Arsenal travel to Burnley on 11 April and will want to extend their winning run to eight games to keep themselves in the fight for a late title surge.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 5.30pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


Burnley come into the fixture having restricted Tottenham Hotspur to only a point at the Turf Moor which took them two points clear of the relegation places, approaching what would comparatively be an easier set of fixtures for the newly promoted club.

Sean Dyche's side have taken points from four of the top seven at the Turf Moor including Manchester City and would be confident coming into the fixture against the Gunners, who have been found wanting on the road against teams in the bottom half of the table.

A win here will take them five points clear of the relegation fight and to relative safety, especially with Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa both beginning to find some form approaching the business end of the season.

However, the manager will be concerned by Danny Ings' failure to score in his last six games in the league.

Meanwhile, Arsenal is in a rich vein of form and are looking good to take the second spot ahead of Manchester City and Manchester United, who are set to play each other in the Manchester derby on Sunday.

Their 4-1 win over Liverpool will give them the confidence of putting up a title challenge should Chelsea's campaign fall through in the remaining seven games.

Arsene Wenger finds himself in a rare selection dilemma with his entire squad fit for the fixture but for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose recovery has been pushed back after a groin problem.

What Managers Say

Sean Dyche: "They're [Arsenal] a fine side, who keep progressing despite what people say. Arsene seems to get questioned, I don't know why, I think the job he's done is terrific. Of course, I'm aware fans would like to have won more trophies in recent years but, as a young manager aspiring to progress in the game, I look at people like him thinking 'you haven't done badly if you have a career like his'."

Arsene Wenger: "I have enough experience to know that I have to live with reality and reality is points and the next game. The dreams are for everybody - we all have dreams at night, but when I wake up in the morning I have to come here and make sure we give everything to win the next game. Chelsea have a difficult schedule, we have a difficult schedule, but what we can only do is master our own schedule. What we want is to go as high as we can until the end of the season, give our best and we are also in the semi-final of the FA Cup."
