Alexis Sanchez snatched all three points for Arsenal against Burnley on Sunday afternoon in the 98th minute, after some late, late penalty drama at both ends of the Emirates Stadium.

The Chilean superstar converted his last-gasp spot-kick to seal a 2-1 Premier League victory for the 10-man Gunners, who themselves conceded in injury-time, as well as having Granit Xhaka dismissed in the second-half.

Summer signing Shkodran Mustafi headed Arsene Wenger’s side in front shortly before the hour-mark, only for team-mate Francis Coquelin to foul Ashley Barnes in the 93rd minute, seeing Andre Gray fire his penalty past goalkeeper Petr Cech in what looked like an eventual equaliser.

But, after Wenger was sent to the stands for protesting referee Jon Moss’ decision, Clarets defender Ben Mee was penalised for a high foot on Laurent Koscielny in the box, before match winner Sanchez beat ‘keeper Tom Heaton with a Panenka-style penalty.

The hosts’ fifth league win in a row lifts Arsenal up to second spot, above rivals Tottenham and Liverpool, meanwhile Sean Dyche’s Burnley drop down to 13th, though they are still 10 points above the relegation zone.
