Arsenal moved to within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea thanks to a battling 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Aaron Ramsey scored the only of the game when he drilled into the roof of the net from close range in the 12th minute.
The win helped the Gunners become the first team to win eight games in a row this season.
