Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.
Burnley are next in Premier League action next week on the road to Everton. Arsenal play in the Europa League next Thursday away at Olympiacos.
Burnley and Arsenal play out a thrilling 1-1 draw at Turf Moor. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the Gunners ahead in the first before Granit Xhaka blasted the ball off Chris Wood in front of his own goal to allow the hosts to level. Wood had a great chance to notch a second, but was denied by Bernd Leno. Nicolas Pepe missed a kick and rattled the bar for the visitors before Dani Ceballos hit the post late on as Mikel Arteta's men were unable to snatch a late winner.
90' + 4' OFF THE POST! Ceballos rattles the post after a scramble in the box. Lacazette twists and turns in the left inside channel and forces a ball into the six-yard area. Burnley scramble it away from Pepe and Aubameyang. However, it falls for Ceballos to strike ahead of his team-mate Chambers, only to be denied by the post.
90' + 3' BLOCK! Aubamenyang latches on to a knockdown by Lacazette and hammers a strike towards goal, but Mee throws himself in the way of the effort to deny the forward.
90' + 2' Both sides are trying to conjure a moment of magic for a winner. Does either have the quality to find the back of the net again?
90' There will be four minutes of added time.
90' BLOCK! David Luiz puts in a vital block at the back to prevent Rodriguez hitting the target with a strike on the half-volley.
87' OVER! Rodriguez lines up a blast from the edge of the box on his left foot, but he sends his effort over the bar.
J. Rodriguez
M. Vydra
86' Rodriguez comes on to the field to replace Vydra.
85' VAR! PENALTY RESCINDED! Pieters blocks the strike with his shoulder rather than his arm. Therefore, it's not a penalty, and the referee also changes his decision to send off the Dutchman for handball on the line. An escape for the Clarets.
83' PENALTY TO ARSENAL! Saka opens up the Burnley defence with a surge into the left inside channel and then a cross into the box. Pepe meets it on the volley and guides his effort towards goal. However, Pieters deflects it on to the bar before Pope gathers. The referee believes that the Dutchman has handled it in the process and awards a penalty to the Gunners, also brandishing a red card to the Burnley defender.
81' MISS! Pepe fluffs his lines from close range. Tierney sends a perfect low ball into the six-yard box for Pepe to attack, but the Frenchman fails to connect with his strike with the goal gaping.
Dani Ceballos
T. Partey
80' Ceballos comes onto the field to replace Partey.
79' CHANCE! Wood misses a great opportunity to put Burnley ahead. He wins a header to combine with Vydra, who returns the pass with a sublime offload on his left foot into the box. The New Zealander only needs to beat Leno from 12 yards with his strike, but Leno spreads himself to make the save.
78' WIDE! Vydra rises highest in the box from the resulting corner from Westwood, but he glances his header wide of the right post.
78' SAVE! Pieters launches a spectacular volley from distance, lifting his effort towards goal. It loops dangerously, forcing Leno to backpedal to turn it over the bar. Almost a cracking goal from the Dutchman.
76' Partey latches on to a clearance on the edge of the Burnley box, but his run into the penalty area is halted by a solid block by Mee.
74' Pepe runs at the Burnley defence down the right flank and he appeals for a penalty for handball against Pieters, who dangles an arm out and the ball strikes it. VAR has a look, but deems the incident not a penalty.
73' There has been no rhythm to the contest in the second half. Arsenal have lacked the fluency they enjoyed in the first half.
E. Pieters
Yellow Card
71' Pieters goes through the back of Lacazette and is booked by the referee.
N. Pépé
69' Pepe comes on to replace Willian in the final third.
68' Vydra twists and turns on the edge of the box and he manages to create an opening at goal. However, he kicks Saka's boot in the act of shooting, allowing Leno to gather the loose ball.
R. Brady
J. Guðmunds­son
68' Brady replaces Gudmundsson for the home side on the right flank.
66' Saka brings down Pieters on the left flank. The youngster has to be careful having already been booked.
64' Vydra almost breaks behind the Arsenal defence, but Leno clears his lines as far as Westwood. Partey and Xhaka combine on the edge of the box to close down the midfielder before he can shoot.
E. Pieters
C. Taylor
63' Pieters comes on to replace Taylor, who appears to be nursing an injury.
A. Lacazette
M. Ødegaard
63' Odegaard is withdrawn in the final third and is replaced by Lacazette.
61' Burnley win a free-kick following a foul by David Luiz on Wood. Westwood floats a cross into the box, but Leno once again does well to come off his line to claim.
59' David Luiz pushes forward from the back for the visitors, but he dwells too long on the ball and is dispossessed by McNeil.
58' Chambers has space down the right and he drills a cross towards the near post, but Pope makes a comfortable catch ahead of Aubameyang.
B. Saka
Yellow Card
55' Saka charges in late on Taylor and goes into the book.
54' BLOCK! Chambers sends a low offload into the box for Saka, who takes a good first touch. He lines up a drive at goal that Tarkowski throws himself in the way of to deny the winger.
53' Westwood floats a dangerous cross into the box from the left flank. Tarkowski drives to attack it, but Leno is off his line and makes a brilliant claim under pressure.
51' SAVE! Saka causes problems in the final third with a mazy run, but his strike is blocked by Mee. Odegaard seizes on the rebound and bends a left-footed strike towards the target that Pope gets down to save before gathering at the second attempt.
50' Saka tries to keep the ball alive on the byline in the left inside channel, but his cross is cleared at the near post by Tarkowski.
48' Westwood angles a cross in from the right flank, but Leno eases the pressure on his defence by claiming the cross.
46' We're back under way at Turf Moor.
Mikel Arteta will be furious with his team at the back. They were in complete control of the contest, but paid for their lack of clinical edge and as Xhaka's mistake allowed the Clarets to level. Arsenal have to do the hard work all over again to put themselves into a winning position.
It's all square at the break in the Premier League clash between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the Gunners ahead with a crisp finish in the sixth minute, while the visitors spurned good opportunities to extend their lead. They were duly punished before the break as Granit Xhaka committed a huge mistake in blasting his clearance straight off Chris Wood, and the deflection off the forward found the back of the net.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
44' Willian is played into acres of space by David Luiz. The Brazilian has options in the middle, but Tarkowski makes a good block to divert his cross behind for a corner.
43' Since the start of 2016-17, Xhaka has made more errors leading to goals (8) than any other outfield player in the Premier League.
42' SAVE! Vydra makes a good run behind the Arsenal defence and offloads back to McNeil in the left inside channel. The winger fires low and hard at goal, but Leno gets down to make the save.
41' Of Wood's 40 Premier League goals, 39 have come from inside the box.
C. Wood
39' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! WOOD CAPITALISES ON A TERRIBLE XHAKA MISTAKE!!!!! 1-1!!!! The Clarets are gifted a way back into the game by Xhaka. The midfielder slams a clearance off the body of Wood as he tries to clear across the face of his own goal. It strikes the New Zealander on the hip and travels into the back of the net. Arteta is furious on the touchline.
37' Aubameyang runs at the Burnley defence and has Saka in support. He finds the run of his team-mate with a precise throughball, but the winger fails to take the offload in stride before losing out to Taylor.
36' Xhaka sends a long ball over the top for the run of Aubameyang. Pope races off his line and does just enough to connect with a header to clear the danger.
34' The Clarets are failing to deliver crosses into the box from the wide areas. Lowton and McNeil have been guilty of not beating the first Arsenal defender.
32' Burnley are struggling to find a rhythm to their game amid the control of possession boasted by the Gunners in the first half. Dyche will be concerned about Arsenal's dominance and the amount of chances they are creating.
30' CHANCE! Odegaard surges down into the right inside channel and has Partey in space on the edge of the box. He picks out the midfielder, who goes for goal first time. However, Partey sends his strike over the bar.
28' Wood latches on to a loose clearance from David Luiz, but he can only scuff a tame effort straight at Leno.
27' OVER! Westwood lines up a strike on the volley following a clearance by Xhaka from Lowton's cross. The midfielder connects with power, only to send his attempt well over the top.
24' Burnley are struggling to get near the Gunners when the visitors break into the final third. It has been an impressive attacking display from Mikel Arteta's men, and they look more than capable of notching further goals.
22' CHANCE! Saka has to score. The winger plays a one-two with Aubamenyang and the ball then falls kindly for him amid a deflection off Taylor. Saka only has Pope to beat from close range, but he pokes his left-footed strike wide of the left post.
19' WIDE! Partey causes havoc in the Burnley box with a ball over the top. Lowton does well to prevent Aubamenyang reaching the delivery, but loses his footing. The striker tries to pounce on the loose ball, but slips in the process and steers a left-footed effort wide of the target.
19' Vydra has space to run at the Arsenal defence, but he and Wood are not on the same page as the offload from the forward travels behind his strike partner.
18' McNeil forces a cross into the box from the left flank, but David Luiz is alert and guides the ball back to Leno.
17' Willian has assisted five league goals for Arsenal this season, the most of any player.
15' BLOCK! Xhaka floats a ball over the top for Aubameyang to collect. The Gabonese surges towards goal and lines up a strike that Mee repels with a solid block.
15' Saka swings a cross into the box from the right flank after collecting Willian's pass. However, Tarkowski rises to clear the danger for the hosts.
14' Saka has room to roam into the right inside channel and he wins a corner off the legs of Mee.
13' Tarkowski sends a perfect pass down the right flank for Taylor. The full-back controls with a good touch and looks for an early cross, but he sends his delivery behind for a goal-kick.
12' McNeil has a run at Chambers down the left flank, but the full-back holds firm to deflect the cross into the hands of Leno.
11' Aubameyang is the fifth Arsenal player to score an own goal and a regular goal against a specific team in a Premier League campaign, and the first since Giroud vs Sunderland in 2015-16.
10' Arsenal have enjoyed the perfect start to the game and can now play the contest on their terms.
8' Aubameyang has scored more Premier League goals against Burnley (8) than against any other club, whilst only against Hamburg (9) has he netted more league goals in the top five European leagues.
6' Willian runs at the Burnley defence before offloading into space for Aubameyang to collect and score. Willian notches another Arsenal assist.
P. Aubameyang
6' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! AUBAMEYANG FIRES ARSENAL AHEAD!!!! 1-0!!!! The Gunners take the lead through a clinical finish from the Gabonese. Willian releases the run of the forward on the left flank with a fine pass. Aubameyang runs at Lowton before cutting inside on his right foot to fire low and hard towards the bottom-left corner. Pope gets a hand to the ball, but cannot keep it out.
4' Odegaard sends a low cross into the box that Mari fails to connect with and the home side clear the danger.
3' Tierney has a charge down the left flank and wins a corner off the legs of Lowton that Odegaard will swing into the box.
1' We're under way at Turf Moor.
Burnley are looking to complete their first league double over Arsenal since the 1962-63 campaign, following their 1-0 win at the Emirates earlier this season.
Arsenal have made five changes to their side from their win over Leicester. Emile Smith Rowe is out due to a hip injury, while Cedric Soares is also missing for the Gunners. Chambers makes his first start of the season for the Gunners at right-back. Odegaard slots into Smith Rowe's attacking midfield position. Aubameyang, Saka and Partey also come into the team as Lacazette, Pepe and Elneny drop to the bench.
Burnley have made one change to their side from their 1-1 draw against Leicester. Jack Cork misses out with a hamstring problem and is replaced by the returning Gudmundsson. Brownhill shifts in the middle of the park to partner Westwood. Wood and Vydra continue to lead the line.
ARSENAL SUBS: Hector Belleri, Gabriel Maghaelas, Dani Ceballos, Alexandre Lacazette, Rob Holding, Nicolas Pepe, Mohamed Elneny, Mat Ryan, Gabriel Martinelli.
ARSENAL (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Calum Chambers, David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Kieran Tierney; Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka; Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Willian; Pierre Emerick-Aubamenyang.
BURNLEY SUBS: Robbie Brady, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Dale Stephens, Jay Rodriguez, Erik Pieters, Phil Bardsley, Kevin Long, Jimmy Dunne, Josh Benson.
BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matt Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Johann Gudmundsson, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil; Matej Vydra, Chris Wood.
Arsenal have been hit and miss in the Premier League since the end of January. They lost three matches to Wolves, Aston Villa and Manchester City, but have produced good performances in wins over Leeds United and Leicester. The Gunners were impressive last time out to rally from behind to beat the Foxes, and will need that energy once again to overcome Burnley today.
Burnley have lost only one of their last six games, but are only six points clear of the relegation zone. Sean Dyche will have an element of concern that his side have been unable to pull away from the battle at the bottom. The Clarets have been solid at the back other than a 4-0 drubbing against Tottenham last week. However, they earned a solid point during the week against Leicester City to prove their mettle.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor.
