"I have not seen the victor but I have been told that we were a little fortunate".

Arsenal scored the breakthrough goal two minutes into added time, however, coming after a cross into the box was nodded on by Theo Walcott for a mixture of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Laurent Koscielny to help the ball over the line.

"You have to question the added time, the corner and whether it should have come in, the handball and question whether we should have dealt with it", he told Sky Sports News.

There was also a hint of offside with both Oxlade-Chamberlain and Koscielny standing close to the goalline.

Arsenal are now unbeaten in six Premier League games. His team is in third place, two points behind leader Manchester City.

"It was a hard game", Wenger said.

Defeat was extremely harsh on Burnley, who remain 14th on the back of another hard-working performance full of character, as they continue to impress on their return to the top flight following promotion in May.

Arsenal are up to third while Burnley stay 14th.

"They took us to the Town Hall, we picked up players who had already been dropped off and we went over to Nelson Golf Club to celebrate".

"So when you have the opportunity to get a bit closer, you have to not miss it".

However, Burnley's lone forward should have done much better when he headed wide from near the penalty spot after meeting Matt Lowton's cross from the right unmarked after being played onside by Hector Bellerin.

"It's a big win because City lost and we were five points behind and when you're five points behind a top-quality team, when you have an opportunity to get a bit closer you can not miss it", Wenger said.

Within three minutes, Sanchez came within inches of breaking the deadlock with a right-foot volley which flashed wide of Heaton's left-hand post, but unbowed, Burnley went straight up the other end and hit the crossbar with Michael Keane's header. "They're a bit of a yo-yo club just now but I am hoping this season they can put things together and really work on staying in the Premier League".
