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

Given Burnley's relatively small transfer budget compared to the rest of the elite, Wenger admits to being hugely impressed. "I thought we played very well in both and two big decisions went against us".

"That's a big strength".

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.

"This means they are calm, and they are patient, with that killing instinct of a snake. They put you to their face and then they bite you".

The win wasn't enough to elevate Arsenal out of sixth position in the Premier League but they have closed the gap on the top four, with second to seventh in the league separated by just four points.

Laurent Koscielny scored against Burnley last season.

Olivier Giroud has been used as a substitute on 10 occasions in the Premier League this season; more often than any other player.

This will be a tricky proposition for Arsene Wenger's men, who registered a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the north London derby last weekend.

"There are some kicks because it was quite a physical game [at Cologne], but overall we have no injuries. You have to be defensively strong as well because they are very efficient going forward". 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.

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.

Dyche added: "Tom is moving freely all the time and the actual internal side of the operation is fantastic - he's stronger now but with a keeper you've got to be even stronger".
