Arsenal take all three points in the 97th minute to move up to second in the table. Arsenal took the lead through a Mustafi header. Xhaka then saw a straight red for a two footed lunge not long after. Things then got worst for Arsenal after Coquelin gave away a 93rd minute which meant Burnley levelled the match. However, Arsenal won a penalty in the 97th minute which Sanchez subsequently, scored.

Cech – 6 – Pulled off a few saves but should have done better with the penalty.

Gabriel – 7 – Solid at right back and defended well throughout the match.

Mustafi – 7 – Scored the opener with his first goal for the club. Wasn’t at his best the first half but looked more comfortable in the second.

Koscielny – 7 – Won the penalty and defended well throughout against the dangerous Gray.

Monreal – 7 – Defended well for large parts of the game as Gray tried to exploit his side.

Xhaka – 6 – Was having a good game until the red card. Needs to improve his decision making.

Ramsey – 7 – Had a good game in the centre and looked dangerous when going forward.

Iwobi – 7 – Tried to penetrate the Burnley backline all game and looked like he would create an opening.

Ӧzil – 8 - Was excellent throughout and looked like he was going to create all afternoon. Got an assist for the opening goal.

Sanchez – 7 – Was always looking to score a goal and calmly scored a cheeky penalty.

Giroud -7- Didn’t score today but his general play was good throughout.


Coquelin – 6 – Gave away the penalty but had to try and anchor the midfield after going down to ten men.

Welbeck – N/A –  Didn’t have much time to influence the game.  

Bellerin – N/A – Didn’t have much time to influence the game.  

Overall, it wasn’t a bad performance but Arsenal will be relieved after a fortunate win. Xhaka must become better in his decision making or he will become a liability like I suggested in my ratings versus Liverpool. Anyway it was an important win after results went our way yesterday.

The refs have been cheating Arsenal for 10 years. If the ref gave a penalty for the fault on Mustafi we wouldn't have to label Moss as the cheat that he is. Only Mike Oliver and refs of his caliber should ref in a top league as the EPL. These scum low life incompetent referees diminish the quality of this league. EPL has the worst referees on the planet.Time to drain the swamp and bring in new refs that can actually referee.

If we had scored the goals this team is apparently capable of we wouldn't of needed to worry about Burnleys penalty and Wenger wouldn't of yet again made a *** of himself kicking off about a penalty he couldn't possibly have seen. However, strangely enough a touch line ban may help us cos Bouldy will now be relieved of his vow of silence and the team may get some proper guidance not the Basil Fawlty arm flapping from Wenger,
