LONDON: A second-half double from Alexis Sanchez and a first goal for Calum Chambers handed Arsenal a 3-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday in the Premier League.

 

Burnley frustrated Arsenal for much of the game but Sanchez broke the deadlock on 70 minutes, heading Chambers' cross beyond goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

Chambers then scored his first Arsenal goal two minutes later from close range before Sanchez weaved through the Burnley defense to score his second in the last minute of the match.

Theo Walcott came on after 80 minutes to make his first appearance for Arsenal after a nine-month absence with a torn knee ligament. He could have scored with a fierce shot from a tight angle but Heaton managed to turn the ball over the crossbar.
