Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was all praise for his side after they squeezed out a hard earned 1-0 win against relegation threatened Burnley thanks to an early goal from Welsh wizard Aaron Ramsey.
Wenger shared after the match, “It was a battling performance more than a fluid performance, and that was because Burnley are perfectly organised and very fit to keep their shape for the full 90 minutes.”
He added, “They made life very difficult for us. The first goal was vital and we were a little bit in between: do we go for another or try to keep it tight. That is not always the best place to be. When you have not scored the second goal you are always under threat, but I thought we did enough to deserve to win the game.”
Arsenal searched for a second goal right through the game, but weren’t at their fluent best in the final third, and seemed to operate a bit in third gear since taking the lead.
Crucially though it was another three points for the Gunners, who have now won 8 straight matches in the Premier League and will be hoping to keep their impressive domestic run going when they take on Reading in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley next week.
