player ratings: Arsenal vs Burnley

Arsenal moved up to second in the Premier League with a victory over Burnley.

The Gunners ran out 3-1 winners thanks to goals from Leandro Trossard, William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

David Raya 7

Made a stunning save to deny Johann Gudmundsson when the game was at 0-0. Unlucky with the Burnley goal, which took a deflection.


Takehiro Tomiyasu 7

Wanted a foul for the Burnley goal when Luca Koleosho got past him. The only moment he really looked troubled all day.


William Saliba 8

Made a rare error in the first-half that almost allowed Burnley to take the lead. More than made up for it, with a great tackle on Koleosho and a goal.


Gabriel 7

Steady performance at the back from the Brazilian. Didn’t put a foot wrong all game. Made a few important headers away.


Oleksandr Zinchenko 8

Scored a brilliant goal to put Arsenal 3-1 up. It was no more than his performance deserved. So good in possession. Back to his best.


Kai Havertz 6

It definitely feels like he is getting used to his system and role, as the German was more assured today. Missed a good headed chance in the first-half.


Jorginho 7

The Italian has enjoyed an extended run in the team and is making the most of it. Tidy performance in front of the back-four.


Declan Rice 7

Another good performance from the midfielder, who was typically everywhere. Almost scored a great, long-range strike.


Bukayo Saka 7

Looked so sharp and was unlucky not to score. Assisted the first goal with a rare towering header at the back-post.


Leandro Trossard 8

Opened the scoring with a brave header from close range. Set-up Arsenal’s second with a corner from the left. An excellent performance.


Gabriel Martinelli 6

Unfortunate to come away without a goal or an assist as he played well. Beat his opposite number a few times, but just lacked the final ball. Missed a great chance when clean through.



Fabio Vieira (Havertz 59′) 3

Shown a straight red card after catching Brownhill on his knee. The ball was bouncing, but it was dangerous.
