Arsenal would be heading for this game in search of a win after back to back losses. The Gunners were riding high on a 22 games unbeaten run in all competitions before they succumbed to a 3-2 loss at Southampton last weekend, they were beaten 2-0 at home again by Tottenham in the Carabao Cup and it seems like the time has come for them to show how much they have improved under Unai Emery.
They haven’t lost at home in the league since the start of the season and they have beaten Tottenham, Qarabag, and Huddersfield at the Emirates this month, their fans would be expecting them to earn another win here just before Christmas.
Burnley are struggling this season and the Clarets are yet to recover from their participation in the Europa League earlier in the season.
They come into this game in the relegation zone as they have collected just 12 points all season and only 4 of those points have come away from home.
The Clarets have lost all of their last 3 matches against the Gunners.
