Arsenal end PL season on a high

Unai Emery’s men travelled to Turf Moor earlier today, for their final Premier League outing of the season.

Arsenal headed into the matchup aware that they would need a miracle to leapfrog North London rivals Tottenham into the top-4, after a dismal run of form which had seen the Gunners pick up just a solitary point from their last 4 league fixtures.

As such, with the capital giants having secured their place in the Europa League final on Thursday night, Emery opted to rest a number of his side’s key players this afternoon:

Nevertheless, though, despite their weakened line-up, Arsenal went on to pick up an impressive 3-1 victory.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang notched a brace within the opening 20 minutes of the second-half, before Ashley Barnes quickly pulled one back for Burnley.

The visitors, though, stood firm, before making sure of all 3 points courtesy of Eddie Nketiah’s injury-time strike.
