I have to credit Burnley for a well organized and energetic defense. But few teams have been unable to break down Burnley's resistance on the road this year. Add us to that short list. Lacazette spurned our best chance, but Pope made only one save of note that I remember. The good teams find a way to win these games.
The annoying thing is that all the Arsenal players looked sharp to me. I didn't see a weak link, but the chain was not up to the task. There were important absences, but that's not excuse--the team out there was strong and should have done the job. Arteta needs to find some tactical nous soon, or we'll be mid-table again.
