Arsenal have made it two wins from two to kick-start their Premier League season after holding off a resilient Burnley side at the Emirates on Saturday.

Alexandre Lacazette broke the deadlock through sheer determination as he muscled off his man at a corner before squeezing a shot through the legs of Nick Pope inside 13 minutes. However, Sean Dyche's men capitalised on a quick counter-attack minutes before the break as Ashley Barnes equalised from inside the area.

then superbly restored Arsenal's lead as he ran at the Clarets defence before powering a low, hard shot past Pope from outside the box to make it 2-1. Unai Emery's men held on to secure all three points in north London.
