Arsenal needed a controversial winner to get past Burnley

Twitter went wild as Arsenal stole three points at Turf Moor with an injury time winner against Burnley. The Clarets were superb in defence for much of the game, but suffered heart-break as Laurent Koscielny scored a controversial winner in injury time, which meant Arsenal go back to London with a 1-0 win.

The pattern of the game was set right from the off, with Arsenal controlling most of the ball, but Burnley sitting deep and defending. The Clarets did have a couple of big chances, but looked to have earned a draw having held out until injury time. However, Arsenal took a last minute corner short, with Walcott flicking on the cross, with Koscielny kicking the ball onto his arm and bundling it into the net with the final kick of the game.

Arsenal fans on Twitter reacted in joy as the Gunners earned a lucky three points:
