Mikel Arteta has warned his team of the danger Burnley possess and wants Arsenal to not get bullied by them.

Arsenal will take on the pitch to go up against Burnley tomorrow in their next Premier League outing.

With 30 points, the Gunners currently sit exactly in the middle of the league table. Also, they are tied with Burnley on points. A win in their upcoming match will help them somewhat better their position. However, a loss would see Burnley leapfrog them in the table.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Mikel Arteta has urged his team to be prepared for the problems that Sean Dyche’s men might throw at them.

“What they do, they do it really, really well and they’re specialists at that,” Arteta was quoted by Mirror.

“The type of game that they want to play makes it really difficult for the opponent. So we need to be ready for a battle, be clever and take the game the way we want. A lot of teams, they get bullied even if they believe they cannot be bullied.

“This is how good they are and this is their strength. So we have to make sure this does not happen.”
