Aubameyang Own Goal Gives Burnley 1-0 Victory at Arsenal

Gabonese striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, scored an own goal that handed visiting Burnley a 1-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.

Granit Xhaka was also sent off in the encounter.

The Gunners, who have now lost four straight home games, are in 15th place in the standings with 13 points, while Burnley climbed out of the bottom three, moving up to 17th place on nine points after their first away win of the season.

Mikel Arteta’s side were enjoying a spell of strong pressure after the interval, testing Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, when Xhaka was sent off after a VAR review spotted him grabbing Burnley’s Ashley Westwood by the throat.
