Arsenal defeat Burnley as 2-goal Aubameyang 'shares' Golden Boot

Arsenal have signed off from the Premier League with a 3-1 win at Burnley.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Arsenal beat Burnley at Turf Moor, but the Gunners failed to finish in the top four for the third successive season.

Unai Emery's side secured fifth place meaning they go straight into the Europa League group stage next season.

And they can still qualify for the Champions League if they beat Chelsea in the Europa League final on 29 May in Baku.

Aubameyang, who scored a hat-trick on Thursday as Arsenal beat Valencia in the Europa League semi-finals, finished the season with 22 league goals.

That saw him tie for the Premier League Golden Boot with Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
