Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was impressed with his side’s battling qualities after a 1-0 victory at Burnley clinched them back-to-back Premier League wins.
Martin Odegaard’s first-half free-kick gave Arsenal the lead at Turf Moor and they held on for a hard-fought three points to further ease the pressure on Arteta.
The Gunners were grateful referee Anthony Taylor reversed his decision to award Burnley a second-half penalty as they followed up last week’s first league win of the season against Norwich with another three points.
“It was a really hard-fought victory in a place that is really tough to come and win. You have to be ready for a fight.
“They do really well what they do. We started really well, we had some big phases where we saw a lot of things I wanted as a team.
“[Burnley] split the two blocks very much and then you have to defend crosses and long balls and we did that really well. The commitment and the attitude that my players showed throughout the game is the most pleasing thing for me.”
