Probably Emery's worst team selection, apparently it's 3 at the back with Elneny playing in the back 3. xD

I think we still win this one but it's going to be a struggle, still trying to work out why Unai has to always play dual 6's in midfield. Get Ramsey in for fuck sake it's Burnley at home!

I think this is the game where Arsenal finally take the lead by half-time.

Lively start to the game. Both keepers making saves to keep it 0-0.

No its actually a 3 man midfield of Elneny, Xhaka and Guendouzi... wow.

Magnificent pick out from Ozil. Hilarious to me that people judge a genius creator like that on his defensive attributes. xD

Yeah, was a great little chip in across to Monreal. Not seen the replays but can't tell if Monreal meant to cross it back across goal or if he picked out Aubameyang deliberately.

WTF going on there?! Barnes and Sokratis going in hard on each other xD 

Looked like Barnes tried to headbutt or bite Sokratis while they were grappling on the floor. 

Madness.

Our defenders just randomly getting injured now. Monreal off for Lichtsteiner.

SUBSTITUTION

Arsenal 1-0 Burnley

Arsenal's defensive injury curse strikes again!

Nacho Monreal cannot continue and has to be replaced by Stephan Lichtsteiner.

That's not the Christmas present Unai Emery wanted!

YELLOW CARD

Arsenal 1-0 Burnley

A proper wrestling match breaks out between Ashley Barnes and Sokratis Papastathopoulos. Both players end up flat out on the ground and referee Kevin Friend stops play to allow tempers to cool.

The result is a booking for Barnes.

Not a great half of football, Sokratis and Barnes wanting to fight each other probablythe highlight but we go into the second half with a lead. Finally.

Thought the goal was good xD 

 

Wonder who will get sent off first. Looks like Sokratis is trying to get Barnes sent off though.

2-0. Aubameyang smashing his 2nd of the game in past Hart.

WTF is Barnes doing?! Did he just stamp on Guendouzi?

Arsenal have been cynical like I've never seen them in terms of trying to get Barnes sent off.

Lucky to avoid a penalty and then not to be see anything for Guendouzi's dive.

Kevin Friend has to be one of the worst refs in the league I think. Unbelievably lenient.

2-1!

Barnes, who shouldn't even be on the pitch, gets a goal back for Burnley.

 Such a shit goal for Arsenal to concede. Poor defending. So scrappy.
