Paul Merson believes Arsenal will follow up their north London derby win with a 3-1 victory at Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Premier League leaders Manchester City with an impressive performance against Tottenham Hotspur.

Goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez sealed three points for Arsenal in a 2-0 win over Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs outfit.

Mesut Ozil scooped the man of the match award for his dominant display as the attacking midfielder pulled the string in the Arsenal team.

The Gunners will make the trip to Sean Dyche’s impressive Burnley side at Turf Moor in their next Premier League game on Sunday.

Burnley have already beaten Chelsea in the Premier League this season as well as collecting points in draws at Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson believes Arsenal will ease to a comfortable win against Burnley as long as Arsene Wenger’s men are switched on.

“Burnley will cause Arsenal problems, but I’m going for a 3-1 away win. Do Arsenal turn up?” Merson told Sky Sports.

“Arsenal surely know they’re going to be in a battle, and if they know that they’ll win.

“If they think it’s a lovely Sunday afternoon stroll in Burnley, there’s only one winner, and that’s Burnley.

“But if Arsenal match their enthusiasm early on, I can see them winning.”

Arsenal are looking to reclaim a top-four spot this season following a fifth-place finish last term to miss out on the Champions League.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 but have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons.
