Arsenal finished their Premier League campaign on a high in a frantic 3-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured a share in the Golden Boot with a brace.

Burnley had the better chances of a frenetic first half that saw Chris Wood hit the post before Matt Lowton’s shot was cleared off the line.

But Aubameyang (52) capitalised on some shaky defending to break the deadlock, before doubling Arsenal’s lead (63) with a volley.

Ashley Barnes (65) pulled one back almost immediately, but substitute Eddie Nketiah (90+4) secured all three points in stoppage time as the Gunners finished fifth in the table.

Arsenal started brightly but Aubameyang missed a golden opportunity after taking his eye off a Henrikh Mkhitaryan cross that ricocheted off his shoulder and hit the post.

Burnley then quickly found their feet, and almost took the lead when Wood struck the post after he was played through on goal by Jack Cork.

Moments later, Burnley were three on two when Barnes crossed for Lowton, who skipped past Bernd Leno only to see his shot blocked on the line by Matteo Guendouzi.
