The Fallout: Arsenal 2-1 Burnley highlights and reaction as Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang make it two wins from two for the Gunners

Every angle of Arsenal's victory covered in one place as BTSport.com provides the best of the match action, exclusive interviews with managers and players, pundit analysis, social media reaction and much, much more.

Goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it two wins from two for Arsenal as they battled to a hard-fought victory over Burnley.

Lacazette opened the scoring when he held off the challenge of Erik Pieters to net from close range but Arsenal were pegged back before half time when Ashley Barnes capped off a Burnley breakaway.

Aubameyang had the final say though, beating Nick Pope with a rasping long-range effort to score his seventh goal in four games against The Clarets and secure all three points for Unai Emery’s men.

Man of the match

Two assists and a Man of the Match award, home debuts don’t come much better than Dani Ceballos’ for Arsenal against Burnley.

Ceballos barely put a foot wrong all game, initially starring alongside Matteo Guendouzi in a two-man midfield before pushing further forward as Arsenal went in search of a winner.

The on-loan Real Madrid midfielder was always probing, always looking to pick holes in Burnley’s defensive ranks.

He was comfortable with both feet and able to dribble out of trouble before picking a pass, setting up both Lacazette and Aubameyang’s goals.

A performance that brought back memories of the much-loved Santi Cazorla, the Spaniard’s wild celebrations when Aubameyang scored the winner will have further endeared himself to the Emirates faithful.

"He was absolutely fantastic, he showed his quality and desire." - Martin Keown

Pundits' verdicts

Cole lavishes praise on debutant Ceballos

Cole was full of praise for new Arsenal signing Ceballos after the young midfielder provided two assists on his competitive debut at the Emirates.

Tweet of the game

Arsenal’s deadline day acquisition David Luiz is a doppelgänger for Matteo Guendouzi – leaving many struggling to distinguish between the pair.

 

Picture of the game

Aubameyang celebrated Arsenal’s winner and his seventh goal in four matches against The Clarets in trademark style.

Fans' view

Jonathan Spencer, Arsenal fan: “It wasn’t a great performance but you have to accept six points.

“The brightest part of the display was Ceballos. When he’s on the ball you trust him to keep it.

“Pepe looked really good, he needs to get up to speed with Aubameyang and Lacazette but we needed a player who is direct and capable of taking defenders away from home.

“The only negative about Emery is he’s very conservative when holding on to the lead but we don’t have the defence to do it. We have the players up top who can damage teams and make it 3-1, 4-1.”

VAR watch

Burnley’s first-half equaliser was checked for offside but VAR showed that there was no infringement from goalscorer Barnes.

Minutes later, Reiss Nelson thought he had restored Arsenal’s lead but VAR showed that Nacho Monreal was marginally offside in the build-up.

Key stats

  • Arsenal have won their last 10 Premier League games against Burnley – they have only enjoyed a longer run against Man City (11 between 1994 and 2004), also winning 10 against Newcastle United between 2012 and 2017.
     
  • Only Sadio Mané (14) and Sergio Aguero (13) have scored more Premier League goals in 2019 than Burnley’s Ashley Barnes (12 - level with Jamie Vardy).
