Wooden seats were thrown in opposite directions and during the chaos in Lancashire some people struggled to contain both sets of supporters.

It is not yet known whether anyone has been injured or any arrest has been made in the aftermath of the violent clashes. Sportsmail has contacted Lancashire Police for comment.

Mikel Arteta called on his Arsenal team to ‘change the narrative’ and prove they are not a soft touch, having previously withered in games against Burnley.

And the Gunners put on a flexible performance to have a second clean shit on spin, although Burnley was denied a chance to equalize from the penalty spot.

Referee Anthony Taylor reversed his initial decision to award a spot kick to the hosts after reviewing goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale’s challenge on substitute Matej Vydra on the pitch monitor.

The result sent Burnley to five games without a win, with Shaun Diesh once again hoping to clear his side from relegation against the odds.
