That shock result greatly boosted the Clarets’ survival hopes and they come into this tie with their heads just above water in their battle to avoid relegation.

Whether Burnley can pull off another surprise win over the Gunners remains to be seen – but Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will be determined to see this game off early. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Burnley v Arsenal on TV and online.

Our prediction: Burnley v Arsenal

Arsenal are favourites heading into this encounter and luckily for Arteta the boss has a near-fully fit squad to choose from.

Yet even with the abundance of talent at his disposal it didn’t prevent Burnley snatching a 1-0 result at the Emirates back in December.

On paper, Arsenal should win this tie comfortably. They could blow Burley away or end up in a real scrap. The Clarets will battle for every ball but the visitors should edge it.

Our prediction: Burnley 0-2 Arsenal (7/1 at bet365)
