Koscielny’s late controversial goal marks Wenger’s 20th Anniversary with victory at Turf Moor

Arsenal players celebrating after late victory at Turf Moor 

Making that vital signings might help you win a trophy as it’s going down Arsene Wenger’s way as the Gunners now sits 3rd in the Premier League – winning 5 straight matches in a row. 


If not for a little bit of luck, but still, all credit to Laurent Koscielny whose controversial handball goal ensured Arsene Wenger marked his 20-year anniversary at Arsenal with a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

A resilient display from Burnley was undone in the final minute of stoppage time as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Koscielny fumbled the ball over the line – despite the latter appearing to handle the ball while also being in an offside position.

Huge chances were created on Sunday, a day after Wenger brought up his two-decade landmark in the Gunners’ hotseat, with Alexis Sanchez wasting the visitors’ best chances.

Sanchez and Walcott dragged early chances wide in a cagey first half and Burnley should have gone in ahead, but Sam Vokes headed a glorious opening wide.

Another Sanchez effort clipped the Burnley post, before Michael Keane was denied by the crossbar at the other end as both sides pushed for victory.

But Arsenal snatched victory as Burnley appeals against Koscielny were waved away, the France international claiming all three points with his first goal of the season.
