Arsenal must take three points from Burnley or face ridicule

Arsenal must take advantage of their title rivals’ slip ups to get themselves back into the title race later today.
Burnley are one of the worst teams away from home in the Premier League we’ve seen in recent seasons, and anything less than a win would be a disaster.

Burnley have lost 8 of their 9 last matches away from Turf Moor, and should have no chance against an Arsenal team that have been strong at the Emirates this season.

Arsene Wenger can have no excuses, and must go out with a full strength team featuring Olivier Giroud up front to battle with Burnley’s solid centre havles. They will struggle with the movement of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil and Giroud will be able to find pockets of space to create chances for his fellow forwards as well as shooting opportunities for himself.

Arsenal have beaten the Clarets in every game since they were promoted in 2014, and that should continue today.
