Burnley will look to end a run of nine straight defeats against Arsenal in all competitions when they host the Gunners on Sunday.

Arsenal will arrive at Turf Moor just three days on from an energy-sapping Europa League semi-final in Spain.

Manager Unai Emery could rest key players with Arsenal unlikely to make the top four and due to face Chelsea in the Europa League final later this month.

Burnley are 15th and have a chance of finishing one place higher with Clarets boss Sean Dyche keen to maintain a recent run of form that has seen his side collect 28 points from their last 18 matches.

“I think it’s impossible to not end on a positive note because of what’s happened in the second half of the season,” he said.

“We want to deliver a performance and we want to beat a top side, again.

It’s not that easy, but that’s what we want to do.

” Dyche will make a late call on James Tarkowski after he missed a few days of training due to the birth of his daughter.

Phil Bardsley, available again after being sidelined by a gashed leg, could come back into the matchday squad but Aaron Lennon, who has been recovering from knee surgery, will not be risked.
