Arsenal ended the 2018/2019 Premier League campaign with an away win at Turf Moor Stadium against a tough side Burnley in the final day of the league.
Unai Emery went into the game having 7 changes to the side that won against Valencia at the Manstello Stadium last Thursday. The game which saw the likes of Alex Iwobi, Mohammed El-Nenny, Matteo Guendouzi, Joe Willock, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Mavropanous earn a starting line-up call.
The game was quite tough in the first half but thanks to Aubameyang’s opener to make way for goals in the encounter. The Gabonese striker opens the score sheet for the Gunners in the 52nd minute to keep him in contest for the Premier League golden boot race which heats up in with Manchester City’s Aguero and Mo Sallah of Liverpool.
In the 63rd minute of the game, Iwobi flicked an overhead pass to find Aubameyang again at the far edge to the Burnley’s goal pole and the Striker doesn’t hesitate to fire into the roof of the net to make it his second of the Match and gave the visitors a 2 goal advantage.
In just 2 minutes after Auba’s second goal, Ashely Barnes pull a goal back for the home side with a header which couldn’t be saved by Bernd Leno, this gives Burnley hope of making a comeback.
All effort to make Aubameyang score more were in vain as the striker keeps wasting some of the chances he could have converted.
Eddie Nketiah who was brought in from the bench to replace fellow teenager Willock splashed a low cross pass Burnley’s goalkeeper in the 90th minute to make it 1 – 3 in favor of the North London club.
Arsenal will look on to the Final game of the Europa League against fellow London rivals Chelsea to secure their first European trophy on the 29th of this month.
