Arsenal managed to close in on the gap with a last minute winner from Laurent Koscienly.
From the start of the game, some of our players looked out of form, misplacing passes and not doing enough as to creating chances.
We were without Perez, who picked up an injury before the game – this meant Alexis Sanchez was our only striker but he was not able to replicate his recent form.
Arsenal fans have been reacting on social media about the performance of the boys. This is what they had to say.
Mustafi was my man of the match. Absolutely outstanding
7 ball recoveries
9 headed clearances
2 interceptions #afc

Arsène Wenger: "It was a difficult game. Burnley was very organised defensively but we lacked some edge." #afc

Not a pretty goal sure. But definitely legal to score with a hand as long as not deliberate. #AFC

Kos on the goal, "I didn't see it." Learning from Wenger. 😂😂😂 #afc

Elation at the lads getting the last minute win would have been nice from Henry, instead came across as gutted on Sky #Afc

Didn't play well but kept battling & nicked a win….on a day when Utd & City both tripped up.
Well done, chaps. #afc
