boss Mikel Arteta praised his side's fighting spirit after the 1-0 win over Burnley.

The Gunners have eased some of the pressure at the start of the season with two consecutive victories in recent weeks. They won 1-0 at Turf Moor tonight with a single goal by Martin Odegaard. For the first time since 2014, Arsenal won 1-0 in two consecutive games, and after the game, Mikel Arteta praised the performance of his side.

He told BBC:

"It was a hard-fought victory at a really tough place.

"You have to be ready for a fight. In the first half we had some really good periods when we were really dominant and should have scored more goals. In the second half we gave the ball away cheaply too many times.

"We have players who are not at their strength playing in this type of game, but they did their best and we got the win. I'm very proud of them defensively and I'm really pleased with the win.

"It's two wins in a row, two clean sheets. Let's go again. We have a lot to catch up."
