Arsenal’s Defeat By Burnley Continued To Sink, Xhaka Shut Down Due To Strangulation


Arsenal dominated from the very beginning of the match, especially in the first half when they had possession of the ball of almost 70 percent with several great opportunities to score. On the other hand, Burnley only occasionally crossed the center so there were no goals after the first 45 minutes.

The moment that may have solved the question of the winner happened in the 58th minute when Granit Xhaka was sent off. The Swiss-made a really amazing move and started strangling Ashley Westwood in front of the referee of this match, Graham Scott. Scott saw everything with his own eyes and at a distance of one meter, but decided to watch VAR and then exclude the midfielder of the home team.

It was played openly on both sides, and Arsenal, despite the player less, still held possession of the ball. We also saw a lot of chances, and Burnley came to victory with an own goal by Aubameyang.

Arsenal remained in 15th place in the Premiership with just 13 points scored from 12 games, while Burnley overtook Fulham and are now in 17th place.

Result and scorer:

Arsenal – Burnley 0: 1 (Aubameyang 73 ‘own goal)
