Arsenal had lost their first three games of the season, but they snapped their losing streak with a victory against Norwich City last week, and they will now be confident heading into next week’s North London derby with Tottenham.
“It was a hard-fought win in a very difficult environment.” “You must be prepared to battle,” Arteta added. “In this kind of game, we have guys that are not at their best, but they gave it their all and we won.” I’m extremely proud of their defense, and I’m thrilled with the victory.
“It’s two clean sheets in a row and two victories in a row. Let’s try it again. We have a lot of ground to make up “he said
Thomas Partey earned his first start for Arsenal this season, and his presence behind Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe gave Arteta’s midfield a more balanced appearance.
After excellent work down the left by Kierney, Nicolas Pepe had the opening opportunity of the game, but the winger was unable to make the most of the pass into the near post.

Sean Dyche’s side struggled to establish any rhythm, with Chris Wood’s header going wide after he was left unmarked in the area.
After Bukayo Saka’s heels were pinched by Ashley Westwood outside the area, Odegaard’s free kick put Arsenal ahead at the half, forcing Dyche to find a way to change the tide.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche sent on striker Matej Vydra and new signing Maxwel Cornet, who was making his debut, and the change energised the home crowd.
When Vydra went down under a tackle from Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, referee Anthony Taylor signaled to the spot, the hosts felt they had an opportunity to equalize.
However, when VAR intervened, Taylor walked to the pitchside monitor and reversed his judgment after viewing video of Ramsdale playing the ball.
Burnley were sending balls into the penalty box but couldn’t find any genuine opportunities until Cornet found Jay Rodriguez in the closing minutes, and his header from a tight position went just wide.
Burnley are still winless in their first five games, with only one point, but Dyche, who just signed a new four-year contract with the club, claimed he was delighted with the performance.
“We generated a couple of decent opportunities. We did a great job taking the game on, but you need to get that killing edge. I felt we played excellent defense tonight, limiting Arsenal to few opportunities, which is tough to accomplish “he said
“We seldom dominate a game like we did against them these days. It’s critical to have a clinical edge in both boxes. In the end, it was an outstanding performance.”
