Deja vu as late Arsenal penalty sinks Burnley

Deja vu as late Arsenal penalty sinks Burnley

Interestingly, the length of the pass or cross of headed goals scored for Arsenal is shorter than all other Premier League teams which perhaps pays testament to Wenger's intricate style of play, where the likes of Alexandre Lacazette nodded in his debut goal from a small Mohamed Elneny cross and Mesut Ozil has scored against Everton this season via a deft Alexis Sanchez effort.

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 Gunners won their last Premier League outing, a 2-0 victory in the north London derby against Tottenham, but were beaten 1-0 by Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday.

"It looked from the outside like a clear penalty", said the Frenchman. With those calls you have to be 100%, which I assume the referee was. "Three times involving referee moments".

"I haven't seven seen him", said the Arsenal boss, as quoted by the Metro. That Arsenal's likeliest candidate was centre-half Shkodran Mustafi says plenty about the way they did business.

The fourth official signalled there would be two minutes of stoppage time: two minutes to keep their heads, hold firm and frustrate another of the Premier League's heavyweights. It never found clear sailing at Turf Moor. For the most part he was too ready to blow at the slightest hint of contact, but there was a baffling thread of inconsistency which seemed to count against the Clarets.

Burnley went even closer to taking a first-half lead when Johann Berg Gudmundsson's shot was pushed on to a post by Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech. This time some Gudmundsson trickery bought a yard and he crossed towards the lurking Ashley Barnes.

Alex Iwobi started in Ozil's place and was later replaced by Jack Wilshere.
