THE BIGGER PICTURE: The win over relegation strugglers Burnley pulled the Gunners level on points with Manchester Cit, with only goal difference separating the two sides at the top of the table. However, City have a chance to build up a gap when they play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge later today.

WHAT NEXT FOR RICE? With three points safely in the bag, Rice can rest up before heading to England camp for the Three Lions' final two Euro 2024 qualifying matches against Moldova and North Macedonia next week.
