Burnley holds Arsenal in EPL
March 7, 2021 8:00 am
Burnley put on some heroic defending in the Premier League last night to hold Arsenal to a 1-all draw.
Amid a dramatic late onslaught, Granit Xhaka’s error ultimately cost the Gunners after his errant pass struck Chris Wood for a bizarre equalizer to cancel out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener.
Arsenal piled on relentless pressure in the closing stages but it was not enough to give them the win.
A fifth successive home draw inches 15th-placed Burnley seven points clear of the Premier League bottom three.
Arsenal remains in 10th position with their hopes of a late push for European qualification hindered by two dropped points.
