Gunners 3-0 Burnley: Alexis is a one-man wrecking crew [video]

After a long, frustrating 70 minutes in which we utterly dominated an overmatched Burnley—who predictably sat back to absorb pressure and look for quick counters and who were certainly content to play for the draw—Alexis sliced them open with a header from close range from a cross in from Chambers, who opened his Arsenal account just over two minutes later. Alexis added a stoppage-time goal, his 10th goal for Arsenal and our eighth stoppage-time goal of the season, to make the final scoreline 3-0. That may flatter us a bit, but we—by which I might mean Alexis—worked hard for it. Burnley didn't get a shot on target until late on, and we had many chances snuffed out by Heaton, who made save after key save. Despite his efforts, we come away with a fine win, highlighted by the return of Theo Walcott who didn't have much to do in his ten-minute cameo. Check out the highlights below...
