Arsenal sealed all three points at Turf Moor after an away performance which showed all the steel of a team chasing down the Premier League title.
Here’s how the Gunners rated in their impressive away win at the relegation fighters:
David Ospina – 6
Not tested much throughout the game against a side who played with 10 men behind the ball, hoping to steal a goal or two on the break. Trippier’s free-kick could have troubled him, but the Colombian stood firm.
Nacho Monreal – 7
Did everything which was asked of him in one of the more physical tests he will have faced throughout the season. Never put a foot wrong all game.
Laurent Koscielny – 6
The Frenchman was touch and go to start the game with concerns over injury and he did well to come through the full 90 minutes against a bustling Burnley side.
Per Mertesacker – 6
Made plenty of interceptions and blocks to make sure Burnley came away from the game goalless and frustrated.
Hector Bellerin – 5
His one-on-one defending leaves a little to be desired, though it’s entirely likely that it will come with age. His bursts down the right flank were impressive, but more typical of a winger.
