Burnley have lost nine straight head-to-head encounters with Arsenal but are desperate to end that hoodoo at Turf Moor on Sunday.

The Gunners have lost three of their last four Premier League away games, are all but out of the race for a top-four finish and will be tired from Thursday’s Europa League trip to Valencia.

Arsenal’s domestic campaign has fizzled out tamely and they would need a minor miracle to qualify for the Champions League by finishing in the leading quartet.

The Gunners suffered three successive Premier League defeats last month and were then held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton on home turf, despite going ahead early on via a contentious Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty.

That result left them three points adrift of fourth-placed neighbours Spurs – and with an inferior goal difference of eight.

“I think we worked and tried but didn’t get the result for taking chances next week,” said Unai Emery. “Now our way is to be strong in our focus for Thursday.”

The Gunners have already lost eight times on the road in this competition for them to go down 2-1 at Turf Moor is added to our Burnley vs Arsenal betting tips.

Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Sokratis, Lichtsteiner, Monreal, Mustafi, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Torreira, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Arsenal have no fresh injury concerns but, after securing their place in the Europa League final on Thursday night, Emery may shuffle his pack a little at Turf Moor.

Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) will not play for the club again, while Danny Welbeck (ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) are also out.
