Arsenal stunned Burnley with a stoppage-time winner to move into the top four.

The Gunners have made it a hat-trick of added time winners against Sean Dyche’s side.

As expected, it was a difficult game which particularly in the first-half saw Arsene Wenger’s side under the cosh. However, the Gunners road the storm and were much improved in the second.

The drama came in the 91st minute as referee Lee Mason pointed to the spot after adjudging James Tarkowski to have pushed Aaron Ramsey in the back. Alexis Sanchez duly converted to send the travelling Gooners into jubilation.

The result means that Arsenal have leapfrogged local rivals Tottenham into fourth place while Burnley remain seventh.

Take a look at THREE things we learned from the win…

THRICE THE CHARM

Arsenal made it three Premier League stoppage time  winners in a row against the Clarets. In October 2016, Laurent Koscielny controversially scored in added time to seal a 1-0 win. Meanwhile Alexis Sanchez converted a 98th minute penalty in the corresponding fixture in January as the Gunners won 2-1.

They don’t come much better than last minute winners.

SETTLED GLUE AT THE BACK

Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Nacho Monreal are becoming a powerful trio. The three are yet to concede a goal when starting together (five games played).

Mustafi, in particular was impressive. The German took home the man of the match award after making six recoveries, five clearances and three tackles.

BACK IN THE TOP FOUR

The Gunners have now won all six league games in which both Sanchez and Lacazette have started and have now moved into a Champions League spot behind the two Manchester sides and defending champions Chelsea.

It’s Huddersfield Town at home next.
