Wenger: 'Credit to Burnley, they played very well'

"Burnley played very well. They missed the first big chance and I believe that header could have had a big weight on the game. With the performance they put in I think it would have been a very difficult game for us if they had gone 1-0 up.

"We then took our chance, but Eduardo missed another good chance to score a second - the surprise of the day is that he missed it - you quickly get used to him scoring a goal when you want him to but he scored one and got an assist for the second so overall I believe the two strikers did well.

"Credit to Burnley, they played very well and in a fair way and with the way they play I am surprised they are in their position in the Championship - perhaps it's better to be in the Premier League!"

"Jens had a faultless performance. I wish that he stays but we will learn whether or not he wants to in the days to come. He showed what a great professional he is. It is sad if he wants to go but the decision is in his court."
