In what turned out to be a very disappointing evening for Arsenal, the Gunners failed to beat bottom-placed Burnley at the Emirates. Mikel Arteta’s men had to take 3 points in this game after Manchester United secured a crucial last winner against West Ham as the race for the top 4 gets tighter. On the other hand, Burnley took home a crucial point as they bolster their chances of staying up this season.
After this draw, We look at how Twitter reacts to Arsenal failing to win against Burnley.
Twitter reacts as Arsenal puts out a disappointing performance against Burnley:
Arsenal dominated the game from the very first minute as they held 76% possession throughout the game with an xG (expected goals) of 1.38. The Gunners had the momentum, they had the rhythm, they even had their chances, the only thing they did not have was a goal to show that. Alexandre Lacazette missed a huge chance which could have given the Gunners a lead but failed to convert any shot on target this evening.
This draw can prove to haunt Arsenal in the future as the club would have retained the 4th position if they had claimed the 3 points today. With this, the horrendous month of January also ends for the Gunners as they failed to win any of their five games and got eliminated from two cup competitions as well.
Mikel Arteta and Edu will be under serious pressure to get some signings under their cap with just 8 days to go until the January transfer window closes. Arsenal have little to none squad depth and will be looking to bolster their team in the upcoming days.
Vlahovic and Arthur are the only two players the Gunners are heavily linked with this transfer window and will be hoping to get at least one signing as soon as possible.

I should note I only saw snippets of the Arsenal game but here's the thing.Advertisement
On Weds Spurs threw on Dutch and Argentine internationals. On Sat Man Utd used Rashford, Cavani, Martial. Those players won the games.
Arsenal had Nketiah. Yes AFCON an issue but hardly an unknown one.
