Eagle-eyed Arsenal fans hail Josh Kroenke for what he wore in Burnley win

Arsenal owner Josh Kroenke has been hailed by fans for showing his commitment to the club in a subtle way.

The Gunners maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-1 win against Burnley.

Alexandre Lacazette gave the north London side the lead 13 minutes in before the visitors equalised before half-time.

But Golden Boot winner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saved the day on the hour, keeping them second behind Liverpool.

And the victory was watched by American owner Kroenke from the Emirates Stadium stands.

The family are now the majority shareholders of the club after father Stan bought out Alister Usmanov’s shares for £600m.

Images have emerged which show the 39-year-old keeping the club close.

In the snaps, Kroenke can be seen standing up to applaud the Gunners at full time.

But his sleeves show cufflinks in the shape of the north London side’s crest.

It was soon shared on Twitter, where fans hailed the owner for his gesture.

“Fair play,” one supporter said.

While another commented: “Love that.”

Kroenke oversaw spending this summer on stars such as £72m man Nicolas Pepe, Real Madrid loanee Dani Ceballos and David Luiz.

And the American has now revealed the motivation for this spree came from the 4-1 Europa League final loss to rivals Chelsea.

Speaking to the BBC, the owner said: “”As the second half of the match unfolded, understanding the position we were in and some of the targets as we headed into the summer from a transfer standpoint, we had to rethink some of our strategy based on that last 45 minutes.

“My main message coming back from Baku on the plane and then throughout meetings all day the following day with them and Unai [Emery] was ‘let’s be aggressive and find out what’s possible’.

“These guys went out into the market place and – through their contacts and our fantastic new team behind the scenes – were able to find some talented players who are really excited about playing for Arsenal Football Club.”

It comes as one star has made a big prediction about the Gunners’ front three of Aubameyang, Lacazette and Pepe .
