Wenger: We were lucky


Arsène Wenger admitted his side were lucky following their stoppage-time winner which seen them overcome Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.

Laurent Koscielny bundled the ball over the line on the 92nd minute for the Gunners- who were lucky to have claimed the win after a lacklustre performance throughout.

Burnley will feel they deserved something out of the game after solid defending kept the visitors at bay for large portions of the game.

"We are a bit fortunate today, because we are a bit jaded physically and made some technical mistakes. Burnley defended very well and they looked from every corner as if they could score. Wenger told Sky Sports.

The Frenchman, who is celebrating 20 years at Arsenal insisted that today’s result was vital and complimented Burnley.

"The impact of the other results today on the morale of the team could have been negative if we had not won.

"Burnley are a tough team though, everyone will find it hard here. When you come back here you know what it is like to play football back in years past."

Arsenal move up to 3rd in the Premier League while Burnley stay 14th, three points off the drop.
