Arsenal’s dreadful Premier League run has slipped down to new depths as Mikel Arteta’s 10 men lost 1-0 at home to Burnley.
This result will only ramp up the growing pressure on Arteta in the weeks ahead as the Spaniard has picked up just one league win in two months.
The Gunners struggled to get into any sort of rhythm in the first half as Rob Holding nodded over and Alexandre Lacazette brilliantly tested Nick Pope.
Arteta looked to have rattled a few cages during the break at the Emirates as Pope was called into quick action to deny Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
But just as the hosts looked to be edging themselves towards breakthrough, Granit Xhaka’s brain fart derailed their efforts.
The Swiss international tangled with Ashley Westwood before losing his head and grabbing the Clarets man by the throat as Graham Scott flashed a red card.
Arsenal looked to cling on from there as Burnley smelt blood in the closing stages.
But it wasn’t to be as Arteta’s miserable was completed as Aubameyang flicked home from a corner………….but unfortunately for the Gunners skipper it was at the wrong end.
Full Time at the Emirates Stadium it’s Arsenal 0 Burnley 1
