They have shown that they can match the bigger sides in the league and have beaten Chelsea and drawn against Liverpool and Spurs this season.

Arsenal and Burnley lie in sixth and seventh, respectively, although only the former are realistically hoping to push on and claim a top-four spot.

"Turf Moor is a very hard place for everybody", Wenger said.

Their home record is also very strong as well - they have lost just once this week, that coming against West Brom on the second matchday of the season.

Consistency has been the key to Dyche's success this season, not just where the form guide is concerned, but also in terms of his team selection.

Prediction: 0-0 Draw. Burnley have frustrated the Premier League's best already this season and they will feel that can do the same to Arsenal's illustrious side.

Two players have proven talismanic for them: Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette with Arsenal having won all five matches that the front pair have started.

It was a very disappointing defeat in Cologne last night for the Arsenal reserves, but we will be reverting back to our First XI that destroyed Tottenham last week for the trip to Burnley. This away form really must be changed and Burnley will be a very hard venue to get our season back on track and prove that last week's result was not a fluke.

Danny Welbeck, however, is pushing for game time after featuring as a substitute in Germany. Wood missed last week's 2-0 win over Swansea following his late arrival back from World Cup play-off duty with New Zealand, but is expected to replace Ashley Barnes in the starting line-up. Adding Chris Wood up top has worked well for them has he's notched three important goals since his move from Leeds as the players around him have started chipping in which has seen them win their last three games.

Arsenal will be looking to attack their opponents and consolidate their position among the Premier League's chasing pack, but Burnley's watertight defence will be up for the challenge posed by Sanchez and Lacazette. just about.

"These are the type of games where Arsenal prove themselves".
