Arsenal 2 -1 Burnley: Aubameyang, Lacazette lead Gunners to maximum six points

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored either side of Ashley Barnes' goal to give Arsenal a hard-earned home win.

Arsenal continued their unblemished start to the new Premier League season with a battling 2-1 victory over Burnley at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, on target in last weekend's win at Newcastle United, fired in his second decisive goal in as many games after the hour to move Unai Emery's men to six points from two matches.
Alexandre Lacazette earlier opened the scoring in the 13th minute, only for Ashley Barnes to respond in fortuitous fashion shortly before the break.

An impressive performance from Dani Ceballos inspired Arsenal's recovery and debutant David Luiz held the home side's defence together to give the Gunners an 11th straight win over Burnley in all competitions.

Lacazette tested goalkeeper Nick Pope with a close-range header before scoring from the resulting corner.

With his back to goal at the near post, the French forward managed to spin and squeeze a shot through Pope's legs.

Ceballos was the architect of the move as he won the ball back in midfield and fed it forward to Aubameyang, who rifled into the bottom-left corner to end Burnley's resistance.

Emery moves towards strongest XI

Arsenal boss Emery could have played it safe with his team selection after a laboured defeat of Newcastle at St James' Park.

Instead, the Spaniard made three changes - one enforced, with Granit Xhaka injured - and reaped the rewards, as Ceballos, Lacazette and David Luiz all made the most of their inclusions.
