Big game with United playing City this weekend. Three points would put us in a strong position to secure 2nd/3rd rather than fighting it out for 3rd/4th.

Burnley 5-0 Arsenal.

You know when you just get that feeling that it's going to be your day?

Admittedly, I've been known to get these things wrong in the past, but I've got a REALLY good feeling about this one.

Big test for Arsenal, away to relegation fighters at this point in the season is almost as tough as it gets, Arsenal now suddenly are in a battle for automatic CL qualification with an outside chance of the title so now a bit of pressure is back they could struggle. I am predicting a draw.

I don't know why but I've got a sudden urge to put £10 on Burnley to win 5-0!

Arsenal have improved a lot this season and seem to have ability to grind results out now ! Will be a good game to watch from a neutral point of view.

Burnley 1 - 3 Arsenal

Mum rang me about an hour ago to let me know they've re-ordered Sky Sports = I can watch the game through SKY go.

WHAT. A. LEGEND.

Nobody seemed to want to stick that in. Ramsey 1, every other Arsenal player 0.

Burnley allowing too much easy posession at the back. Everytime they get the ball, it seems Arsenal win it back in a sequence or two and don't show much attacking intent. Probably the best way to avoid conceding an equaliser, mind.

I think we're doing OK. Arsenal don't look too threatening, but at the same time neither do we. And considering they're one up, that suits them far more than ourselves.

Having said that, whilst it's only one goal in it we're in with a shout.

Yeah Burnley getting some joy down the left. Surely not though against Bellerin?

As soon as Burnely start threatening, Arsenal raise the level. Well-managed away fixture thus far.

Yes but while there's lots of lovely intricate passing from Arsenal around the box there's very little in the way of penetration or efforts on goal.

I prefer that while leading to our typical bombard forward and allow chances for the opposition to get back into it - suffocate the game. No complaints from this fan.

I'm not sure any fullback is a good defender by the standards held today. Anytime an oppenent attacks down one side, it's considered having "joy". Every team is stronger at attacking down one side than the other, thus the perception. Bellerin just turned 20; he's still learning positioning at the top level. He's earned the praise he receives.

Yeah that's fair enough, but I just think that it's not a case necessarily that you need to bomb forward. Ramsey was trying to work his way into the box with his play but the others were more intent on working the ball around the box. Welbeck is more direct though with his pace now.

Ozil back to win the ball outside the area and dribbles out of danger; the lazy flop.
