Alexis Sanchez kept his cool to convert a penalty in second-half stoppage time to hand Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Arsenal won both their league games against Burnley last season thanks to injury-time winners and they did so again after James Tarkowski was penalised for a push on Aaron Ramsey.

Burnley rattled the post through Johann Gudmundsson while Jack Wilshere’s deflected effort ten minutes from time was the closest Arsenal came until Sanchez sealed the win with virtually the last kick of the game.

The result means that Arsenal have leapfrogged local rivals Tottenham into fourth place while Burnley remain seventh.
