Arsenal will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they travel to take on Burnley this weekend. The match schedules for Saturday at Turf Moor with kickoff at 3:30 pm.
The Gunners overcame a 1-0 defeat to league leaders Manchester City with a resounding 3-1 win over Leicester City. Burnley could have a double victory against the Gunners this season for the first time since 1962-63.
Following a buoyant end to February, progressing to the next round of Europa League dramatically, and beating Leicester, Arsenal will be looking to maintain the same form heading into the jam-packed March schedule.
Mikel Arteta’s side is currently chasing London rivals Tottenham in their bid for a Europa League spot. In addition, Arteta has a double-header against Olympiacos, but they need to look to the reverse fixture in December for evidence they cannot afford to overlook Saturday’s clash.
The Gunners have 11 losses in the league this season; only in 2017-18 have they suffered more defeats in a 38-game Premier League campaign. Moreover, they continued to fail to score in 10 league outings.
Sean Dyche’s men have a tough table to regain their form if they shake off any relegation woes. The side’s 1-1 draw to Leicester City made it three clear of the red line. It follows a heavy 4-0 defeat to Tottenham.
