Arsene Wenger: Late Arsenal winner against Burnley was 'a dodgy goal'

Arsene Wenger has commented on rule changes, Dimitri Payet, China and Burnley ahead of the Gunners' meeting with the Clarets.

LONDON -- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said his side's late winner at Burnley in October was "a dodgy goal."

Wenger, preparing to take on the Clarets in the return game at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, said the match may have been the one in which the Gunners had been "most lucky."

Arsenal came away from Turf Moor with a 1-0 victory when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's shot deflected in off Laurent Koscielny's hand in stoppage time.

Wenger said after the game he had not seen whether it was...

Despite Giroud's hot streak, Arsenal better off with him on the bench

Olivier Giroud says he and his Arsenal teammates are hopeful that manager Arsene Wenger will resign with the club.
English Premier League: Olivier Giroud (37') Swansea City 0-1 Arsenal

It would be an act of football heresy. Dropping a player who has scored in five consecutive games would be seen as treachery of the highest order, going against all the natural laws of sport. But even so, there is an argument that is exactly what Arsenal should do with Olivier Giroud this weekend in their home match against Burnley.

In America they call it the hot-hand phenomenon: the belief, whether true or not, that because you have done something repeatedly with success recently, you are...

Welbeck's return gives Wenger hard decisions to make in Arsenal's attack

Olivier Giroud says he and his Arsenal teammates are hopeful that manager Arsene Wenger will resign with the club.

For the second year in a row, Danny Welbeck's return from a long-term knee injury should give Arsenal's attack a big boost. However, it will also create some "luxury" problems for Arsene Wenger, who suddenly finds himself with more attacking talent than he may know what to do with.

There was already a debate raging over whether Alexis Sanchez or Olivier Giroud should be Wenger's main centre-forward. Now, though, the return of Welbeck, as well as increasingly impressive cameo appearances by Lucas...

Tarkowski providing Sean Dyche with a dilemma ahead of Arsenal clash

Young James Tarkowski has been impressive of late and is knocking on the door of a starting spot for Burnley.

Sean Dyche does not like changing his defence unless he is forced into a switch, but James Tarkowski is doing everything he can to get into the Burnley starting backline.

Tarkowski was virtually faultless in two FA Cup games against Sunderland, in which the team picked up a pair of clean sheets, with young goalkeeper Nick Pope protected so well he hardly got his gloves dirty.

It is more than a year since Dyche made any unforced changes to his regular back four and goalkeeper, with a 3-0 Boxing...
