Arsenal head into tomorrow’s clash with Burnley as heavy favourites, having won their last seven games in the Premier League. Not only are they the form team in the English top flight, but they have come mightily close to being the best side in Europe during this calendar year.
The Gunners have only dropped points on two occasions in 2015 – helping them to second place in the table – meaning that they have taken on average, exactly two a half points per game. Only La Liga leaders Barcelona can boast a better average since the turn of the year. Luis Enrique’s men have taken a staggering 2.57 points per match.
What may also please Arsene Wenger is the lack of the any other English side in the top five, perhaps strengthening their title beliefs, heading into the crucial last part of the campaign.
Italian giants, Juventus currently sit in third, on 2.38, and are thus well on course for another Scudetto.

Two Bundesliga sides complete the shortlist, but perhaps surprisingly – based on their ten-point lead at the top of the table – neither is Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich. Instead, their nearest challengers, Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach round off the top five, both averaging 2.3 points per match.
