Burnley vs Arsenal: Thierry Henry anxious for Gunners at Turf Moor

Burnley vs Arsenal: Thierry Henry anxious for Gunners at Turf Moor

Arsene Wenger declared Arsenal's latest stoppage-time victor against Burnley "a clear penalty" but the decision left opposite number Sean Dyche with a bitter case of deja vu at Turf Moor.

The late, late show meant Arsenal capitalised on rivals Liverpool and Chelsea drawing to each other and Spurs' failure to beat West Brom at Wembley on Saturday. It never found clear sailing at Turf Moor.

Arsenal sit ahead of Burnley in sixth place in the Premier League table only on goal difference, with Sean Dyche's men coming off a run of three wins.

Teams who struggle at Burnley, and there have been many in the past two seasons of Premier League action, often fall back on stereotypes about their style of play.

Arsenal's next fixture is at the Emirates against Huddersfield Town, before meeting Manchester United in North London in a crunch Premier League clash.

Cech made a volleyball style set save on a well-struck Robbie Brady effort in the 39th minute.

Iwobi tweeted through his official handle after the game: "Tough game away from home, but we dug deep till the final whistle". "I thought it was highly unlikely the penalty wasn't going to get given, at that stage, I think you can all make your conclusions from that, working backwards", the Burnley manager fumed. "We had to get more out of ourselves in the second half and I think we did that much better". "I can understand if they are disappointed but from the outside it looked a penalty".

"It was a hard game you know, they play very direct, cross very well and upfront they have players who can score headers".
