Arsenal v Burnley - Premier League
Arsenal's strikeforce for the next season looks exciting

Arsene Wenger's last game at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal manager ended on a positive note, with his team securing a strong 5-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday (May 6). It was a goal fest for the home side, who put in a dynamic attacking performance.

Goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac, Alex Iwobi, and a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw the hosts run riot against Sean Dyche's side.

Here are three things Arsenal did right on the day:

#3 Playing both the strikers

It is clear that Aubameyang and Lacazette are at their best when they play with each other.

They create chances, they get opportunities to score, and they look threatening going forward. Yesterday, the Frenchman donned the role of the striker, whereas Aubameyang was shifted to the wings.

However, both the players kept exchanging their positions once the game began, and that was on display in Arsenal's first goal of the night, where a cross from the right flank from Lacazette resulted in a strike by the Gabon international, who was in the penalty box at the time.

Lacazette was taken off in the 71st minute with one goal and one assist to his name, while Aubameyang played the entire game, adding two goals and one assist.
