LIVE UPDATES: Premier League (Week 13)

Man City top the table with 34 points Man City top the table with 34 points

Good afternoon and welcome to our LIVE match commentary of the Premier League clash between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor.

Arsenal will be looking for their seventh straight win over Burnley when they travel to Turf Moor today. The Gunners have won their last six meetings in all competitions against the Clarets, including the last two at Turf Moor in the Premier League by a 1-0 scoreline.

However, both meetings last season were decided by 90th-minute winners, and the two sides start this weekend level on 22 points, with victory for either side lifting them into the top four.

While the Gunners will be looking to build on their derby win over Tottenham, Burnley have won their last three games, plus they have already beaten Chelsea and drawn at both Liverpool and Spurs so far this season.

Arsenal made 11 changes for Thursday's match in Cologne and Arsene Wenger is likely to make a similar number of changes again today. Danny Welbeck is fit again and is likely to take his place in the squad after featuring in their Euopra League game on Thursday. Burnley striker Chris Wood is available after missing the win against Swansea, however, Jon Walters and Dean Marney remain on the sidelines with knee injuries.

Manchester City have won their last 10 Premier League matches on the bounce and have dropped just two points all season. Their only failure to win came against Everton in the second week of the campaign. Since then Pep Guardiola's men have been unstoppable, holding an eight-point lead at the top of the table.

Huddersfield's inconsistent form this season reared its head last week as the Terriers were hammered 4-0 by Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. David Wagner's men are still performing well this season and are sitting just below the top half of the table, but they cannot afford to enter a slump that could knock them off course. They face one of their biggest challenges this afternoon, although they did beat Manchester United on their visit in October.
