On Sunday, Arsenal head up to Turf Moor. The Gunners are languishing in 12th in the Premier League. They’re six points clear of the relegation zone and 11 points away from the Champions League positions. With the January transfer window behind them, Arsenal need a series of wins to rescue the season. Luckily, their trip north today starts a favorable run of matches.

Up first is Burnley, who are 14th in the table, but have recently notched wins over Manchester United and Leicester City. Their series with Arsenal, however, has been one-sided. The Gunners have won the last 10 league matches between the two clubs. The last league loss to Burnley came all the way back in 1974.

Burnley have recently found success and are at home, but Arsenal have the return of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the in-form Gabriel Martinelli to lift the attack. I think the Gunners should take the full points. A win today would propel the club into the week break and the matches afterwards against Newcastle, Everton, Olympiakos in the Europa League Round of 32.

WHO:
Arsenal - Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, David Luiz, Saka, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Ozil, Martinelli, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Burnley - Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, McNeil, Wood, Rodriguez
