Arsenal plays their first home Premier League match on Saturday at the Emirates and will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the new season.
Arsenal does have every advantage it must be admitted, their opponents have lost their last nine Premier League games against the Gunners and have not won at Arsenal since 1974.
But as we all know, that will count for nothing once the game gets underway and it would be foolish to ignore the dangers that the Clarets pose.
Here are four big dangers that Burnely brings to the game.
The 29-year-old may not be the most prolific scorer in the Premier League, but he found the back of the net twice against Southampton last week and if the Arsenal defence loses any concentration he will pounce. He is in form and full of confidence and will be a significant danger to Arsenal the whole game.
He may be just a defender but the Clarets new summer signing provided both Barnes goals and while the first one was a bit of a hoof the ball pass, the second one was a great cross from the left-hand side. He is not an out and out wide player but cannot be allowed space to send in crosses.
Physical and intimidating play
We are not talking Stoke City here, Burnley are far more refined but they do have a strong physical presence and they do like to send the ball high. They will provide a far sterner test for the Arsenal defence than Newcastle did that is for sure. The Clarets will close the ball down far quicker and look to use the high ball as often as possible.
You have to expect that Arsenal will be dominant going forward and whatever team Unai Emery puts out it will be attack-minded. The use of wing-backs always runs the risk of leaving the centre backs exposed and Burnley will definitely look to use the counter-attack as often as possible.
There are other dangers, however, the two players named above, the physical attributes of Burnley and the counter-attack strategy, in my opinion, are the biggest dangers Arsenal will face on Saturday.
