Burnley vs Arsenal: Confirmed lineups – Shock as Mesut Ozil dropped from squad

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has suggested that the late win over Burnley on Sunday was "more" important than beating Tottenham in the north London derby clash last weekend.

Burnley have now lost just two Premier League games all season. It never found clear sailing at Turf Moor.

Iwobi has scored a goal in seven league games this season and will be hoping to help the Gunners continue their 13-game unbeaten home run since January 31 when they welcome Huddersfield Town for Wednesday's Premier League fixture.

Jack Wilshere's substitution proved entertaining, with the English midfielder's hard shot providing an unsuccessful Arsenal corner in the 80th minute. We all know that it's not going to be easy.


Petr Cech needed to perform well between the sticks, and stretched to push Robbie Brady's sweeping free-kick to safety.

"Burnley played well in the first half and put pressure on us". "I thought it was highly unlikely the penalty wasn't going to get given, at that stage, I think you can all make your conclusions from that, working backwards", the Burnley manager fumed.

"In the second half it was a question of the final ball and patience, not making a mistake at the back". "In the first half we didn't find our game and they stopped us from playing very well", he said.

"For me they need to back up what they did against Tottenham the other day. They cross very well and up front they have some players who can score headers, so it was very hard".
