Arsenal beat Burnley in controversial circumstances as they scored with mere seconds left to win 1-0 at Turf Moor.
Walcott, supposedly enjoying a renaissance this season, reverted back to his usual ways of wasting the ball near in and around the penalty area, while Mesut Ozil spent the game drifting around at little more than walking pace. It's more one of frustration because they have done enough to earn a point after keeping a good side quiet.
Last week against Chelsea, and in midweek against Basel, Arsenal were absolutely exceptional.
"I was fuming because we took a short corner and it looked to me like we were at the end of the two minutes", he said. Sam Vokes, isolated upfront against Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi, spurned what was probably the best chance of the game.
Neither keeper was seriously tested in the first half as the north Londoners created the majority of the chances in Lancashire.

Monreal 6: Mainly played well, but was outjumped by Gudmundsson in the second half and was lucky we didn't concede. Mustafi has played a few premier league games now and so he is certainly settled into the team alongside Koscielny, who himself is of course a world class centre back these days.
Robson, who played for Burnley from 1956-1965 and made over 200 appearances for the club, led the side to the Football League First Division title in 1960, where the celebrations were far removed from the open-top bus parades of today. Ozil was particularly guilty of that, as he was poor by his standards.
Alexis Sanchez saw a shot across goal deflected wide by Theo Walcott, with England winger Walcott also missing the target in the early stages.
The 66-year-old signed Granit Xhaka in a £33m deal from Borussia Monchengladbach before Lucas Perez sealed a £17m switch to Arsenal in the final week of the transfer window.
Sanchez 7: Our most risky player again, but most of the game he had trouble making things happen in their box. "When you have an opportunity to get a bit closer you have not to miss it".
"He put a big effort into his preparation and he's transferred that now into his game". Burnley meanwhile sit in 14th place with seven points.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
