Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned his team that the 11 April match against Burnley at Turf Moor will be a physical battle.

The Gunners boss knows that his team will have to match their opponents on the physical front to improve their chances of coming away with all three points.

The north London club are the form team in the Premier League after having recorded seven straight victories, and with Manchester United facing Manchester City on Sunday, it will be the perfect opportunity for Arsenal to consolidate second place in the league.

However, the French manager believes that it will be a difficult game against the relegation battlers, who have been tough to break down at home and have recently recorded a win against Manchester City and even held Tottenham to a goalless draw at Turf Moor.

The manager has urged his team to work hard during the game and produce the technical quality they showed in recent games. Burnley have picked up 18 of their 26 points at home this season and are currently in 19<sup>th place equal on points with Queens Park Rangers, who are just above them in the relegation zone.

"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," Wenger said, as quoted on Arsenal's official site.

"Of course, you have to be at their level of physical performance, because they will be there."

"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," the Gunners boss explained.
