‘He’s brilliant’, ‘Wow’: Arsenal fans praise Pablo Mari for Burnley performance

Arsenal stumbled their way to a 1-1 draw with Burnley this afternoon as the Gunners failed to build on taking the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

A huge error from Granit Xhaka allowed Chris Wood to equalise for Burnley. And despite a host of good chances in the second period for both sides, neither could find the breakthrough.

Nicolas Pepe missed a golden chance from eight yards out, before Erik Pieters thought he had given Arsenal a penalty before VAR intervened.

A point at Burnley is never the worst result in the world, of course. A number of Gunners players put in good performances too, as Mikel Arteta made four changes to his starting XI.

Among those changes was a start for Pablo Mari. The defender stepped into the fold to deliver a good performance at the back, despite the challenge of Chris Wood and Matej Vydrda.

Mari also caught the eye of Arsenal fans on Twitter, who were quick to praise the often under-used defender.
