Burnley 1 Arsenal 3

Clarets fightback falls short as they end memorable season on losing note. There was to be no grandstand finish in the Turf Moor sunshine as bogey team Arsenal denied the Clarets a fitting send-off.

 But Sean Dyche’s men certainly didn’t go out with a whimper as they fought to the end of another landmark season.

 Two second-half goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ultimately proved enough to extend the Gunners’ record as the only current side in the division not to be beaten by Burnley in the Premier League era as he earned himself a share of the league’s golden boot.

 It’s 1974 since Arsenal last lost a league game to the Clarets, but once again they were pushed all the way as Burnley bossed the first half and then hit back with an Ashley Barnes goal to share the leading scorer honours with Chris Wood.

 Substitute Eddie Nketiah’s goal with the last kick of the game finally killed off hopes of a successful comeback as he confirmed a club record 10th home league defeat of the campaign for the Clarets.

 But that doesn’t reflect the scale of Burnley’s achievements in dealing with a first European campaign in half a century before bouncing back to reach the 40-point mark and finish 15th in the table to record their second-best finish as a Premier League club.

 Dyche’s side will play top-flight football for a fourth successive season in 2019-20 – the first time the club has managed four in a row since the start of the 1970s.

 And in a season of personal triumphs, Ben Mee completed an ever-present record of playing every Premier League minute with another commanding performance against an Arsenal side still chasing honours in the competition where it all started for the Clarets back in July.

Not a great way to end the season but a rousing first half and great to see a goal at the Turf. Finishing 15th earned us 104.3 million, not to be sniffed at with a wage bill last season of 80 million... It will be interesting to see the ins and outs during the close season
