FA begins investigation after Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Burnley

The Football Association (FA) has begun an investigation into the crowd trouble at the end of Arsenal’s 1-0 victory at Burnley on Saturday.

The rival fans were housed in the Cricket Field Stand and threw plastic bottles and other items at each other for several minutes after the final whistle forcing the Arsenal players came over to applaud the travelling supporters.

The UK Mirror reports the home fans began throwing items over the barrier separating the two sets of supporters but no one was hurt.

Arsenal won the game 1-0, thanks to Martin Odegaard’s exquisite free kick in the 30th minute.

Burnley were awarded a second-half penalty, but referee Anthony Taylor overturned his decision after reviewing the incident on VAR.
