Arsenal doubled their Premier League points tally with a narrow 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor but Mikel Arteta was not completely sold with his team’s performance. Martin Odegaard’s brilliant direct free-kick was the only difference between the two sides.
And Arteta felt his side were not good enough at keeping the ball, especially in the second half.
“It was a hard-fought victory at a really tough place,” Arteta said. “You have to be ready for a fight.
“In the first half we had some really good periods when we were really dominant and should have scored more goals. In the second half we gave the ball away cheaply too many times.
“We have players who are not at their strength playing in this type of game, but they did their best and we got the win. I’m very proud of them defensively and I’m really pleased with the win.
“It’s two wins in a row, two clean sheets. Let’s go again. We have a lot to catch up!”
