However, the Gunners remain fourth on the Premier League log with just one point behind Tottenham Hotspur despite their slim defeat on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery ringed a couple of changes to his side as Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both started the match from the bench.

However, the changes couldn't help the visitors avoid defeat at the end of the match as they were unable to find the back of the net before the final whistle sounded.
