The last time the two sides met, back in March, the Clarets held the Gunners to a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor, in a highly-entertaining game full of controversial VAR calls and player errors on the field.
Speaking after the side's 3-1 loss to Everton, talkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan spoke out in defence of the club, and contended: “Is it treading water or is it being among the elite clubs in the Premier League? It depends which way you want to look at it. They are in the top 20 clubs in English football and that in their own right there is something elite about it.
“I'd rather be a lesser-run Premier League club that survives every season than a brave Premier League club that gets it wrong and perhaps gets relegated back to the Championship and sees all the nature of football that - while it's still meaningful - isn’t quite the same excitement, quite the same exhilaration or quite the same feel.
“Burnley's main benefit is their association with the Premier League.
“They're very valuable to Burnley and they are very valuable to the community of Burnley and are a very valuable football club full stop. But the Premier League wouldn't be a poorer place if Burnley weren't in it.”
