Arsenal 2 – Burnley 1
Two matches, two wins for Arsenal.
The Gunners followed up their 1-0 win at Newcastle beating Burnley 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang loves playing against the Clarets.
Aubameyang scored yet again against Burnley; his second-half strike proved to be the match-winner.
Earlier in the match, Ashley Barnes continued his superb scoring form just before the break, which canceled out Alexandre Lacazette’s 13th minute opener.
Sean Dyche: Explosive rant against cheating & diving
After the Arsenal game, Burnley manager Sean Dyche took the opportunity to express his thoughts on cheating and diving in the Premier League.
Positioning himself as a lone crusader for justice, Dyche said the following:
It’s not encouraging for the game of football, I’m really worried for the game of football.
People diving all over the place today – it has to go.
I was at a Premier League meeting actually and it was brought up.
Did you know the maximum you can get for a dive is a yellow card?
So for every player in the Premier League they can cheat at least once a game and get nothing other than a yellow.
Ban them. It will be out of football in a month.
I don’t think it will stop, do you? It’s not likely to stop.
Sean Dyche on handballs
The Burnley manager was also critical of a handball decision made against defender Ben Mee.
