Posted on December 14, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Former-Arsenal man Paul Merson has labelled the Gunners as ’embarrassing’ after they dropped below Burnley in the Premier League following the side’s 0-0 draw with West Ham in their last game.

It was their second draw in as many games and it has seen Arsenal floundering in the league once again. Their 1-1 draw with Southampton saw the side lose ground on those above them, while their 0-0 draw with struggling West Ham saw pressure pile on Arsene Wenger and the players.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to strengthen their position in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Gunners moved into the Champions League spots last time out by recording a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty from Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger’s side have been rather inconsistent of late. However, their recent Premier League form has been strong, as the Gunners have now won four of their last five games in the English top-flight.

Arsenal battled to a 1-0 win over Burnley in their Premier League encounter on Sunday as the Gunners made it two wins from two in the league. Following their victory, Petr Cech has claimed that it was “a big win” over Burnley, and hopes to carry on their good form.

It was hardly the most convincing of wins, but it displayed Arsenal’s newfound backbone as they were dominated in the first half before battling back in the second, as they dominated their hosts.

Arsenal battled to a 1-0 win over Burnley courtesy of the boot of Alexis Sanchez on Sunday as Arsene Wenger’s men continued their revival following their 2-0 win over Tottenham. While the win may sound routine, it is anything but.

Taking the scalp of Burnley used to be one of those wins that people would see and move on from almost instantly. Sean Dyche’s men, while renowned for their ability defensively, offered little else, with one goal usually able to settle a game against them.

Arsenal recorded a 1-0 win at Burnley on Sunday afternoon courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty kick from Alexis Sanchez.

The first real attempt on goal of the game came on seven minutes, as Alexis Sanchez saw a long-range effort deflect wide of goal.

Burnley saw a penalty appeal turned down on ten minutes. Robbie Brady crossed from wide and Ashley Barnes appeared to be bundled to the ground by Nacho Monreal.

The Clarets came close to taking the lead on 16 minutes. Winger Gudmundsson took on Monreal before hitting a powerful effort on goal that Petr Cech touched on to the post.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal face a tough trip to the north west to play Premier League surprise package, Burnley.

Burnley are enjoying a stellar campaign under highly-rated boss Sean Dyche. In fact, the Clarets are seventh place and level on points with the Gunners in the table. In fact, if results go Burnley’s way they could move up to as high as fourth in the Premier League table.

The Clarets are tough to beat and have lost just one of their last ten Premier League games, which came in a 3-0 defeat at runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Morale was high in the Arsenal camp following the inspiring 2-0 triumph in the north London derby against Tottenham but the Gunners failed to build the momentum having suffered a frustrating 1-0 Europa League loss in Cologne this week.

Arsene Wenger’s men must put the midweek disappointment behind them as there is a stern Premier League test ahead. The Gunners travel to Burnley on Sunday with Arsene Wenger expected to field a full-strength side after resting a number of star players for the trip to Germany.

Sean Dyche 33/1 to be next Arsenal boss as club legend champions his case 2

When club legends speak, it is hard to ignore them sometimes. Arsenal legend Ian Wright stated recently that he would take Burnley boss Sean Dyche as a replacement for Arsene Wenger, but that he believes Dyche is more likely to end up as England boss instead.

Sean Dyche is a very promising boss

For me, Sean Dyche has done an excellent job at Burnley. He has managed his resources and players superbly. The Clarets now look like an established Premier League side. The fact that they are unbeaten from away games at Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton is a testament to Dyche’s management.

Arsenal may be 90 minutes away from reaching their third FA Cup final in four seasons with a semi-final clash to come against Manchester City, but the Gunners are still keeping an eye on the Premier League top-four and will be hoping Burnley and Crystal Palace can do them a favour in their respective games against Manchester United (5th) and Liverpool (3rd), to give them hope of gaining ground.

Arsenal host National League Lincoln City at the Emirates on Saturday evening in the FA Cup quarter-finals, as the Gunners look to avoid a massive cup shock.

Arsenal head into this clash on the back of a 5-1 home defeat against German giants Bayern Munich in the last-16 of the Champions League. The heavy defeat meant that the Gunners lost the tie 10-12 on aggregate and led to more question marks over the future of boss Arsene Wenger.
