CLARETS reporter Tyrone Marshall hands out the player ratings from Burnley's 5-0 defeat at Arsenal.

Nick Pope 6

Made a fine first half save to keep out Mkhitaryan’s deflected shot, but left badly exposed

Matt Lowton 5

Wasted a couple of good crossing opportunities in the first half. Exposed by Kolasinac’s forays forward

James Tarkowski 5

Loose in possession on a couple of occasions and almost played himself into trouble on the edge of the box in the first half

Kevin Long 5

Struggled with the movement of Aubameyang and Lacazette, with Arsenal finding space in the area

Stephen Ward 4

Lost Lacazette for the opening goal and troubled by the movement down his flank

Aaron Lennon 4

Was narrow defensively which allowed Kolasinac space down Arsenal’s left. Never in the game offensively

Jack Cork 5

Battled hard and kept going, but completely overrun by Arsenal’s midfield and beaten easily by Wilshere in lead up to third goal

Ashley Westwood 6

Calm on the ball tried to shield the back four, but given few options to pick a pass going forward

Johann Berg Gudmundsson 5

Troubled by Bellerin’s bursts from right-back and his pace, with the Spaniard a constant threat going forward. JBG the bright spark in attack though

Jeff Hendrick 6 (Man of the Match)

Looked better for his break from the side. Got through a tremendous amount of work trying to link midfield and attack, got his head up to try and find forward passes. Created the best chance with a cross for Vokes

Ashley Barnes 5

Afternoon ended early through injury but had been given no service while he was on the pitch


Sam Vokes for Barnes (22) 5

Should have done better with headed chance from Hendrick’s cross. Well handled by Mavropanos

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou for Lennon (71)
Nahki Wells for Gudmundsson (89)
