Arsenal vs Burnley LIVE: Result, final score and reaction tonight

Mikel Arteta’s side have endured a largely miserable start to the campaign, taking just 13 points from their opening 11 games, and currently languish in 15th place. A clinical defeat by Tottenham in the north London derby epitomised Arteta’s greatest problems, with Arsenal struggling to create anything of note in attack despite boasting the majority of possession as captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal drought continues. 

Meanwhile, Burnley are staring down the barrel of a relegation battle, having won just one of their opening 10 games. Sean Dyche’s side are desperately short on firepower, scoring just five goals so far this season, and should, at least in theory, represent the perfect opponents for Arsenal to open up against and rediscover their attacking verve.

75 mins: This is disastrous for Arsenal. Mikel Arteta takes Bellerin off and brings on Maitland-Niles. Short of goals at one end and Aubameyang goes and scores at the other. Sod’s law isn’t it.

72 mins: This doesn’t look good for Arsenal. Burnley are set up for the corner and Elneny squares up to Tarkowski with his back to the ball and he shoves the Burnley man in the face. VAR takes a look and he avoids a red card but picks up a yellow.

Arsenal 0 – 0 Burnley

72 mins: Chris Wood is taken off by Sean Dyche with Matej Vydra coming on. Ashley Barnes is also on the pitch having replaced Jay Rodriguez a few minutes ago. 

Bellerin slides into a tackle on Charlie Taylor and picks up a yellow. That means he gets a suspension for five yellows this season. He makes up for it though by heading the free kick out of play.

A long ball forward from Gabriel falls for Aubameyang who’s run in behind. He gets into the box and tries to chip it over Pope who sticks out a right hand and saves it.
