Arsenal WILL NOT have it easy at Burnley – Be careful!

Arsenal are heading for their eighth Premier League win in a row, something that no other club has achieved this season, but to reach that milestone we first have to dispose of Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend.

Burnley may be 17 places below us in the table, but Arsene Wenger is well aware that they are no pushovers, especially on their home turf. “Burnley is a tough test for everybody,” Wenger said on the official Arsenal website. “You shouldn’t look at the table because they started slowly but recently they have played very well against all the big teams in the league.

“They are quite efficient at home because they have made 18 of their 26 points at home and therefore we have to make sure we produce the expected performance on the commitment, on the focus and on the quality of our game.”

“Of course, you have to be at their level of physical performance, because they will be there,” he said.

“On the rest, you want to produce the quality of performance that is expected from us on the technical side. You have first to fight with them physically, that’s for sure.”

Wenger can miraculously count on having his full squad available for the first time for many years, so you can bet that he will make sure he picks his biggest and strongest team to face the hardy Northeners. We will have to make sure we pass the ball quickly and don’t allow them to make any suicidal lunges on our fragile squad. Can we go a whole fortnight without any injuries?

    OTOH never f*** w something that is working as well as our 4:1 v pool.
    OTOH i think we could get 3 points and let welbeck/walcott/ramsey get better &
    give ozil/welbeck a rest:
    welbeck [giroud on 60th min if necessary]
    sanchez, caz, walcott
    gibbs gabriel per bellerin

      We must take our Man City game to Turf Moor. Burnley are dangerous coz they’re fighting relegation, and can score goals at home.
      So would not start with Walcott, as he doesn’t track back. Olivier to start as he’s in hot form, with Danny on the right. Wilshere, Walcott can come on as 2nd half subs on 70 mins
      COYG – One game at a time

    If we manage 3 points tomorrow, that will make Chelsea to sweat, and they will miss Costa, we’ve a strong Squad, Than Chelsea and we will Smash them next week Part 1

      for the remaining games its like a cup final if we want to finish 2nd…..

        Hafiz, my dreams are Valid, mate

    As long as we are mentally prepared for the game I think (hope) we will come away with the 3 points cause physically we should be ready given our 7 day rest.

  4. Budd says:

    These three points are crucial because without them we actually gave Pool a hiding for nothing. We have to come home with points, preferably three before the game against Chelsea (which I believe will be an ugly one seeing Mourinho sweating already).
    We really, really need a win. Boys are prepped, so is the boss. I don’t believe we will take them lightly because they already came after battles where they took some big scalps.

  5. unjonzeable says:

    My fear is us getting complacent after an emphatic win at home to Pool……if our lads will see this as a cup final where a win is a must…then I see us coming away with the maximum points obtainable

  6. ButtFlaps says:

    we must not be complacement!!! All guns BLAZE!!!

  7. fred cowardly says:

    From now on we MUST win every match.

    If we play like we played against Liverpool for 90+ min then we will win, but we need to play hard and with passion

    A win and a Manchester derby draw will be the best scenario because next weekend we don’t play PL and will have a game in hand. With a win and a derby draw we should be able to stay second place after next weekend on Goal Difference with a game in hand.

  8. Dennis says:

    we need to play our strongest XI and come out blazing. No complacency and hopefully if we go 3 up we can make subs
