Burnley host Arsenal today in the weekend’s early Premier League game.

The Clarets emerged 1-0 victors when the sides met earlier this season, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s own goal and Granit Xhaka’s red card condemning the Gunners to defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Neither team is in especially threatening form coming into this afternoon’s match, with Arsenal having won two and lost three of their last five games, while Burnley have won one, lost one and drawn three in the same period.
