Arsenal 3 - 1 Burnley…

Another great win for @Arsenal   

Ok, it was only Burnley. But we can’t afford to slip up against these sorts of teams and when it came down to it, the win was actually hard-fought for.   (Unlike Sp*rs whose delightful turnover against Wolves set us up beautifully just prior to our 3pm KO!)  

And, yes, we conceded one (albeit a deflection) but our three goals were great.   

First there was Trossard’s brave nod in (Arsenal's 1,000th goal at Emirates Stadium.) Then Saliba headed in Trossard's corner from point-blank range. And finally Zinchenko completed the scoring with an acrobatic finish into the top corner after O'Shea had inadvertently steered another Trossard corner onto the crossbar.  

Yes, as you might have guessed, Trossard was my man of the match.   

The only sour note perhaps was Fabio Vieira being sent off late on. No one argued. Poor challenge.   

Arsenal are now joint top with City on all but goal difference.   

A great meet-up beforehand with @gaygooners along with some super lovely folks from Arsenal America too.  Hello Cam! Hello Scott! Hello César!
