Hello and welcome to Burnley v Arsenal – a game that, on recent form, may not be brimming on goals but should be big on action. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s lone goal and Burnley’s single point have been the extent of spluttering starts but both will fancy a good result. Turf Moor is hardly the ideal place to go for a struggling side, but Burnley are winless in 12 at home and Mikel Arteta really needs to make sure his team is bagging maximum points. Team news coming your way soon.

FINAL WHISTLE: The final whistle goes and wonderful free kick the difference between the teams. Burnley will be aggrieved they let that one go in because they were probably worth the draw.
90'+3
Arsenal struggle to clear their decks and the ball is whipped back in. Rodriguez meets it, but it was never really close. It may have been their last chance.
90'+2
YELLOW CARD: Nuno Tavares is booked. He seems happy to take it if it eats a few seconds. He then shoots from 40 yards. More seconds eaten up.
90'+1
A deft flick form Vydra at the near post has Ramsdale scrambing. So close. But the quality of the final ball and shooting has been lacking.
90'
A big Burnley cross from the left is met with a bigger shout from Aaron Ramsdale as he claims. Four minutes to play.
88'
Burnley slowing down in this final minutes and a rare foray ends with a weak shot. Arsenal just trying to see things out and keep possession with the goal scorer.
86'
The final moments of the game and Odegaard's 29th minute goal is the difference. Expect some substantial added time for the VAR check though.
84'
Arsenal are starting to soak up the sting of the game with some possession in midfield.

McNeil shoots from a tough angle. He didn't really have any other choice and the shot is tame.
75'
Burnley have been invigorated by Maxwel Cornet's running and invention. He promises to be a real injection of flair for this side.
69'
NO PENALTY: VAR decides that there was no contact between Ramsdale and Vydra. Burnley fans will disagree. Vydra will say he was avoiding injury, otherwise he risks looking a little silly.

PENALTY CHECK: Matej Vydra goes down in the box and VAR are making the call...

This game, and the midfield, is opening up. Pepe picks up the ball and runs at Burnley, but his pass is behind Saka whose cross is stamped out.
59'
Maxwel Cornet almost makes an immediate impact with a first time shot towards the top corner of Arsenal's goal. The crowd go up, but Ramsdale was probably comfortable.
