Burnley v Arsenal preview: Gunners look to build on Tottenham win

Sean Dyche claims there is

Sean Dyche claims there is"still a lot of work to be done for his Burnley side

Giroud, Per Mertesacker, Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Danny Welbeck add significant height to the Arsenal team and perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that they score so many headers.

"The intensity of the game was total because both teams went for it", he said.

Sean Dyche's side go into the game against Arsenal off the back of three successive wins for the first time in their Premier League history.

Ahead of the contest in Lancashire this weekend, Arsenal opted to throw some shade the way of their high-flying Premier League counterparts by asking their supporters to vote for which strike against Burnley they considered to be the best. Rarely have players from the starting XI from each team overlapped, which has given all the players ample rest between games.

Conte admits Courtois contract frustration
The Brazilian has showcased his quality time and time again throughout his 200 appearances for Chelsea . Chelsea appear to be reluctant to go that high, or at least were at the end of last season.

The Gunners play 13 times in the next six weeks with Europa League and EFL Cup games interspersed between a busy league schedule.

Dean Marney and Jon Walters continue to make steady progress from their respective injuries while Dyche's desire not to rush England goalkeeper Tom Heaton back from his shoulder operation is made easier by the continued fine form of his understudy Nick Pope.

Arsene Wenger believes his Arsenal side will be taking on the "most unexpected team" in the Premier League when they travel to Burnley on Sunday.

For Arsenal, things are looking up following their 2-0 win over Tottenham last Saturday.

Sourav Ganguly recalls Greg Chappell spat, says 'individual sports a lot better'
He's a lot more expressive and proactive as captain than Sachin. "In my first Ranji Trophy game I got only Rs 400". A hundred at Eden (104* vs Sri Lanka) on that sort of a pitch, you could see his expression.

Arsenal won both Premier League meetings with the Clarets last season courtesy of 90th-minute winners - only the second ever occasion of a team doing this home and away against the same opponent in the competition (after Manchester United v Manchester City in 2009-10). Do Arsenal turn up?

Arsene Wenger is hoping that Arsenal's rotation policy will keep them on good stead going into what is one of the busiest periods of the Premier League campaign.

And Wenger believes that it could prove to be a massive advantage going into festive period when Arsenal are likely to be playing nearly every three days in the coming weeks.

But if Arsenal match their enthusiasm early on, I can see them winning. "They put you to their face and then bite you!" The win over Spurs should change the attitude of some of players, you'd like to think so, but you can't find two games that are more chalk and cheese; home to Tottenham and away at Burnley. Spurs did, big players didn't turn up.
