Arsenal must put their north London derby victory behind them as they face a stern Premier League test away at Burnley on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger’s Gunners rose to the occasion last Saturday to record an impressive 2-0 derby victory over Tottenham at the Emirates, but they followed that up with a disappointing 1-0 Europa League defeat in Cologne on Thursday night.
Wenger rested a number of star players for the trip to Germany, but Sunday’s return to domestic action represents a chance for Arsenal to prove they can add consistency to their game.
While the Gunners will be confident heading to Turf Moor, Sean Dyche’s Burnley are in fact level with the Gunners on 22 points having won their last three games, and have beaten Chelsea and drawn against Liverpool and Manchester City this season.

Burnley host Arsenal at Turf Moor with kick-off scheduled for 2pm on Sunday, November 26.
Following midweek disappointment in the Europa League, Wenger will likely revert back to the same starting XI which beat Tottenham last weekend.
Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette are set to spearhead the attack at Turf Moor, while Danny Welbeck is back in contention after completing 45 minutes against Cologne.
Theo Walcott is a slight doubt due to illness, while Santi Cazorla remains out with a long-term Achilles injury.
Burnley starting XI: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, Gudmundsson, Defour, Cork, Brady, Hendrick, Barnes
Arsenal starting XI: Cech; Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal; Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac; Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette
