Burnley host Arsenal this afternoon and, despite a tricky start, Mark Lawrenson expects the Clarets to play out a 1-1 draw against Mikel Arteta's side.

Arsenal picked up their first win of the season against Norwich City last time out, while Burnley are still on the search for theirs as they look to leapfrog the Gunners.

Writing in his weekly prediction piece for the BBC, Lawrenson said: “Sean Dyche's new contract is great news for Burnley. They need him more than ever this season, if they are going to stay up.

“The Clarets played quite well against Everton on Monday, just like they did against Liverpool at the start of the season, but they did not get anything out of either game.

think that might change on Saturday, though. Arsenal got a first goal, and a first win, against Norwich - but this is going to be a very different game, and it will be a real test for them.”
