Arsenal made the trip to Turf Moor looking to join Liverpool as the only two teams to manage back-to-back victories over Burnley from sides within the top eight of the Premier League this campaign.
In recent weeks, big guns such as Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have been stung at the home of Sean Dyche’s team, therefore, Arsene Wenger’s side knew they had to be at the races.
The Gunners made a positive start, although Burnley were able to get in a couple of times as they exploited Per Mertesacker’s lack of pace. However, Arsenal remained on top in the opening stages and Aaron Ramsey eventually found the breakthrough on 12 minutes when the Clarets were unable to clear their lines properly and the Welshman rifled into the roof of net.
The goal actually came on the former Cardiff City ace’s 150th Premier League appearance making it eight goals for the season so far and five in the Premier League.

Shame there is a really fickle element in some fans who seem unable to appreciate Aaron Ramsey unless he is scoring, reminds me of 2012/13
