Arsenal made it back-to-back Premier League wins as they dug in to claim a 1-0 win at Burnley thanks to Martin Odegaard’s first-half free-kick.

Simon Collings was at Turfmoor to see Arsenal in action...

Aaron Ramsdale 8

A performance that will go a long way to help his bid to become Arsenal No1. Excellent coming for crosses and made some fine saves.

Takehiro Tomiyasu 8

Given this was his second game for the club, it was a strong showing from the Japan international. Dealt well with Burnley’s direct approach.

Ben White 6

A real mixed bag of a game from the 23-year-old. He started shaky, then improved, but he then almost gave a penalty away with a woeful back pass.

Gabriel 8 | Star man

A big game from the Brazilian, who seemed to relish the battle of playing Burnley. Made one huge tackle in the first-half to deny Ashley Barnes.

Kieran Tierney 7

Couldn’t get forward as much as he would usually like to, but he was defensively solid. Forced to come off late on with what looked like cramp.

Emile Smith Rowe 5

Struggled early on and moved out left for a bit. Worked his socks off and almost scored when played in by Aubameyang.

Thomas Partey 6

Made a couple of vital blocks as Arsenal were digging in. Still doesn’t look fully fit yet. Passing was off at times.

Martin Odegaard 8

Arsenal’s best attacking player. Scored a brilliant free-kick and looked the most likely to open Burnley up.

Nicolas Pepe 5

A frustrating afternoon for the Ivorian. On more than one occasion he did all the hard work, but failed with the final ball.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 5

Not the sort of game he likes, but did his best to try and help the team. Like Pepe, his play was lacking just that cutting edge.

Bukayo Saka 6

Did well to win the free-kick for the goal, but he was sub par compared to his usual level. Perhaps still a little tired or jaded after the Euros?

Substitutions

Albert Sambi Lokonga (Smith Rowe 61’) 6

Came on and did a solid job. Got stuck in and had the bottle to take the ball off the back-four.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Partey 75’) N/A

Nuno Tavares (Tierney 78’) N/A

Subs not used: Leno, Lacazette, Holding, Cedric, Pablo Mari, Martinelli.
