Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hails Burnley as Premier League's SURPRISE PACKAGE

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.

"Turf Moor is a very hard place to go for everybody", said Wenger.

Sean Dyche's side go into the game against Arsenal off the back of three successive wins for the first time in their Premier League history.

The Gunners begin their hectic schedule with a trip to Turf Moor to take on the in-form Burnley, who are now in sixth place.

Goalkeeper Tom Heaton and forward Jonathan Walters are out with a shoulder and a knee problem, respectively, while midfielder Dean Marney is still recovering from a long-term knee issue.

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

Ahead of Burnley's clash with Arsenal on Sunday, Dyche explained, "I'm really pleased with how the team is performing at the moment but there is still a lot of work to be done".

Arsenal head into the game having beaten neighbours Tottenham in last weekend's north London derby, with Wenger making 11 changes to that side as the Gunners slipped to a 1-0 Europa League defeat at Cologne on Thursday.

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).

Arsenal will need to be on their game tomorrow-but the Gunners will certainly leave with the three points if play the way they did against Spurs last weekend.

But if Arsenal match their enthusiasm early on, I can see them winning.

It was Mauricio Pochettino's men who entered the game as favorites but ended up losing to Arsenal who did churn out a quality performance on the day.

There are several explanations for Arsenal's set piece prowess, one of which comes in the form of France striker Giroud. "They put you to their face and then they bite you". Now it's Burnley, who won't leave anything on that pitch.
