Arsenal manager Arteta: I enjoy going to Burnley!

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is relishing Saturday's trip to Burnley.

Turf Moor is considered one of the toughest away grounds in the Premier League.

Asked why everyone dislikes playing at Burnley, Arteta replied: "I don't. I quite enjoy it because it's what the Premier League is about, going into those grounds and making it happen, being able to compete against a style that is very defined and executed to perfection. That's a big credit.

"There's not one or two ways to play football, there's many ways to do it. They did it within the rules and there's nothing that is outside them. They do it really well. From my side, they merit much more credit for what they do than what they sometimes do.

"It's admiration as a coach that he's able to get the best out of that group of players, the results that they have as a club, to create the atmosphere that they do at that stadium. It's all credit to them because they believe in what they do. I think that's really nice for the English Premier League."
