Kieran Gibbs deserved an assist for the pivotal role he played in Burnley’s equalising goal at Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.
The left-back accidentally slide-tackled Francis Coquelin just as the French midfielder was about to close down Scott Arfield. No, really. (Scroll down this page to see the footage - it’s hilarious).
Arfield, helped by Gibbs’ tackle on his teammate, then spread the ball out wide to Tendayi Darikwa, whose beautiful cross was headed home by Sam Vokes.

Fortunately for Gibbs, Alexis Sanchez put the Gunners 2-1 up after the half-time interval. And, at the time of writing, Arsene Wenger’s men are still ahead and on course to secure their place in the FA Cup fifth round.
