Pre-Match Report

Arsenal v Burnley: The Brief

The last time we lost two matches in a row, we went undefeated in our next 22. 

And after a testing week in which we’ve been beaten by Southampton in the Premier League and Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup, Unai Emery will be hoping for a similar response when Burnley visit Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Of course last time the Clarets played at the Emirates, things at Arsenal were very different. Arsène Wenger was taking charge of his final home match as our manager and, on a sunny spring afternoon, his players gave him a fitting send-off to remember - a highly-convincing 5-0 win.

Fast forward seven months and much has changed. We are still, however, hunting for a route back into the top four - and victory in the early kick-off would take us level on points with Chelsea, who go into the gameweek occupying the final Champions League qualification place. 

This spell of four games in 11 days over the festive period will have a major impact on whether we meet that target - and you can find out how our head coach plans to manage his squad during this intensive end to the year by pressing ‘Play’ on the video above.

We’ve got plenty more pre-match news, and talking points too. Scroll down for the latest on the squad, match stats, press conference video and highlights from our memorable win the last time Burnley visited N5.
