Unai Emery hopes rested Arsenal stars are focused for difficult Burnley clash

Arsenal have a range of options on the bench if Emery wants to change things during the 90 minutes, including Alexandre Lacazette and Granit Xhaka.

He added: "Every season is a tough season, and this definitely was, but it's kind of been strangely enjoyable, certainly for me as manager, because you're at stretch".

"We can not be 100% happy, but the players are prepared to improve and after get us closer to the teams in the top four".

Having been held at home by Brighton last weekend, Emery's side travel to Burnley for their final game of the Premier League season knowing a top-four finish is realistically out of reach.

Aubameyang was delighted to be a member of an all-African trio of winners, saying in quotes reported by the BBC: "I share this trophy with two other guys I like, great players and African".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery continues to be without the injured Aaron Ramsey, Denis Suarez, Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding.

The in-form Gabon hitman then doubled Arsenal's advantage just over 10 minutes later as he lashed home a superb volley at the far post from an Alex Iwobi cross to make it 2-0 in the 63rd minute and make it five goals in two games.

Dyche said: "I was pleased with the performance, we certainly took the game on".

The Gunners wrapped up their efforts this season with a 3-1 win away at Burnley.

'We struggled a lot here against Burnley.

Barnes could have had a first half penalty after being barged over by keeper Bernd Leno, and Dyche smiled: "I don't know where it's at".
