Arsene Wenger: This is why we should not underestimate the Burnley game


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned his players not be complacent as they prepare to face Burnley in the English Premier League.

The Gunners are third in the table after an impressive run of four straight wins including an easy 3-0 win against Chelsea.

And with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City set to face each other this weekend, Arsenal could close the gap from the top to just two points.

"We have to go into the game with the same commitment, the same focus that we had in recent games," Wenger explained.

"The danger from Burnley comes from the fact that they are very efficient in some aspects of their game, they are very well-organised defensively, they don't concede many goals at home and they've shown that against Liverpool and Watford.

"They're very dangerous on set-pieces and counter-attacks as well, so we have to prepare well.

"We've found a good balance between attacking and defending. Our drive is always to move forward but at the moment the team has more belief in what we want to do and the way we want to do things. That should keep the focus very high.

"Theo [Walcott] has added something to his game, firstly by a making a big resolution before the season started.

"He put a big effort into his preparation and he's transferred that now into his game. When he plays like that I can understand why our fans love him because he's playing so well."
