Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says they didn’t deserve their winner at Burnley.

Henry believes Laurent Koscielny’s last-gasp winner against Burnley should not have stood after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s wild strike ricocheted off the defender’s arm.

He told Sky Sports: “If his hand wasn’t there the ball would have gone out.

“If he [the referee] gave a handball I would have understood.

“But I don’t think Koscielny meant to do that. That’s the main thing.”

Henry was not the only ex Gunner to give his verdict on the goal, as Emmanuel Petit agreed with his fellow countryman.

Petit said: “Laurent Koscielny’s goal should not have been allowed. There was a huge infringement with his hand.”
