Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal is put under pressure by Ashley Westwood (R) and James Tarkowski of Burnley (L) during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Burnley at Emirates Stadium on December 13, 2020 in London, England.

The Spaniard credited the Clarets for their longevity in the Premier League and applauded the challenge that they pose at this level.

The ex-Everton and Rangers midfielder, who ended his playing career with the Gunners, is yet to see his side score a goal against Burnley.

The visitors were held to a goalless draw in this fixture last season while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's own goal handed Sean Dyche's men victory at the Emirates earlier in the season.

Arsenal have not lost at Turf Moor in eight league meetings, dating back to December 1973, but a home win would see the Clarets complete a league double over their opponents for the first time since the 1962-63 campaign.
