Arsenal will attempt to avoid equaling a 98-year losing record when they meet Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Despite edging past Norwich City last weekend, Mikel Arteta and his Gunners squad have endured a frustrating start to the season.

Arsenal endured a barren spell throughout August, losing out to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City without scoring a goal.

Should they lose in the same fashion against the Clarets, it will represent the first time since 1923 that they have opened a league season with three successive defeats and no goals.

Sixty-seven years have also passed since Arsenal lost their three opening matches on the road, records which may act as extra motivation to Arteta and his players.
