Arsenal-Alexandre Lacazette unhappy over being subbed-off against Burnley

Arsenal had to dig deep but they held firm in the end to bounce back from two defeats to claim a well-earned victory against Burnley.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring before doubling their lead after the break. Sean Dyche’s men responded with waves of attacks and Ashley Barnes grabbed one back to halve the deficit.

Burnley continued to push but Alex Iwobi killed the game at the death to secure all three points for Arsenal. Here, Sportsmail runs you through some of the things you may have missed from Saturday’s Premier League clash at the Emirates.

Lacazette throws a strop

Alexandre Lacazette was less then pleased with the decision to take him off in the second half.

The Arsenal striker had the look of someone who desperately wanted to make a mark all afternoon and reacted furiously when he was removed from the action.

His words with Unai Emery were brief but it was when he got the bench that the Frenchman unleashed his frustration.

He appeared to get into a heated debate with a member of Arsenal’s coaching staff before taking his seat in a huff.

However, former Arsenal player Bacary Sagna claimed Lacazette’s reaction is a good sign. He said on Sky Sports: ‘Lacazette’s reaction when he was subbed I like, as a player you want to play and score and he’s not happy, this is a good reaction. He’s just having a go at whoever he has to, for the team it’s good.’
