Interview

White on clean sheets, set pieces and momentum

Ben White was under no illusions about the size of the task facing us at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

A previous visitor to Burnley's home with former club Brighton, the 23-year-old defender knew exactly what he was in for against Sean Dyche's side.

However, our defence stood firm as we recorded a 1-0 victory, despite waves of Burnley attacks as the final whistle drew closer.

Ben spoke to Arsenal Media after the final whistle - and here is everything that he said:

on the performance...
We knew it was going to be a tough game before we came here. Obviously it's so hard and the two big boys that they've got up top are difficult to handle.

on the importance of back-to-back clean sheets...
I think clean sheets are really important. If you get that, you've got a good chance of winning. We've got the quality up front so if we're keeping a clean sheet, we're always going to win a game. 

on his take on Odegaard's free-kick...
To be fair, I was in the wall so I didn't see too much of it! But it was obviously an amazing strike.

on set-piece practice paying off...
There's quite a few of them out there taking free-kicks every day, so it's nice to see one go in.

on the overturned penalty decision...
It was a tough one, my heart skipped a beat for a second. It was really, really dry out there today and my pass back didn't get there at all. Luckily Aaron came to save me.

on keeping the momentum building...
That's what we're going to do and that's our aim.
