Find out who impressed with our Gooner Fanzine Player Ratings as the Gunners moved into second spot in the Premier League

Player Ratings:

David Raya: 7/10 - Is the Brentford loanee finally settling in at Arsenal after a good performance that featured an excellent save from Jay Rodriguez. Could not be faulted on the goal, which took a small but vital deflection off Gabriel

Takehiro Tomiyasu: 7/10 - Solid and reliable

Gabriel: 7/10 - Deflected the ball past Raya for Burnely's leveller but other than that gave another powerful performance in the Gunners backline

William Saliba: 8/10 - Emphatic header past Burnley keeper James Trafford to put the Gunners 2-1 ahead. Another excellent match for this Role Royce of a centre-back who seems to improve more each game

Oleksandr Zinchenko: 7.5/10 - Excellent second half strike to make it three for Arsenal

Declan Rice: 8/10 - A world class talent who is flourishing in red and white - and helping Arsenal to flourish in return

Jorginho: 7.5/10 - Captained the side in Martin Odegaard's absence again and was quietly influential in the engine room

Kai Havertz: 5/10 - Could and should have scored with a header early on for the second game running - but didn't. Another mercurial performance which could also be described as underwhelming and disappointing. Hooked after Saliba put Arsenal 2-1 ahead

Leandro Trossard: 8.5/10 - Bravery to score the opener despite knowing he was about to get clattered by Burnley keeper Trafford. Excellent corner for Saliba to nod hone after the interval. Fully deserved his ovation after being substituted for Eddie Nketiah on 81 minutes

Bukayo Saka: 8/10 - Lively in the first half when helping to cut through the Burnley backline. Provided an assist for Trossard's opener before giving way to Reiss Nelson with nine minutes left

Gabi Martinelli: 7.5/10 - Always lively, always a threat. Had a chance saved early in the second half when breaking but Trafford blocked his powerful drive


Fabio Vieira: 5/10 - Replaced the underperforming Havertz on 59 minutes. Sent off with seven minutes remaining after Michael Oliver deemed his high challenge a straight red card - after the official had not booked a single player in the proceeding 83 minutes.

Jakub Kiwior - 6/10 - Replaced Martinelli on 89 minutes 

Reiss Nelson - 6/10 - Came on for Saka late on 

Eddie Nketiah - 6/10 - Replaced Trossard with nine minutes remaining 

Subs not used:

Aaron Ramsdale (GK),
