Three facts about Burnley:

  • Burnley have not beaten Arsenal in the league since 1974 when they won 1-0 at Highbury.
  • Their last win against the Gunners was a 2-0 victory in the 2008 Carling Cup thanks to a brace from Kevin McDonald.
  • This will be the first time the sides have met since Arsenal won 3-1 at Emirates Stadium. Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott and Andrei Arshavin were on target for the Gunners that day.

 

George Boyd BurnleySTAR MANGeorge BoydBurnley stormed the Championship last season with a lethal strike partnership of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes. Now they are in the Premier League, Sean Dyche has had to bring in creative reinforcements to ensure the strikers are still getting good service. Former Hull City playmaker George Boyd meets that criteria. The enigmatic forward already has one goal to his name this season and Arsenal will have to be wary of how quickly he can spring a counter attack.
