Arsenal defeated Burnley by 5-0 in Arsene Wenger's last game at the Emirates as the Gunners played their penultimate match of the season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the flood gates in the 14th minute as he lashed on to Alexander Lacazette's pass for an easy tap-in.

Provider turned goal scorer as Lacazette netted Arsenal's second after a neat build up play with Alex Iwobi, as Hector Bellerin's assist got the Frenchman's 13th goal of the season.

Nine minutes after the restart, Saed Kolasinac rifled in a shot into the left hand corner after a lovely piece of skill from Jack Wishere who found the Bosnian clear in shooting range.

Super Eagles striker Iwobi then made it four as he smashed his effort into the roof of the net courtesy of an Aubameyang's assist.

The demolition was complete as the Gabon international scored his brace following Bellerin's first-time cross which made it easy for Aubameyang to score Arsenal's fifth as it ended 5-0.

Arsenal moved nine points within Chelsea in sixth and remained above Sean Dyche's side who are destined to finish in eight in the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Chelsea defeated Liverpool by a 1-0 at Stamford Bridge to keep alive their Champions League ambition for next season.

Olivier Giroud's first half header was enough to seal the victory over the Champions League finalists.

Antonio Conte's side will be hoping Tottenham drop points in their last two games while they must win their remaining two matches.
