That brings an end to our coverage of the Premier League fixture between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor. Thank you very much for joining us throughout the season. Goodbye!
After today’s result, the hosts finish the season in 15th place in the Premier League table. Arsenal, meanwhile, have secured fifth place following today’s win over Burnley and can now turn their attentions to the Europa League final against Chelsea later this month.
Following a highly entertaining game of football, Arsenal secure all three points against Burnley. Both sides had opportunities to break the deadlock in the first half, but the opening goal came after 52 minutes when Aubameyang pounced on a mix-up between Cork and Mee before calmly placing his effort beyond Heaton. The Arsenal striker added his second on 63 minutes when he superbly volleyed Iwobi’s cross into the top left corner, but Burnley pulled one back two minutes later through Barnes’ close-range header. Nketiah sealed the points for Arsenal when his left-footed strike from an acute angle went through Heaton’s legs with only one minute left to play.
A. Iwobi
90' + 4' Iwobi has been a real handful for Burnley today and grabs his second assist of the match with a perfectly weighted pass into Nketiah who applies the finish. That should wrap it up for Arsenal.
E. Nketiah
90' + 4' GOAL! Nketiah seals the points for Arsenal! Iwobi slides the ball into the path of Nketiah who advances down the left side of the box before squeezing his effort beyond Heaton from an acute angle. 3-1.
90' + 2' Iwobi is still causing Burnley all kinds of problems. The Nigerian pulls the ball back to Aubameyang in the centre of the box, but the Arsenal striker blazes his effort over the bar.
90' There will be four added minutes at the end of this match.
89' Lowton once again delivers a tempting cross into the box which Barnes rises highest to meet, but the Burnley striker steers his header wide to the right of Leno’s goal.
88' Westwood is fouled by Mkhitaryan down the left side of the field, but the free-kick comes to nothing as Koscielny easily heads it away to safety.
86' Crouch has scored on the final day of six separate Premier League seasons. Can the substitute get Burnley level in the final minutes of the game?
84' CLOSE! Following a free-kick, the ball bounces around in the Arsenal penalty area and Crouch’s strike is blocked by Mee. Burnley are really going for it now.
R. Brady
J. Hendrick
82' Burnley make their final change of the game as Hendrick makes way for Brady. There are less than 10 minutes left to play.
81' Mkhitaryan goes in late on Hendrick and Burnley win a free-kick on the halfway line.
79' Arsenal work a quick counter and Nketiah receives the ball in the centre of the box. The substitute turns brilliantly before seeing his effort blocked by Tarkowski.
78' SO CLOSE! Iwobi drills in a low cross from the right which Aubameyang is a matter of inches away from turning in at the far post.
P. Crouch
C. Wood
77' The hosts make their second substitution of the game as Crouch comes on to replace Wood. It remains 2-1.
J. Cork
Yellow Card
75' Cork fouls Guendouzi from behind and is given a yellow card. The Burnley midfielder cannot have any complaints about that decision.
73' GREAT CHANCE! Mkhitaryan gets played in down the right wing and slides a wonderful ball back across goal for Aubameyang to attack. The Arsenal striker is first to reach the low cross but steers his effort wide of the near post from close range. Heaton was completely beaten there.
71' Mkhitaryan tries his luck from range, but the midfielder’s effort is well saved by Heaton in the centre of the goal.
69' Mkhitaryan gets the ball out of his feet neatly on the edge of the area before seeing his effort blocked behind for a corner off Mee. The resulting set-piece comes to nothing.
67' Arsenal are winless in their last four Premier League games. Will the away side be able to hold on and break their poor run of form with just over 20 minutes left to play?
J. Guðmunds­son
65' Gudmundsson had only been on the park for one minute before providing the spark that Burnley have missed for large parts of this game. The winger’s delivery was absolutely inch-perfect for Barnes to turn home. Game on!
A. Barnes
65' GOAL! Barnes pulls one back! Following a cross from the right, Arsenal fail to clear their lines and Gudmundsson is on hand to pick the ball up down the left side of the box. The substitute delivers a good cross into the box which Barnes heads beyond Leno and into the bottom right corner from close range. 2-1.
J. Guðmunds­son
D. McNeil
64' Burnley make their first change of the match as McNeil makes way for Gudmundsson.
A. Iwobi
63' Iwobi has been lively seen the restart and provided a real moment of quality to pick out Aubameyang at the far post who applied a sublime finish. Wonderful football from Arsenal.
P. Aubameyang
63' GOAL! Aubameyang again! Iwobi finds space down the left side of the penalty area before chipping a wonderful cross in towards the far post. Aubameyang meets it so sweetly to volley the ball beyond Heaton and into the back of the net. 2-0.
E. Nketiah
J. Willock
62' Arsenal make their second substitution of the match as Nketiah comes on to replace Willock with just under 30 minutes left to play.
60' Lowton once again finds space down the right to swing a dangerous cross into the penalty area, but Koscielny is well placed to head the ball away with Barnes lurking on the penalty spot.

57' The away side are content to keep the ball now as they look to control the game following Aubameyang’s opening goal.
55' Aubameyang has now scored five goals in his three Premier League games against Burnley.
M. Guendouzi
Yellow Card
52' Guendouzi picks up a yellow card for squaring up to Barnes in the goal celebrations.
P. Aubameyang
52' GOAL! Arsenal lead! Cork’s pass back to Mee is poorly controlled by the English defender and Aubameyang nips in to claim the loose ball. The Arsenal striker keeps his cool when one-on-one with Heaton and calmly places his effort into the bottom right corner of the net from the centre of the box. 1-0.
51' Arsenal have kept only one clean sheet away from home in the Premier League this season. The last time they only kept one clean sheet on the road in a top-flight campaign was back in 1967-68 under manager Bertie Mee.
49' Following the foul on Iwobi, Mkhitaryan’s free-kick is delivered straight into the arms of Heaton.
M. Lowton
Yellow Card
48' Iwobi looks to skip away from Lowton down the left flank, but the Burnley defender lunges in with a late challenge and is given a yellow card.
46' We are back underway! Burnley get the second half kicked off.
Burnley will be pleased with their first-half display and will look to continue in much the same fashion after the break. The physically of Wood and Barnes has caused the Arsenal defence issues and the hosts will look to their two strikers to break the deadlock after the restart. The visitors, meanwhile, will seek to get Aubameyang as involved as possible with his pace proving to be a real handful for the Burnley defence.
Following an end-to-end opening half of football, there is nothing to separate the two sides at the break. Aubameyang had a glorious chance to give the Gunners the lead after five minutes, but his header from close range cannoned against the post following Mkhitaryan’s free-kick. Wood then struck the post from the edge of the box on 28 minutes after Lowton’s searching pass from deep. The defender was then denied two minutes later after Guendouzi blocked his effort on the line to keep the scores level at the break.
J. Tarkowski
Yellow Card
45' + 3' Tarkowski receives a yellow card following a cynical foul on Iwobi down the right-hand side of the field. He can have no complaints about that one.

43' The Gunners work the ball around neatly just inside the Burnley half with a few clever passes, but Westwood pounces to win back possession from Willock following a poor first touch.
41' Barnes clips Guendouzi with a late challenge in the centre of the park and Arsenal are awarded a free-kick.
39' Arsenal are enjoying a good spell of possession at present as they look to force an opening from deep. The play gets spread over to the right for Lichtsteiner, and his cross is deflected behind for a corner off Taylor. The away side take it short but Mkhitaryan’s delivery into the box is easily headed to safety.
37' JUST WIDE! McNeil’s corner from the left is well met by Tarkowski in the centre of the box, but the English defender’s header just floats wide of the far post.

34' Arsenal are forced into their first change of the match as the injured Mavropanos is replaced by Koscielny.

24' Taylor gets away down the left-hand side once more, but his delivery into the box is easily nodded to safety by Monreal.
A. Barnes

21' The following corner is delivered into the far post once again and Tarkowski’s header is easily saved by Leno.
20' CLOSE! Lowton delivers another wonderful cross into the box from deep and this time Mustafi is forced to turn it behind for a corner. McNeil’s set-piece delivery from the right is nodded down by Wood at the far post before Mustafi steers is marginally over the roof of his own goal for another corner.
