Arsenal routed Burnley 5-0 at Turf Moor to keep pace with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. 

With Jurgen Klopp's Reds beating Brentford 4-1 in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off, the pressur was on the Gunners to respond with a victory at Turf Moor. 

Mikel Arteta's title challenging side certainly did that, with a resounding thrashing of the Clarets. 

A double from Bukayo Saka added to strikes from Martin Odegaard, Leandro Trossard and Kai Havertz to ensure Arsenal moved to within two points of Liverpool. 

Find out who impressed with our Gooner Fanzine Player Ratings:

GK: David Raya - 7/10 - The easiest clean sheet the former Brentford netmider will ever keep

RB: Ben White - 7.5/10 - Tested by Odobert's trickery and speed but stood up to the challenge with the help of Saka.

CB: William Saliba - 7.5/10 - A class act mostly untroubled by the Clarets forward line 

CB: Gabriel - 8/10 - Solid and relaible 

LB: Jakub Kiwior - 7.5/10 - Arguably one of his best performances in an Arsenal shirt 

CM: Martin Odegaard - 8.5/10 - This performance is what you get from a player who offers creativity, flair and vision allied with hard-work and a will to win

CM: Declan Rice - 8.5/10 - Another simply world class performance from a world class footballer 

CM: Kai Havertz - 8/10 -  Took his goal well to make it five for the Gunners in what has always been a traditionally tough citadel 

RW: Bukayo Saka - 8.5/10 -  Calmly slotted home his spot-kick and never let the Burnley backline settle 

ST: Leandro Trossard - 7.5/10 - Won Arsenal's penalty, while deserving his goal 

LW: Gabriel Martinelli - 7.5/10 - Always lively, always a danger. An assist when setting up Odegaard's strike 


SUB: Reiss Nelson (69' for Saka) - 6.5/10

SUB: Cedric Soares (69' for White) - 5.5/10
