Burnley

0 - 1
Arsenal
90'+3' L. Koscielny
...

Arsene Wenger's men came away with all 3 points after a last gasp " header " from Laurent Koscielny. The Gunners huffed and puffed all game but hardly created an opening against an extremely resolute Burnley defence.

The highlight of the first half was Mustafi confronting the referee over Sam Vokes' physicality with 1 chance on target in the entire half.
Thes second half was much of the same as Arsenal pressed on for a goal while Burnley held strong. Alexis hit the post midway through the second half which was followed by a Keane effort which also hit the crossbar. 

In the end, it was a corner in the 93rd minute which was bundled home by Koscielny with slight help from his arm. Burney were left devastated with the decision to award the goal but they will have to pick themselves up for the next game.
The win takes Arsenal to within 2 points of league leaders Manchester City.
Thanks for joining us. goodnight.

FT Burnley 0-1 Arsenal

...

Final whistle blows. Arsenal have snatched 3 points with the last kick of the game

...

92' Arsenal take the corner short. Alexis delivers it to the far post where Chamberlain strikes it onto Koscielny's face and it ends up in the back of the net. On replays it appeared to have come off his arm. The goal is given and Arsenal have done it

...

Gooooooooalllll for Arsenal. koscielny

...

92' Late corner for Arsenal. Chamberlain's strike is blocked by Hendrick

...

We will have just 2 minutes of added time

...

89' Desperate defending again from the Clarets as Ben Mee puts in a last-ditch block on a Theo Walcott effort. 

...

85' Walcoottt!!! Inches wide

Sanchez does brilliantly to drive at the Burnley defence and finds Walcott in acres of space. he tries a curler into the top corner and it flies just wide of Heaton's far post

...

83' Here's a stat for all it's worth. Arsenal have completed 620 passes to Burnley's 327

...

81' Still nothing to talk about as Arsenal continue to search for a way past Sean Dyche's men

...

77' Free kick for Arsenal. Ozil steps and tries to curl it into the top corner but it strikes the wall and danger is averted

...

75' Keane hits the post

This time Burnley have a corner which is taken by Gudmundsson. Keane powers a brilliant header which comes off the crossbar with Cech beaten

...

73' Sanchez hits the post.

Corner for Arsenal. Cazorla trots up to take. He plays it to Elneney whose strike is deflected for another corner. Same again by Cazorla. This time a cross drops down to Sanchez whose shot comes off the post. So close for the Gunners

...

71' Double change for Arsenal as Elneny and Oxlade-Chamberlain come on for Iwobi and Xhaka

...

70' Great play by Koscielny as he wins the ball near the halfway line. He finds Sanchez who plays in Walcott and his shot flies wide of the post. Poor from Theo

...

69' Oxlade-Chamberlain warming up on the bench. The Englishman is Arsenal's only attacking option on the bench with Giroud and Lucas out injured

...

67' Pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass. Pass pass pass pass pass.

...

66' No movement from Arsenal at the moment. All their play is in front of the Burnley backline and they have been untroubled for most of the part

...

62' Burnley make the first change. Scott Arfield replaces Defour

...

60' Great save by Cech

Gudmundsson delivers a great ball into the box where Vokes is there to meet it. Cech ,however, stops it from nestling in the bottom corner with a brilliant save

...

58' Chance for Ozil

Iwobi again with space on the left. He picks out Ozil whose shot is brilliantly blocked by Mee. More frustration for the Gunners

...

56' Still no change for Arsenal. Maybe it's time to see Chamberlain brought on

...
Wenger is not happy with his side's performance so far

Wenger is not happy with his side's performance so far

...

53' All hands on deck for Burnley as Arsenal again try to pass their way through the defence. Again Ozil mis-controls and danger is averted

...

52' Hendrick with an optimistic effort
Burnley's new signing decided to try his luck from 40 yards but it flies into the top tier of the stadium

...

50' Great save by Heaton

Bellerin scrappily finds some space n the box and feeds it to Alexis who fires powerfully towards the bottom corner. Heaton meets it with an outstretched arm and keeps it out. First real chance for the Gunners

...

49' Shout for a penalty as Walcott takes a tumble under pressure from Keane. nothing doing says the ref and they play on

...

48' Half Chance for Burnley

Gudmundsson surges down the right and delivers a pin point cross into the box. Vokes tries to volley home but miskicks horribly. Decent chance for the hosts

...

46' More of the same from both sides as Arsenal attack down the left but lose possession cheaply and Boyd comes away with the ball

...

We are back for the second half and Arsenal get us underway 

...

It's half time at Turf Moor. Easily the most boring game of the day sees an Arsenal side huffing and puffing but unable to conjure a shot on target against a dogged Burnley side. Can Arsene Wenger's men break the deadlock in the second half? Join us in 10 minutes

...

44' Again Monreal and Ozil try to break in from the left and again they are thwarted by Keane and Mee

...

42' What am I seeing here? Another misplaced pass by the Gunners. This time it's Sanchez who is the culprit. Burnley come away with the ball

...

39' Great chance for Burnley

Matthew Lowton feeds a ball into the box and an unmarked Vokes heads it way wide of the post. What a chance for the Clarets to take the lead

...

37' Iwobi tries to inject some pace into the Arsenal play and strides forward before feeding Walcott who plays in Bellerin. The SPaniard's cross is awful and headed clear by Keane

...

34' A game for no-one at the moment. Both teams have gifted the other possession in what has been a truly awful game to watch

...

33' The Gunners have been relatively poor tonight. They have been unable to find the form they showed against Basel and Chelsea but that could be down to Burnley's game plan

...

32' Corner for Arsenal. They decide to take it short and Cazorla's through ball finds the feet of a Burnley defender who clears with ubsurd ease

...

30' Frustration building for Wenger's men as a sloppy pass from Mustafi goes out into touch
