Saturday’s English Premier League action was fantastic for Arsenal, but it will all mean nothing if they fail to beat Burnley at Turf Moor this afternoon.
With Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur all dropping points this weekend, it’s given the Gunners a massive opportunity to move into the top four and send a message they can push all three for those UEFA Champions League qualification places.
However, a tricky test awaits in the form of Burnley, who themselves can remarkably move into the top four with a victory over Arsene Wenger’s side today.
The Clarets have been one of the biggest success stories in the top-flight this season with Sean Dyche inspiring them to some massive results including against Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs.
Having won their last three matches with conceding, the Gunners must find a way to break down a dogged defensive unit and pick up all three points.
Supporters aren’t exactly confident they can do this, with many taking to Twitter to discuss just how difficult a task the visit to Turf Moor will be…

Burnley have kept clean sheets in six of their last nine league matches, including each of the last three. #afc

With our away form and Burnley’s home record and season so far taken into account, this is a very difficult game. Not feeling too optimistic #AFC
