Arsene Wenger: 'Burnley are Premier League's surprise package this season'

Chris Wood ready to return as Burnley face Arsenal

The Frenchman has scored seven of his 13 league goals since the start of last season as a substitute (54 per cent).

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.

Arsene Wenger has taken his rotation policy to a new level this season, with a completely different Arsenal side playing in midweek games as opposed to our Premier League first XI, but this will have to take a new twist this coming week with 3 EPL games in the space of 6 days.

Read on for all the latest team news heading into Sunday's Premier League clash, complete with live-stream and television information, as well as a match preview.

Meanwhile, Burnley's absentees are Jonathan Walters, Dean Marney and Tom Heaton.

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).

The game is at Turf Moor and kicks off at 2pm.

Robinho sentenced to nine years in prison over sex assault
Robinho had previously been accused of sexual assault during his City days, but was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing. According to a report by Sky Sports , the 33-year-old star is now in Brazil , playing for Atletico Mineiro .

"I'll back Burnley to win [Sunday's] game they're in good form it's a hard place to go and you don't know what you're going to get out of Arsenal".

They did lose 1-0 away at Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday, but this was a result that meant little for the Gunners - being that they still wrapped up top spot in Group H regardless. If they think it's a lovely Sunday afternoon stroll in Burnley, there's only one victor, and that's Burnley. Sandwiched in between on Wednesday we have a considerably easier home game against Huddersfield, and this game must be where Wenger's rotation policy must come in to play.

Is Burnley vs Arsenal live on TV?

If Arsene Wenger's side don't turn up, they won't grind out a 1-0 win.

There are several explanations for Arsenal's set piece prowess, one of which comes in the form of France striker Giroud.

The fans were up for it, under pressure to perform, they rub their faces in it.
