Burnley- Arsenal Match Preview and Line-up
After a much-needed win against our arch-rivals at the weekend, reducing the gap to just one point, and them dropping two points this afternoon against managerless West Brom, the Gunners have a fantastic opportunity to move above the Spuddies and show them the Arse(nal). This will not be easy as the latter can also be said about our opponents, the beautifully named ‘The Clarets’; they are level with us on points and a win will move them up two or three places in the league in to the dizzying heights of the TOP four/five. A Pool draw or loss against the Chavs means that Arsenal can also leapfrog the North-West team and/or get much closer to our other London Top-four rivals.
In a nutshell, tomorrow’s game is a really BIG one. I don’t think Wenger will make changes to the team against the Spuddies; why would he?
So here is the line-up:
Arsenal have a great record against Burnley in general and have won the last six games in a row. But this means nothing tomorrow. The Clarets will be well up for this and have nothing to lose. With Sean Dyche Burnley have one of the nicest managers in the league and nobody has a better voice than him 🙂 . Dyche is clearly very talented, keeping Burnley in the league AND improving his team significantly so they could get so close to the top four this season. Nothing but respect for him and the club from me.
We need to start strong and play with focus, passion and energy for 90 plus minutes. A win would really (re)kick-start the season for us. Except for Cazorla everybody is fit, which is great news in late November and many games to come in quick succession.
But Burnley are up next and it is all about OGAAT!
Come on You Rip Roaring Gunners!!
