Arsenal 3-1 Burnley

In the end, it was a hard-fought win at the Emirates, despite the two-goal cushion.

Vieira's reckless challenge meant a red card and an early bath for the substitute, who had made little impact during his short time on the pitch as Havertz's replacement. The fans are supporting Vieira for now, but there are concerns about his suitability in this team. This sending-off will not enhance his reputation.

Luckily, Trossard's man-of-the-match performance ensured Arsenal won all three points. His corner from the left was nodded in by Saliba to restore the Gunners' lead, after Burnley equalised with a deflected Brownhill effort.

To make the game safe, Zinchenko hooked in the third with a scissor kick and Arsenal must have felt home and dry.

There are more injuries for Arsenal to worry about now: Martinelli limped off with a suspected hamstring problem and Jorginho sustained a head injury. With Vieira's suspension too, the resources of the squad will be stretched to the maximum.
