Alex Iwobi relieved with Arsenal's tough win over Burnley

Arsene Wenger declared Arsenal's latest stoppage-time victor against Burnley "a clear penalty" but the decision left opposite number Sean Dyche with a bitter case of deja vu at Turf Moor.

Iwobi has not scored for Arsenal in his last six appearances. It never found clear sailing at Turf Moor.

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has said picking up three points at Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday was more important than last week's victory over derby rivals Tottenham Hotspur. First, though, for Arsenal is a midweek visit from Huddersfield on Wednesday night.

"Burnley is a very tricky team, if they beat Arsenal today they will be really high up in the league table and that would be wonderful for a team like Burnley under Sean Dyche". We look forward to going there and getting another one this season, making it four.

Texas Tech's Kliff Kingsbury saves his job with win over Texas
On Saturday, athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced that Kingsbury will be back for the 2018 football season. Later in the 3rd quarter, Reggie Hemphill Mapps muffed a punt to give Texas Tech great field position again.


Cech made a volleyball style set save on a well-struck Robbie Brady effort in the 39th minute.

But an improved display after the interval resulted in what Wenger felt was a warranted second away win of the campaign. "In the first half we didn't find our game and they stopped us from playing very well", he said.

"In the second half, I felt was all us... even if we missed our final ball".

"For me they need to back up what they did against Tottenham the other day". When you see how hard it is to score against them it's a big result, you'd think that many clubs will drop points here. "They cross very well and up front they have some players who can score headers, so it was very hard".
