The Clarets are still rooted to the bottom of the table, but have four games in hand over 17th place Norwich City, and with just four points separating the two sides, Sean Dyche's side will be confident in their abilities to haul themselves out of the bottom three.

Speaking after their gutsy draw against the Gunners, Burnley's Connor Roberts said: “We battled for every ball, battled for every header, defended well as a unit and we deserved that, it’s a big point. You have to stay switched on, when you come up against a big club who enjoy a lot of the ball and I thought we did that really well today.

“Defensive wise we were solid, as a back five then the midfielders in front and the two up top, everyone stuck in, and it paid off for us in the end.

“We are at the bottom, there’s no hiding away from that. But the only way is up now, starting from today, fighting for every point and giving our all from now until the end of the season.”

He added: “Any point in the Premier League is a big point, we have come here after not playing for a while, me especially, so it’s really pleasing for us all.

“I haven’t played for a long time; it’s been quite stop-start since I came here. But to get out there today and get a start was unbelievable for me. I hope I made the boys in there, the coaches, the fans and the club proud today.”
