[Tweets] Ozil, Walcott & More: Players Celebrate Online After Late Win Over Burnley

By on January 22, 2017

Some of the Arsenal players have been celebrating on Twitter after we secured a vital last gasp 2-1 win over Burnley at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon.

We seemed to be heading towards a routine win when Shkodran Mustafi headed us in front shortly after half-time but in true Arsenal style we made life difficult for ourselves after Granit Xhaka saw red for a lunge on Steven Defour midway through the second half.

It looked as though we had thrown away two valuable points when Francis Coquelin gave away a 93rd minute penalty which was converted by Andre Gray to make it 1-1.

However, there was even further late drama as Arsenal were awarded a penalty in the 97th minute after Laurent Koscielny was caught with a boot to the face and Alexis Sanchez dinked the resulting spot kick home to secure a dramatic win.

The victory sees us climb up to second in the Premier League table where we trail leaders Chelsea by eight points after they beat Hull City 2-0 at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

After the game, some of the Arsenal players have been celebrating on Twitter with Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil, Mustafi, Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi and Mohamed Elneny all reacting on the social media network.
