Burnley welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor this afternoon in the weekend’s early Premier League kick-off.

The hosts were 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s own goal and Granit Xhaka’s red card consigning the Gunners to defeat in north London.

Neither team is in particularly scintillating form heading into today’s fixture, with Arsenal having won two and lost three of their last five outings, while Burnley have won one, lost one and drawn three across the same stretch.
