We bring you the best Opta stats from Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Burnley.

Arsenal moved further clear of the two Manchester clubs in second place, and kept the pressure up on leaders Chelsea, as Aaron Ramey's goal ensured a slender 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Here are the top five statistics from Saturday's encounter:

1 - Arsenal have now won eight successive Premier League games for the first time since March 2004 (a run of nine games).

2 - Burnley have now failed to score in five of their last six league matches, netting one against Manchester City in the other.

4 - Aaron Ramsey continued his rich vein of form against the Clarets. The Welshman has now been involved in five goals in his last four Premier League games (scored two, assisted three).

5 - Five Arsenal players completed more passes against Burnley than any other Premier League managed this weekend - Santi Cazorla (77), Hector Bellerin (70) and Mesut Ozil (68) leading the way.
