Arsene Wenger on Burnley and Olivier Giroud's goal-scoring record


Arsenal are to match Burnley's physicality if they are to take all three points from Saturday's game, manager Arsene Wenger has warned.

Unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games, the Gunners will be wary of the threat of the Clarets after they held Tottenham Hotspur to a goalless draw last week.

"Burnley is a tough test for everybody," Wenger said.

"You shouldn't look at the table because they started slowly but recently they have played very well against all the big teams in the league.

"They are quite efficient at home because they have made 18 of their 26 points at home and therefore we have to make sure we produce the expected performance on the commitment, on the focus and on the quality of our game.

"You have to be at their level of physical performance, because they will be there.

"On the rest, you want to produce the quality of performance that is expected from us on the technical side. You have first to fight with them physically, that's for sure."

Meanwhile, the Frenchman says striker Olivier Giroud is enjoying the form of his life ahead of the last part of the season.

"He has been in outstanding form since he came back," the Arsenal boss said.

"He has improved the quality of his game and we have plenty of strikers.

"I believe that the target of everybody when you wake up in the morning is to be better, to make sure that at night you are better than the day before.

"That's the essence of our job, to make sure that you improve every day. If you're not capable of thinking like that, you're in the wrong job. He has accepted that and he has the right focus every day to improve.

"[Beating second top scorer Ian Wright's tally] will be difficult. Wright and [Thierry] Henry are quite high up there so there's a long way to go.

"Olivier arrived a bit late as well but I wish him well and that he maintains this record first. After that, we'll see how far he can go."
