Wenger sends message to Arsenal fans after 1-0 win over Burnley

EPL: Sanchez Late Penalty Fires Arsenal To 4th

Turf Moor has only seen seven goals scored in six Premier League matches this season; fewer than any other stadium in the competition. The hosts have been able to win six times, draw four games and lose just twice.

Arsenal will look to maintain their winning momentum in the Premier League when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

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. Rarely have players from the starting XI from each team overlapped, which has given all the players ample rest between games.

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.

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.

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?

A north London derby win over Spurs might have some convinced things are on the up for Arsenal, but let's not forget Wenger's men went two without a win just prior to that victory. If they think it's a lovely Sunday afternoon stroll in Burnley, there's only one victor, and that's Burnley.

These are the type of games where Arsenal prove themselves.

"It's nothing short of what I would expect", Keown wrote in The Daily Mail regarding Tottenham's win against Dortmund after the defeat to Arsenal.

The New Zealander missed the 2-0 victory against the Swans last Saturday after travelling over 24,000 miles with his national side as they failed to qualify for the World Cup after losing to Peru. It's all about consistency with Arsenal, the magic one.

"Every game gives you a different problem to sort out. They put you to their face and then bite you!" Now it's Burnley, who won't leave anything on that pitch.
