Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hails Burnley as Premier League's SURPRISE PACKAGE

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hails Burnley as Premier League's SURPRISE PACKAGE

Dyche also reserved praise for Arsene Wenger, stating "they are a fine side with a brilliant manager".

Meanwhile, Burnley's absentees are Jonathan Walters, Dean Marney and Tom Heaton.

Provisional squad: Pope, Lindegaard, Lowton, Long, Mee, Taylor, Ward, Tarkowski, Bardsley, Defour, Brady, Ulvestad, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, Arfield, Gudmunsson, Vokes, Barnes, Wood.

They put their disappointing 3-1 defeat to Manchester City behind them and dominated Tottenham in a 2-0 victory last week.

Theo Walcott misses out through illness and despite returning to training the Englishman hasn't been deemed match fit.

Burnley have earned half of their points at home this season and have conceded only twice in six league outings at Turf Moor, while Arsenal have taken only four of their 22 points in away territory. Both teams, every time they won the ball, went forward so the intensity was higher.

Last season, Arsenal won both of their matches against Burnley (and the four in the Premier League before that), but they may find it a bit more hard this time around given their opponents' recent form.

Burnley have a good track record against the Premier League's big sides having already beaten Chelsea and held Liverpool and Spurs to draws this season.

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.

Chelsea are also now playing Liverpool, where the Blues are trailing by a goal, and should the result remain the same, a win for us would see us join both of those teams on 25 points.

Interestingly, the length of the pass or cross of headed goals scored for Arsenal is shorter than all other Premier League teams which perhaps pays testament to Wenger's intricate style of play, where the likes of Alexandre Lacazette nodded in his debut goal from a small Mohamed Elneny cross and Mesut Ozil has scored against Everton this season via a deft Alexis Sanchez effort.

Mesut Özil has created 30 goalscoring chances from open play this season in the Premier League; more than any other player.
