Ian Wright has warned Arsenal that Burnley will be tough opponents at Turf Moor on Sunday.

The Gunners will make the trip north looking to record successive Premier League victories for the first time this season.

Arsenal lost 3-1 loss to Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium before the international break to leave them four points adrift of Chelsea in fourth place.

However, Arsene Wenger’s side responded in style in the north London derby with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

The Gunners made the breakthrough in the first half after Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil teed up his compatriot Shkodran Mustafi from the free-kick.

Arsenal extended their lead thanks to Alexis Sanchez to give their top-four hopes a boost after moving to within a point of Tottenham in the race for the Champions League.

Burnley are in seventh place in the Premier League table but level on points with Arsenal following a brilliant start to their season.

Former Arsenal striker Wright warned that Wenger’s side can’t afford to take Burnley lightly given their record of one win in six games on the road in the Premier League.

“Burnley are in really good form,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Dyche is one of the managers of the season. His team is playing fantastic. It won’t be an easy one but it’s the kind of test Arsenal need.”
