Arsene Wenger ready for different kind of challenge against Burnley

Arsene Wenger ready for different kind of challenge against Burnley

The only absentees are Jonathan Walters, Dean Marney and Tom Heaton - whose deputy Nick Pope as impressed in-between the sticks for the Clarets.

Sean Dyche's men are astonishingly on level points with Arsenal, behind them on goal difference in 7th place in the table. They put their disappointing 3-1 defeat to Manchester City behind them and dominated Tottenham in a 2-0 victory last week.

Wenger will hope that record continues on Sunday when Arsenal face a Burnley side who are also known for their physical qualities all over the pitch.

Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott will be absent for the Gunners and Danny Welbeck is in contention despite coming off at half-time in Germany having recovered from a recent groin problem.

Burnley have won just one of their last 13 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions (D3 L9), winning 2-0 in a League Cup tie at Turf Moor in December 2008.

"We should benefit from the fact that we can rotate a lot in the Europa League and in the Premier League".

Meg Whitman to step down as CEO of HPE
In the current period, adjusted profit will be 20 to 24 USA cents a share, compared with an average prediction of 27 U.S. cents. Whitman did not tell employees why she made a decision to leave the CEO job or where she plans to go next.

"Both teams, every time they won the ball, went forward so the intensity was higher".

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.

Burnley have allowed their opponents more shots than any other side in the Premier League this season (209), but they have allowed their opponents the 3rd lowest quality of chance on average - 0.081 xG per shot faced, with historical data expecting that 8.1 per cent of these chances would be scored on average.

"Against Burnley, that will be different".

Not only that, but 12 of the 16 goals the Gunners have leaked have come outside the Emirates Stadium, meaning Burnley might well be considered favourites to take the spoils and move ahead of their north London foes. An fantastic pin-point cross for Olivier Giroud against Manchester United last season was a rare occasion where a long-range cross was converted.

"Two big decisions went against us previous year, but it's not about righting wrongs".
