Arsenal vs. Burnley: Premier League – Match Preview

Arsenal entertain Burnley in a huge game for the Gunners if they are to remain in the title race.

Arsenal eased past Swansea City last weekend, winning 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium, with Olivier Giroud opening the scoring.

Two own goals from the hosts made things easier, with Alexis Sanchez adding a fourth late on.

Joey Barton scored the only goal as Burnley extended their superb home record by edging out Southampton.

They also progressed in their FA Cup replay, beating Sunderland at Turf Moor thanks to goals from Sam Vokes and Andre Gray.
