Burnley fans will be in dreamland right now. Looking at the Premier League table, they’ll see their side in the top seven and level on 22 points with Liverpool and their next opponents, Arsenal. Sean Dyche has done a brilliant job both this season and last; the Clarets look defensively strong and dangerous enough in attack to threaten anyone. Having beaten Chelsea and Everton as well as drawing with Tottenham and Liverpool this season, it is not out of the question that they could threaten an Arsenal side who have already lost away to Stoke and Watford this season.

The key to Burnley’s success has been their direct approach in attack, with Chris Wood a constant threat going forward. Traditionally, Arsenal have not dealt with those tactics very well and that is why we have given the hosts a chance of a low scoring victory. But the Gunners will be on a high after winning the North London Derby against Tottenham last week, and they should bring that confidence into this game and burst Burnley’s bubble.

Form

While Burnley were doing so well on the road earlier in the campaign, the one thing being levelled at them was a drop in their form at Turf Moor which, coincidentally, was the complete opposite to last season. Lately, though, they have found their feet at home, having beaten the likes of Newcastle and Swansea lately. Over the last six games, they have won four, drawn one and lost just one, which came away at runaway leaders Manchester City, a seemingly unstoppable force right now. They are also looking to continue a run of three straight clean sheets, with defenders James Tarkowski and Ben Mee having the best blocking stats in the league this season.

It has been a topsy-turvy season for Arsenal so far, but the mood has arguably not been better than it is right now. Like Burnley, the Gunners’ only defeat in the last six games came against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, and although they haven’t been consistently great in attack, with Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Özil and Alexandre Lacazette up front, Arsene Wenger’s side are capable of threatening anyone. This could be one of Burnley’s toughest tests of the season so far.

Team News

After picking up an injury on international duty with New Zealand, Burnley’s Chris Wood sat out the Swansea victory last weekend, but could be fit to make a timely return to the squad for Arsenal’s trip to Lancashire. Jonathan Walters and Tom Heaton are on the long-term injury list, while midfielder Jack Cork will not feature due to suspension.

Arsenal have no fresh injury worries, with Santi Cazorla the only absentee. Wenger is expected to name the same team that beat Spurs last week, with Özil looking to silence his critics again with another impressive display.
