Alexis Sanchez

Once again, Burnley are stung by a late winner from Arsenal at Turf Moor. Boos ring out after that decision to award the Gunners a penalty right at the death after defending so resolutely all afternoon.

Arsenal will return to north London with three points and they move ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, jumping into fourth place.

Full-time: Burnley 0-1 Arsenal

Oh dear. Tarkowski is judged to have pushed Ramsey while the two challenged for a cross thrown into the penalty area and a penalty is awarded! With 30 seconds of injury time remaining, Sanchez steps up and hammers home to score what is surely the winner here.

Goal! Burnley 0-1 Arsenal (Alexandre Lacazette, 90+2)

PENALTY - Arsenal

Koscielny plays a clever pass into the box to find Ramsey, who initially spins past his marker to work room to shoot but once again, Ben Mee is there to take a vital block.

Burnley win a free kick from about 35 yards out, giving them the opportunity to load the box. Brady gets his delivery wrong however and lofts a harmless ball straight into Cech's arms.

Wilshere exchanges passes with Sanchez, getting the ball back just inside the box but again a Burnley player is across to make a vital block.

And here is another change for Arsenal; Danny Welbeck is onto replace Lacazette.

Burnley fancy this; Sean Dyche is bringing on Chris Wood to replace Defour.

Burnley scream for a free kick as Brady's drive from range appears to be blocked by Koscielny's arm but their appeals are waved away. 15 minutes left at Turf Moor, you feel one goal will be enough to win this.

Kolasinac does superbly coming in from the left, skipping past two challenges as he breaks into the box but his attempt to play the ball across goal is a poor one, failing to find anyone.

Arsene Wenger has decided to make a change; Iwobi comes off to be replaced by Jack Wilshere.

Sanchez produces a tidy flick to tee up Ramsey but he fires wide of the post. Meanwhile, Xhaka is being booed every time he touches the ball after smashing through one of their players.

Arsenal are pinning Burnley back in the early stages of this half with Lacazette now deawing a save out of Pope.

Another tremendous block from a Burnley defender with Ben Mee this time sliding into deny Sanchez after the Chilean's neat footwork in the box.

Ramsey is back out for the second-half, despite that heavy landing at the end of the first-half.

And we are back underway for the second half at Turf Moor.

Half-time:: Burnley 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal have a problem here, Gudmundsson and Ramsey both challenge for a high ball and the Welshman is on the end of a clattering, hitting the deck heavily. He's down clutching his shoulder before gingerly walking off the pitch for some treatment.

Another five save from Cech! Brady bends his effort over the wall and towards the fare corner but the Arsenal goalkeeper springs across to push it wide.

Koscielny clumsily slides through Barnes and Burnley aee awarded a free kick from 25 yards out. Brady is standing over it...

Superb defending from Tarkowski! Sanchez breaks into the box, skipping past his man before working the ball onto his right foot but as he pulls the trigger, the Burnley defender leaps across to make the block.

Prior to that, Robbie Brady picked up the first yellow card of the afternoon after coming through the back of Robbie Brady.

Now it is Arsenal's turn to apply pressure, forcing a corner that the home side struggle to clear. The ball falls to Xhaka on the edge of the box but he connects with nothing fresh air. Nacho Monreal fares a bit better, connecting with a low drive from 25 yards out but his effort whistles just wide of the far post.

Burnley crank up the pressure again, with Koscielny called into make a superb diving block to deny Defour's shot before Gudmundsson again tests Cech, breaking clear at the far post to get a header on goal only to be denied once again.

Huge chance for Arsenal! Lacazette does superbly down the left, turning his marker and sprinting into space down the wing. His ball into the box is perfect, teed up for Ramsey to tap home from six yards out but the Wales international gets it horribly wrong and slams his effort over the bar.

Burnley hit the woodwork! It's a wonderful flowing counter attack from the home side with Hendrick sliding a clever ball through down the inside right for the onrushing Gudmundsson. He breaks into the box and lashes a vicious effort on target that Petr Cech manages to push onto the post and out. Terrific stop from the Gunners goalkeeper.

Alexis Sanchez gets himself in a dangerous position from 25 yards out, opting to take the shot on but drags his effort wide of Nick Pope's far post.

It has been a neat and tidy start from the home side with Johann Berg Gudmundsson twice finding space down the right to fling a cross in, but none of his teammates are able to get on the end of it.

And we are off and underway at Turf Moor.

After last week's win over Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal can leapfrog their arch-rivals if they take all three points this afternoon. But Burnley start the afternoon level on points with the Gunners and can move into the top four themselves with a victory.

Sean Dyche names the same starting XI that beat Swansea City last weekend. Chris Wood has recovered from a hamstring injury but starts on the bench this afternoon.

Arsene Wenger made 11 changes to his first-team mid-week against Cologne but he has reverted to a somewhat more similar side this afternoon. The Gunners boss has made just one change to the side that beat Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday and that is an enforced one with Alex Iwobi coming in for Mesut Ozil - who misses out through illness.

Danny Welbeck, subbed off at half-time against Cologne, is named on the bench.

Burnley team to face Arsenal: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, Gudmundsson, Cork, Hendrick, Defour, Brady, Barnes

Subs: Wood, Vokes, Westwood, Long, Arfield, Bardsley, Lindegaard

BREAKING: Chris Wood starts on the bench for Burnley this afternoon.

Arsenal team to face Burnley: Cech, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Kolasimac, Iwobi, Sanchez, Lacazette

Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Wilshere, Maitland-Niles, Welbeck, Giroud

BREAKING: Mesut Ozil misses out this afternoon through illness. Alex Iwobi comes in for the Germany international.

Arsene Wenger on Theo Walcott.

"For the weekend, no [he is not available]. He's back in training now, so he should be okay for next week. He has been ill."

Arsene Wenger and Theo Walcott

Arsene Wenger is a fairly happy chap if you were to ask him about injuries. Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott are his only absentees his afternoon with Arsene Wenger insistent Danny Welbeck is fine despite coming off at half-time against Cologne.

Everybody looks alright. There are some kicks because it was quite a physical game [at Cologne], but overall we have no injuries. Everyone who played will be available to compete for the squad on Sunday. That is one of the positives of last night, we have no injuries. The fact we can rotate means the players are less overloaded with competition."

Team news: Burnley

Top scorer Chris Wood will be ready to return to action this afternoon after the former Leeds United forward missed last weekend's 2-0 win over Swansea City.

However, manager Sean Dyche will still be without Tom Heaton, Dean Marney and Jon Walters against the Gunners as the trio continue to work on their respective injury recoveries.

Arsene Wenger on Danny Welbeck

"It was the plan for Danny Welbeck to only play 45 minutes. Medically, the risk was too great to play him for longer than that. He was ready to stay on and frustrated to come off, but he's in good shape."

Danny Welbeck

Team news: Arsenal

Arsene Wenger this week dismissed concerns over a fresh fitness setback suffered by injury-plagued Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck.

The England international, who suffered a hamstring issue on his return from a groin problem during the last-gasp defeat to Watford last month, made his first appearance for almost six weeks on Thursday night when he started in place of the absent Theo Walcott during a penultimate Europa League Group H tie against FC Cologne.

Welbeck was replaced at half-time in that defeat in Germany but Arsene Wenger insisted that change was not enforced.
