Martin Odegaard’s free-kick powers an away 1-0 win for Arsenal against Burnley

Arsenal has moved from the bottom of the table to mid-table after two back-to-back wins in the Premier League to show some hope for the club after losing their initial three league games.

Fresh from picking up their first points of the season, Arsenal travelled north to Turf Moor this evening to take on Burnley in the Premier League as the Gunners secured their second win of the season. The new signing Martin Odegaard found the back of the net in the 30th minute of the game. The single goal lead was enough to keep Burnley at bay despite their numerous attacks. 


After a tragic beginning to the new season, that saw the Gunners lose their initial three league games against Brentford, Chelsea and Man City, Arsenal have moved off the lower part of the table with the last weekend’s 1-0 success at the Emirates against Norwich courtesy of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s shot that found the back of the net. The pressure factor has been mounting on Mikel Arteta and triumph over the Canaries and the Clarets earlier today has just given brief relief to the Arsenal boss. The Spaniard is very much aware that his side should convey one more positive outcome on a more consistent basis as the fans have proven to be very demanding in the recent few years since the last year of the former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. 

Arteta has admitted that it has been painful for him to watch the start of the European club competitions as they have gotten underway during midweek as his side play no part in the tournaments after their eight-place finish last season that kept them out of the qualification mark. On the bright side, Arteta and his men have more commitment and the luxury of full week training as the North London side Participates in fewer competitions compared to the other big clubs in the Premiership.
