Turf Moor, Burnley
Burnley Team News & Preview
Burnley host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend and Sean Dyche’s side will be looking to build on their impressive 2-0 win over Watford in their last game.
However, they will be aware of Arsenal’s attacking talents and will need to improve defensively. They have conceded 7 goals in their last four Premier League games and that will be a major concern against the likes of Ozil and Sanchez.
Ashley Barnes is the only injury worry for the home side. Striker Andre Gray is suspended and will miss out as well.
The home side will be hoping to pull off another upset in front of their own fans after having beaten Liverpool earlier this season – Burnley are an impressive 1/5 to win or draw the game.
Burnley’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Heaton; Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward; Arfield, Defour, Hendrick, Boyd; Bamford, Vokes

The Gunners have won five of their last six matches in all competitions and are likely to add to that this weekend.
Francis Coquelin picked up a knee injury in the 3-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend and will be out for a few weeks.
Aaron Ramsey isn’t due back until after the international break.
The likes of Gabriel, Danny Welbeck and Per Mertesacker and Jenkinson are still sidelined.
