What to Know

Back in December Burnley took advantage of a reeling Arsenal on defeated them 1-0 at the Emirates. But these two teams have gone in different directions since then. Mikel Arteta's side has stabilized despite his claims that they aren't where he wants them to be. Burnley meanwhile have struggled to maintain distance between themselves and 18th place Fulham and only lead the relegation battlers by six points, a lead that's large but not entirely safe. As always under Sean Dyche, Burnley have struggled to score while being a team that's difficult to break down, so Arsenal will need to find ways to create good chances, which hasn't always come easy for them this seaosn.

On Wednesday, Burnley and Leicester City tied 1-1.

Meanwhile, Arsenal bagged a 3-1 victory on Sunday.
