English Premier League giant Burnley close the gap with Chelsea when they scored a winner in the final minute when they met rivals Burnley last week.

The Gunners were expected to finish the game off early on paper but it was a real struggle for the side as they almost shared a point each with the visitors whilst at home.

Burnley have a terrible away record this term and with Arsenal’s recent performances many expected the team to win comfortably but the reverse was the case. After Southampton dumped champions Leicester City easily 3-0 at home, Arsenal played next, with a series of other ongoing game on Saturday, but the struggled.

Going into the game Alexis Sanchez was over 60 percent to score first at the Emirates according to bookies but the Chile international scored the penalty that separated both sides in the final minute as two late penalty turned the game into a dramatic second half affair.

The first half had ended 0-0 with the league new entrants not being easy pushovers. The second half was very different from the first as things got quickly heated up.

Granit Xhaka picked up a red card, one of the players with a bad record this term. Coach Arsene Wenger pushed a fourth official after he was sent to the stands as he could not handle the thought of losing of playing a draw at home to Burnley.

After Shrkodan Mustafi got the opener from a setpiece but Andre Gray equalized from the spot before a foul on Laurent Koscielny allowed Arsenal keep their record of victories against Burnley.

Burnley stood no chance against their host historically. The only good thing in the record was that Eduardo da Silva’s super strike remained the best goal ever between the meetings of both sides. Andre Arshavin’s goal in 2010 comes close as well. Sean Dyche’s men were pained by the last loss but would be happy with their spirited performance.
