arsenal’s back four produced a mature performance.
