After picking up something resembling momentum over the last couple of away matches, Arsenal will hope to make the Emirates sing a happy tune when they host Burnley in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The Gunners, following three games without a win in the Premier League, finally found those three points coming their way courtesy a 2-0 win at Sunderland.

Alexis Sanchez was the main man for Arsenal in that match, punishing two individual mistakes, forced by his relentless energy and pressing, to give his team a much-needed win. Those three points came on the back of a dramatic come-from-behind win at Anderlecht in the Champions League and Arsene Wenger will be keen to see his team make it three wins on the bounce.

"[To go on a winning run] is what we want," said Wenger. "We won on the back of a difficult Champions League game away from home. If we can now win our games, the fact that we haven't lost a lot will help us in the league and that's our target.

Arsenal currently sit in fifth place on 14th points, and while that is a disappointing return from the North London club's perspective, it probably seems like heaven for Burnley at the moment.

The newly-promoted team have not been able to pick up a single victory in the Premier League this season, and are rooted to the bottom with four points from nine matches.

Wenger, though, knows all it takes is a bit of switching off in concentration from his team – something this Arsenal side have done too often already – and Burnley will be right there to punish them.

"They're still learning," added Wenger. "We have analysed them and we are really concentrating on moving on in this league. We know Burnley are difficult opponents -- much more difficult than the numbers indicate in the table. We will be focused and be ready for this game."

"We know that how well we do against teams like this at home will be vital. We did it well last season and we want to get back to that this season as well.

"They're quite dangerous going forward and they don't give many chances away if you analyse their numbers. We have to produce the same quality of performance that we did against Sunderland and then we will get there."

Team news: Arsenal: Jack Wilshere, after missing the last game through suspension, will not be available again with a knee injury, which Wenger described as "very, very short-term." The long-term injury victims – Olivier Giroud, Mathieu Debuchy and Mesut Ozil -- remain sidelined, while Serge Gnabry, despite returning to training is also out, along with David Ospina.

Kieran Gibbs, who had to come off against Sunderland, is a major doubt, but Yaya Sanogo returns. Wenger also insisted he will not start Theo Walcott against Burnley, with the forward, on his way back from ten months out, again likely to be on the bench.

Burnley: Sean Dyche will have the services of Dean Marney after the midfielder returned from a hamstring injury.

Expected lineups: Arsenal: Szczesny; Bellerin, Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal; Arteta, Ramsey; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Sanchez; Welbeck.
