Ultimately, the Gunners won with great ease. Arteta’s team took advantage of Burnley’s weakness three times: crossing into the area.
They move up to the top of the table, level on points with Manchester City, and surpass their north London rivals Spurs, who suffered a setback earlier in the day.
It was an incredible day for the Gunners, who will head into the international break on a high despite Vieira’s needless red card.
One of his best games wearing an Arsenal shirt so far; he made some great saves but wasn’t given much of a distribution task. Gudmundsson’s goal in the first half was excellent. 6.
The Japan international was largely outstanding when he was moved to the right flank. Though he could have been more forceful for Burnley’s goal, he was usually a good defender and contributed significantly with his delivery and link-up play in the last third. 6.
A dynamic addition to the field on both ends. After a superb defensive tackle kept Koleosho from scoring, a header fell in the right spot. 8.
Set pieces are a significant threat throughout the entire game. The Brazilian showed incredible intensity to help break the deadlock when Arsenal was down to 10, and then excellent concentration to defend the six-yard box. 6.
Bukayo Saka was able to get space in the first half thanks to an incredible flip. His third goal for Arsenal was scored with equally superb technique. 8.
He maintained the flow of the game at the base of the Arsenal midfield. With a few strong victories in one-on-one matches at the halfway line, the Gunners maintained the pressure. 6.
It was a great long-range effort that came close to scoring. I won the ball high and consistently, as usual. The England international is excellent, and that much is obvious. 6.
The German contributed significantly to Arsenal’s strong forward play, but he still needs to find the final touch. A terrible miss on a clear header at a corner, too. 6.
He was Arsenal’s most dangerous player in the first half, giving Leandro Trossard another assist. Despite being a little quieter in the second half, the performance was still excellent. 6.
He seems to bring out the best in people around him when he plays up top. Martinelli is more relaxed, and he has a great relationship with Saka. Today offers yet another objective and help. 8.
Martinelli gave a legendary performance. Played a fun down the left wing, beating his fullback, only to miss with his final ball. But such a threat to the other defenses. 6.
Upon taking over for Kai Havertz, he didn’t offer much. Then, just when they might have had an easy finish, a terrible challenge put his team under pressure. 5.
