ARSENAL crashed to a 1-0 home defeat to Burnley as fans could barely watch what happened.
One despairing supporter decided to use his coronavirus face mask to cover his EYES as the game ticked into the latter stages.

It was also the Clarets’ first-ever victory over Arsenal. The result moved them out of the Premier League bottom three.
With fans allowed back into stadiums, albeit hugely limited, this gentleman probably wished he stayed at home.
With a red mask covering his eyes, the man decides to take a peek out of it, but unfortunately for him it was still 1-0 and Arsenal were still toiling.
The result will only ramp up the pressure on under-fire boss Mikel Arteta.
He described the home clash as a must-win before the game, but finished it with another loss and a 15th place in the table.
The Gunners’ case wasn’t helped by Granit Xhaka who was sent off after a VAR review for grabbing Ashley Westwood around the throat.
Speaking on the red card, Arteta said: “In these conditions [it was] even worse, in these conditions of not winning football matches.

“It’s not an excuse to be brave to do what he did today. I’m sure he will [accept it].
“We were on top from the moment in the beginning till the sending off.
“You saw the performance of the boys, how much they wanted it.
“Again we threw it away on a silly red card, we lost the game.
“You saw what happened, the other 60 or 70 minutes, we had total control.”
Next up for Arsenal is a trip to take on high-flying Southampton who beat Sheffield United 3-0 today to move into third.
