In the End, it’s the Three Points that Matter
Yesterday’s game was quite frustrating. We have seen the Gunners have sweep teams apart in recent weeks and we might have become spoiled but Burnley gave Arsene Wenger’s men a run for their money.
That was the Gunners third game in eight days and I expect Wenger to at least shuffle things to a bit but it was a case of if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. I might associate things to fatigue but I will also credit Burnley for a resilient defensive performance.
Against the run of play, the home side had the best chances of the game with Sam Vokes heading just wide and Keane clipping the cross bar but there was a moment when Alexis Sanchez had a goalscoring opportunity in the six yard box but he glanced his effort wide.
Late on, the Gunners surged for a late hurrah and had Theo Walcott to thank for a header across the goalmouth that was converted by Laurent Koscielny. It was one of the scrappiest goals you’d ever see but the fans didn’t care. With Arsenal’s fellow title rivals securing wins, it was important to get maximum points in a ground like Turf Moor.
The international break is around the corner, and I’m hoping there would be no injuries.
