Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal can close the gap on the top four by returning to winning ways against Sean Dyche’s Burnley, who currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League
Arsenal will aim to keep the pressure up on the sides above them in the race for the top four by collecting all three points against Premier League basement side Burnley at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
The Clarets are down in 20th and in a real relegation dogfight as they sit three points adrift of safety heading into the weekend, having won just once all season.
Mikel Arteta could opt for some changes following their Carabao Cup semi-final second leg defeat against Liverpool on Thursday, whereas the visitors should be fresh after a two week break from action.
