EPL Results: Aubameyang goal could not help Arsenal as Burnley held Arsenal on 1-1, stay tenth in the table

Burnley and Arsenal played out a thrilling 1-1 draw at the Turf Moor. Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang opened the scoring for the visitors before a wild shot by Xhaka went in off Wood to allow the hosts to level.
The Gunners have yet again dropped points in their pursuit of a top six finish and with another 11 games to go this season, it looks very unlikely that the Gunners may play Europa League football next season.
ImageAubameyang put the Gunners ahead in as early as the sixth minute when he cut inside on his right foot and fired low towards the near post which Pope got a hand to but he could not keep it out to give the lead to the visitors. The provider of the pass was Willian.
