Arsenal.com's Nick Teale uses the Bettorlogic Form Lab to analyse the statistics ahead of Wednesday's game at Turf Moor.
It's 34 years to the week since Arsenal last took on Burnley in a top-flight encounter.
However the Gunners have faced last season's Championship play-off winners three times in cup competitions over the last two years.
Arsène Wenger's side were 3-0 victors in the FA Cup last term and also defeated the Clarets in the competition's Third Round in 2008. But a young Gunners side were knocked out of the Carling Cup at Turf Moor last December.
Since the start of the 2004/05 campaign Arsenal have lost just twice away at newly-promoted sides, scoring at an average of 2.44 goals per game in the process.
Captain Cesc Fabregas has more assists in the Premier League this season than anybody else and has only been involved in one Gunners defeat away to promoted sides.
Andrey Arshavin was Arsenal's Anfield hero on Sunday and when he starts the Gunners win 67 per cent of all away games, compared to the team's 47 per cent win rate since the start of the 2004/05 season.
In fact, of the three away games the Russian has missed since arriving at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal have picked up just one point.
But despite an impressive record away at promoted clubs, the Gunners are far from assured of victory on Wednesday evening. Only Wigan have left Turf Moor with three points this season.
Manchester United are just one of Burnley's home scalps so far. They have also defeated Everton, Sunderland, Birmingham and Hull while Fulham and Aston Villa only managed a point when they visited Lancashire.
Perhaps goalkeeper Brian Jensen is the key to Burnley's success. He was substituted 15 minutes into their only home defeat, a 3-1 reverse at the hands of Wigan. At that time, the scores were level at 1-1.
|Overall Club record||Record when Andrey Arshavin starts|
|Points per game||1.65||2.25|
|Goals per game||1.6||2.75|
|Goals against per game||1.04||1.17|
