The Premier League is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Arsenal lock horns with Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday. Arsenal have not been at their best this year and cannot afford to drop points in this match.
Burnley have struggled in the Premier League this season and currently find themselves in the relegation zone. The home side suffered a 3-1 defeat against Everton last week and will need to bounce back in this game.
Arsenal, on the other hand, picked up their first league victory of the season against Norwich City last week and will need a similar result in this game. The Gunners are still in 16th place in the league table and have plenty of work to do this season.
