Burnley welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor in the Premier League’s early kick-off today. The Gunners could leapfrog Aston Villa in the table with a win, and the club is in good spirits after their 3-1 win at Leicester City last Sunday. Despite going behind early, goals from David Luiz, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe ensured Mikel Arteta’s side picked up all three points from the Foxes, who lie in third – just a point behind Manchester United.

Arsenal will need to be wary of their home opponents, as Burnley can be frustrating opposition at home. In their last four league games at Turf Moor, Burnley have drawn all four – with three finishing 1-1. There is reason to be confident for the north London side, as Arsenal have conceded just seven goals in their 13 Premier League matches against Burnley – and the Gunners have never conceded more than once against them. While Sean Dyche traditionally makes his Burnley team difficult to break down, Arsenal will feel confident as Lacazette, Pepe and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang return to form. Aubameyang, who scored the winning goal at the wrong end in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium, has scored more goals against Burnley than any other Premier League club.
