Emirates Outside Night

Arsenal made it three wins in a row in all competitions after a 3-0 win over Burnley this afternoon.

After a 0-0 draw with Hull City in October, Arsenal fans were rightly concerned about the club's inauspicious start to the season.

Yet Arsene Wenger's side have turned around, with today's 3-0 win over Burnley their third in a row in all competitions after beating Anderlecht and Sunderland.

Today, the Gunners took a little longer than expected to break down struggling Burnley, with Sean Dyche's side remaining winless in the Premier League despite looking dangerous on the counter attack at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal ended the first half in the ascendancy and tested goalkeeper Tom Heaton a number of times, but had to wait until the 70th minute to make the breakthrough, with summer signing Alexis Sanchez opening the scoring.

A demoralised Burnley were on the ropes and when Calum Chambers scored just two minutes later, the game was effectively over.

Sanchez added a third from close range in the 90th minute, and the result takes Arsenal up into fourth place, but stay nine points behind leaders Chelsea.

For Burnley, they remain bottom of the table and without a win in the first ten games of the season, with the Clarets already looking in trouble.
