Tonight, in my opinion, is a bigger test than Liverpool were on Sunday.
On paper you would say that Liverpool at Anfield would be a harder game than against Burnley at Turf Moor but football is not always that straight forward!
An away game against the likes of Burnley in the cold month of December is one that Arsenal have struggled with in recent years. To prove that we are genuine title contenders, and I believe we are, we have to win tonight.
Nothing other than a win is acceptable. I'm not saying that Arsenal have a divine right to win, and I know for a fact that Burnley will make it extremely uncomfortable, but it is no good getting a fantastic result at Liverpool and losing or drawing tonight because it makes that vital win at Anfield pointless.
Burnley will be up for this. Games against the likes of Arsenal are their cup finals and we have to match their commitment. If we don't then I shudder to think what could happen.
In recent times I've always worried about Arsenal when we face games like the one tonight. We have been vulnerable.
I hope the Arsenal players don't turn up and think that just their very presence is enough to win the game because we have made that mistake in the past and paid for it. We have to want the win and want it bad.
I've backed this squad from the beginning and I thoroughly believe that come the end of the season we will still be challenging for the Premiership crown. Despite title's not being decided in December, tonight will provide a real test to this Arsenal side's title credentials and it's a test we must come through.
