Ramsdale frustrated with tactics

Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has been left frustrated with his side's tactics against Burnley in which they were held to a goalless draw.

"We put balls in the box and that's meat and drink to Burnley, so it's a difficult one.

"It's definitely a missed opportunity for three points and to gain places back in the league but I'll take the positive of a clean sheet, with the defending of the whole team. But definitely a frustrating day.

"It is down to [fatigue]. It's a difficult one to say because I'm not the one running about every three or four days like those lads have been doing, but with the quality we had on the pitch, we could have got more.

'We had most of the ball and we could have made more chances, but I can't fault any of the effort the lads have put in, defending or attacking wise, it was just a bit if quality we missed and also a few good saves from Popey [Nick Pope] as well."
