Kick-off is at 17h00  
Premier League title hopefuls Arsenal will be looking to build on their biggest win of the season when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday, February 17.
The Gunners demolished West Ham 6-0 at the London Stadium on February 11, scoring four goals in the first half alone to surpass their previous highest winning margin by one.
Mikel Arteta's side kept pace with Manchester City, who beat Everton 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium on February 10 to remain ahead of their title rivals on goal difference in second place.
LIverpool bounced back from a 3-1 defeat to the North Londoners with a 3-1 victory over the Clarets at Anfield to maintain their two-point lead at the top of the table, while Tottenham reclaimed fourth spot from Aston Villa courtesy of 2-1 triumph against Brighton in the capital.
Vincent Kompany's side saw Sheffield United go level with them on 13 points after running out 3-1 victors over Luton at Kenilworth Road and are only kept off the foot of the table on goal difference, with the Toffees six points clear of the bottom two in 18th position.

In team news, Charlie Taylor (shoulder) could return for the hosts, but Nathan Redmond, Jordan Beyer (both thigh), Luca Koleosho (knee) and Lyle Foster (knock) are all unavailable for selection. Jurrien Timber (knee) and Thomas Partey (thigh) remain long-term absentees for the visitors, although Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf), Emile Smith Rowe (ankle), Takehiro Tomiyasu, Fabio Vieira (groin) and Gabriel Jesus (knee) are on the verge of returning to action.
Kompany was buoyed by the performance of his players on Merseyside and believes the results will come if they continue to play at the same standard.
"I don't think we can throw away too much from this game. We have to take this game and there have been so many others where we have showed what we can do," the Belgian said.
"There's enough in our performances that can get us results and we aren't debating the performances, it's more just the moments and putting them together.
"This game has to give us the belief to carry on and there needs to be full belief to pick ourselves up and go again. We can't feel sorry for ourselves, if we perform, we can get the results."
Arteta insisted his players were determined to avenge their 2-0 defeat to the Hammers at the Emirates Stadium on December 28 as Arsenal recorded their biggest-ever away win in the Premier League.
"I felt that the team had the right desire, straight after Liverpool, because it was something still in their tummy about what happened with West Ham at the Emirates and we wanted to put it right," the Spaniard said.
"If you want to be at the top, we're going to have to be really consistent and play at that level, and we certainly did it today. It's really difficult to do what we've done today against West Ham away and really pleased with the performance collectively and individually and obviously the score tells you the story of the game."
