Arsene Wenger Confirms Arsenal Star Will Miss Trip to Burnley This Weekend

Arsene Wenger Confirms Arsenal Star Will Miss Trip to Burnley This Weekend

The Gunners have won their last six against the Clarets but the last three have only come by a single goal and in the reverse fixture last season Laurent Koscielny appeared to be offside when the victor went in off his elbow with the last kick of the game. Here is all you need to know as Burnley host Arsenal. Their 3-2 win over Chelsea was seen as a bit of a fluke at the time but nothing could have been further from the truth and their 1-1 draws against Tottenham and Liverpool once again showed their talents against the Premier League's elite.

Dyche is looking for revenge on Sunday after Arsenal stole the points late in the day during both fixtures last season.

Jon Walters and Dean Marney are making steady progress with knee injuries but are not ready to figure, while goalkeeper Tom Heaton is still out after his shoulder operation.

Sunday, November 26 at Turf Moor at 2pm.

Arsenal have won their last six meetings in all competitions against Burnley, including the last two in the Premier League at Turf Moor by a 1-0 scoreline. 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.

"They didn't turn up against Arsenal, and admittedly Dortmund aren't the team they were, but they'll be feeling great after coming back from a goal down".

Burnley have made just nine changes to their starting XI overall in the Premier League this season and have used just 17 different players - fewer than any other team.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has previously been accused of not spending enough time on the training ground practicing set pieces, but statistics from the past two seasons suggest that the Gunners are dispelling the myth that Wenger's side don't score enough headers.

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.

Mesut Ozil is the top Arsenal assist maker since the start of last season and it's worth noting that he has created 30 goalscoring chances from open play this season in the Premier League; more than any other player.
