Arsenal had to rely on a last-minute Alexis Sanchez penalty this afternoon to beat minnows Burnley at Turf Moor.
The only goal of the game came in the 92nd minute of the match after Aaron Ramsey was fouled in the box. Chilean international Alexis Sanchez then stepped up and slotted the penalty home to allow his side to snatch all three points.
Following the win, Arsene Wenger’s side are now fourth in the Premier League table after Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea dropped points yesterday.
Man of the Match
Arsenal and German international Shkodran Mustafi was world class today, with the former Valencia ace doing everything he could to nullify Burnley’s attacks.
The defender one absolutely everything in the air this afternoon, with the player’s performance going a long to way to helping his side secure all three points at Turf Moor.
This tweet sums up how well the player played today
Mustafi has been outstanding lately. Amazing performance today, bullied Barnes all game. Made a great block too. Playing like the man we paid 35mil for.

This fan can’t help himself from taking a dig at Spurs!
Arsenal's worst season of all time, worst squad ever, talentless manager, players don't want to be there.
Spurs are the greatest team in the history of the world, are going to win the World Cup and their manager shits golden rose petals
Arsenal above Spurs after 13 games.

Life's beautiful when Arsenal wins. Especially in stoppage time
