Arsenal must not take Burnley as lightly as Monaco by DN
I really hope I am wrong about this but I get the feeling that a touch of complacency is creeping into the Arsenal as we prepare for Saturday´s late kick-off away to Burnley. It feels to me as though the Arsenal players and even Arsene Wenger have already got a little part of their minds focused on the games after this weekend and that is a very dangerous situation.
It is not as if we have not had previous warnings about taking teams for granted and I´m sure that the manager will be saying this to his squad. Maybe it is time for Mister Wenger to break out the video of our first leg at home against Monaco to really hammer home the danger of being complacent.
The Frenchman could also point to some of Burnley´s other results against the big clubs this season. Despite them being just one place off the bottom of the Premier League table, Burnley have played pretty well, especially at home.
They held the Spuds to a draw last weekend and at Turf Moor in January, beat Man City at home and drew away and they held Man United to a draw at home as well. So with them fighting for their survival, the Gunners must be fired up and ready, instead of thinking about an FA cup trophy and a possible title challenge, or we could be seeing another Monaco disaster.
