Arsenal have dropped points again in the Premier League following their 1-1 draw against Burnley at the Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, March 6.

Captain Aubameyang opened the scoring for the Gunners in the sixth minute, but a mistake by Granit Xhaka gifted the hosts the equalizer in the 39th minute.

It took Arsenal just six minutes into the encounter to open the scoring when team-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found the bottom corner of the net.

The Gabonese linked-up well with Willian, the frontman got in the box cut inside and fired in a shot that Pope could only palm into the corner of his goal. 0-1.

Only £65 donation has been received so far which is no way near the targeted world-record £250 million fee for the Frenchman.

Liverpool have continued to struggle in front of goal having only managed one at Anfield in their last six home matches.
