Arsenal face a tough test this weekend as they move to face Burnley in the Premier League.
The Gunners have had a scorching start to the campaign after losing their first three top-tier matches.
Luckily for Mikel Arteta, they broke that losing streak with a 1-0 win over Norwich last weekend, a result the Spaniard hopes can help them get started.
For Burnley, it has been a rough start as well, with Sean Dyche’s side taking just one point out of a possible 12 so far.
Last week’s 3-1 loss to Everton was a real blow and with Arsenal coming to town, the hope for the Clarets will be that they can take a big scalp to start their season.
