EPL: Arteta reveals why Burnley defeated Arsenal 1-0 at Emirates Head

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has said that Burnley defeated his team 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday night because the Gunners made mistakes against the visitors.

Arteta, who described the outcome of the encounter as disappointing, also said that the red card his player got transformed the game.

Arsenal controlled the first hour of Sunday’s match against Burnley and had a flurry of chances before Granit Xhaka’s red card and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s own goal changed the game.

“It’s another really disappointing defeat because of the way we performed, the way we completely dominated the game, the chances we generated,” Arteta told Arsenal’s official website.

“They had zero shots on target, but instead we lost the game. Obviously, the red card changes the game completely. Still, we have to defend the set-piece better, and we had some really good moments still with ten men.

“As you could see, you could not fault what the players are trying to do and how much they are willing. And probably it’s that they are too willing that Granit did what he did. I’m extremely disappointed, obviously.

“Burnley made us pay. It’s our mistake. In the Premier League, you have to win the game. It’s not a question, it’s not a doubt. You have to go and win the game. That’s it.”
