The Gunners endured a difficult time at Turf Moor on Sunday as Alexis Sanchez’s stoppage goal secured maxiumum points for the visitors

Alex Iwobi admitted that Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Burnley on Sunday was a tough Premier League encounter.

Alexis Sanchez’s 92nd-minute penalty handed the Emirates Stadium outfit their second victory on the road in the English top-flight this campaign.

The triumph over the Clarets made it eight league wins for Arsene Wenger’s men this term as they climbed to fourth place in the Premier League log with 25 points from 13 games.

And the 21-year-old who made his fifth start in seven league games this season praised the fans for their support in the hard-fought victory over the Lancashire outfit.

“Tough game away from home but we dug deep till the final whistle. Another 3 points, Thanks for your support  #AFC,” Iwobi wrote on Instagram.
