Granit Xhaka has claimed that Arsenal need to show they are willing to give it their all this year to try and end a 13-year spell of not winning the league.
The Swiss international joined from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer, and is already making an impression on Gunners fans, as well as being touted as a potential Arsenal captain in the future.
Xhaka has scored two long-range efforts in recent weeks, and look likely to hang onto his first-team role from midweek, with Francis Coquelin still ruled out with injury.
Despite only arriving in recent months, he is already talking up a potential title charge, but believes luck will be needed to get them there this season.
For now however, he is simply hoping his side can continue their positive form against Burnley, as they look to go into the international break on a high.
He said: ‘It’s probably too early to say but we’re having a really positive phase and that’s something that we’re happy with.
‘We need to do the same against Burnley on Sunday, we need to approach the game in the same way and make sure we go into the international break still in this positive phase.’
He added: ‘We obviously want to have a consistently good season and show the fans that we’re going to give absolutely everything in every game.
‘Of course to do that we’re going to need a bit of luck along the way but we’re really going to give our all to have a successful season.’
How much luck do we need to bridge the gap at the top of the table? Are we contenders this year?
