Arsenal.com's Nick Teale uses the Bettorlogic form lab to analyse the statistics ahead of this Saturday's Premier League clash with Burnley.
When he arrived at Turf Moor in January 2010, manager Brian Laws targeted Burnley's away form as a place where there was room for improvement.
But the Clarets have lost seven of their eight Premier League games under their new manager. Their solitary win came at home to West Ham at the start of last month.
Their form away from home has been poor all season and they have collected just one point on the road since gaining promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs last May.
On a positive note they do score 40 per cent more goals away from Turf Moor with Chris Eagles in the side. When the midfielder starts they average one goal per game compared to the team average of 0.71 goals per away game.
According to the Bettorlogic statistics Robbie Blake has made a difference when playing for the Clarets this season. Burnley have collected 30 per cent more points with him in the team compared to the overall team average of 0.85 points per game. Burnley haven't won any of the eight League games he has missed this term.
However, the striker hasn't scored a goal in 805 minutes of Premier League football - the equivalent of almost nine full matches. His last goal came on October 18.
Statistics don't always seem logical and an example of that for Burnley relates to Steven Caldwell. The Scotsman plays in defence for the Lancastrians but while they only concede five per cent fewer goals when he starts, they score 54 per cent more frequently, managing an average of 1.6 goals per game in the 10 matches he has started.
Nicklas Bendtner looks to have hit form with three goals in three games after netting a header for Denmark on Wednesday night. The striker has started seven times for Arsenal this season and the Gunners have won six of those games, a points-per-game improvement of 24 per cent on the team average.
