Iwobi Hails Arsenal's Patience In Win At Burnley

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has said picking up three points at Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday was more important than last week's victory over derby rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal was late for its preparations due to traffic problems. Wenger has played down the speculation.

Jack Wilshere's substitution proved entertaining, with the English midfielder's hard shot providing an unsuccessful Arsenal corner in the 80th minute.

"It's easier for everyone on the pitch when we work together and then afterwards we have the quality to get forward and create opportunities to score".

Petr Cech needed to perform well between the sticks, and stretched to push Robbie Brady's sweeping free-kick to safety.

"The first half was an even game but in the second half it was all us".

Dyche, unsurprisingly, was not happy with the award of the penalty which some referees may have waved away.

"It probably is a penalty but my point is we were never not going to get that given, I can assure you", he said.

'You understand when you play them why they have 22 points'. We changed our organisation at half time, and I told the players that we were at 80% of what we could do. Our defence worked well again and we were relentless in the second half.

"I think it was very important, more than the Tottenham game".

They looked to be settling for a point on Sunday but banked all three points when Alexis Sanchez converted a disputed injury-time penalty.

Sus not used: Coquelin, Ospina.
