Arsenal and Burnley fans clash in stands as stewards fail to control Turf Moor carnage

Arsenal and Burnley fans clashed in the stands at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon as stewards failed to keep the rival supporters separated at full-time.

A moment of brilliance by Martin Odegaard helped the Gunners to victory. The home team was denied a penalty by VAR after a challenge by Aaron Ramsdale.

Many of the people in attendance were also annoyed by clips of online clashes. Sean Dyche’s men appeared frustrated on the pitch.

Stewards tried to keep control of tempers, as fans ran past empty seats in support.

The Arsenal boss told Match of the Day: “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.

“There are players who were not at their best playing in this type game, but they tried their best and won. 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!”

And Dyche adding: “I think it was a good performance. I feel like a broken record saying that lately. In the first half we didn’t do a lot wrong. In the second half I thought we smothered the game. It’s head-scratching that we didn’t score.

“We created a couple of good-ish chances. We took the game on fantastically well, but you’ve got to find that killer edge. I felt we did a great job of defending today. Arsenal had very few chances. That’s hard to do.

“It’s very rare that we dominate a game today like we did against them. That clinical edge in both boxes is important. That was a really strong performance in the end.”
