Arsenal took on Burnley in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday afternoon and despite the visitors’ good start to the game, it took the home side just 18 minutes to go 1-0 up. Some good work from Alexis Sanchez and Alex Iwobi, whose interchanging passes were fantasic throughout the game, the Chilean layed the ball on a plate for Chambers on the edge of the penalty area, who, without much backlift, curled the ball into the top corner with the outside of his boot.
It didn’t take Burnley long to equalise, however, as the Gunners’ failure to clear the ball saw a cross from the right-hand side meet Sam Vokes’ head, who jumped higher than Gabriel and put the ball beyond Ospina.
An impressive first half which was full of attacking threat ended 1-1, with the visitors proving no pushovers.
Less than 10 minutes into the second period and it was 2-1 to the Gunners, with some fantastic build-up play leading to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross finding a free Alexis in the box, who finished first time to restore the home side’s lead.
It was dominant from Arsenal for the opening stages of the second half and in 70th minute, Tomas Rosicky returned to action as a substitute for the impressive Alex Iwobi, alongside Mikel Arteta, who replaced Francis Coquelin, who looked back to his very best.
The game at the Emirates ended 2-1, with Alexis bagging the winner from an end-to-end game, extending Arsenal’s FA Cup winning run to 14 games.
