Few might have expected to see Burnley as high as seventh in late November, but what's concerning for the Gunners is the fact they're now level on points, making this one of the tightest top-flight clashes there's been between these two teams.
Laurent Koscielny scored against Burnley last season. That means the north Londoners have the sixth-worst away record in the Premier League this term.
Arsenal will be looking for their seventh straight win over Burnley when they travel to Turf Moor on Sunday. "Everybody's back and available now basically, so hopefully we can take advantage of that because the schedule is absolutely tremendous", Wenger said during his pre-match briefing, as quoted on Arsenal's official site. Do Arsenal turn up?
However, both meetings last season were decided by 90th-minute winners, and the two sides start this weekend level on 22 points.
They did lose 1-0 away at Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday, but this was a result that meant little for the Gunners - being that they still wrapped up top spot in Group H regardless.
Ahead of Burnley's clash with Arsenal on Sunday, Dyche explained, "I'm really pleased with how the team is performing at the moment but there is still a lot of work to be done".
Defeats to Liverpool and Watford this season were an example of how Arsenal have struggled against physical sides, with Hornets striker Troy Deeney describing Wenger's team as lacking "cojones" during his post-match interview after the two teams met in October.
Wenger's men are scoring headed goals from measured chips into a player rather than hopeful crosses or long balls into the box.
"The pressing the intensity of their game today".
The game will not be televised live in the UK.
However, the numbers down the opposite end of the pitch show that Arsenal have scored the most headed goals over the last two seasons and only eight teams in Premier League history managed to better their tally of 17 last season.
