The unfancied Clarets are level on points with the Gunners after 12 games, earning manager Sean Dyche recommendations for the vacant Everton job.
But the Englishman looks set to stay at Burnley for now and will test himself against Arsene Wenger and the Gunners for a place in the top six.

BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Arsene Wenger Arsenal
Arsenal are 4/7 favourites to win, according to dabblebet, with Burnley priced at 5/1 and the draw available at 16/5.
Burnley's ascent to seventh place in the Premier League is a remarkable achievement that still does not get its due.
Take some of the starters in Sean Dyche's most recent line-ups - such as Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Nick Pope, who have gone from Championship relegation with Charlton Athletic to the most lucrative league in the world.
Matthew Lowton had fallen out of favour at Aston Villa before Burnley picked him up. The two clubs have since swapped divisions.
Not many of Dyche's players were signed from other Premier League clubs but one of the few is Jack Cork, who had solid but unspectacular spells at Southampton and Swansea City but needed just four months at Burnley to earn an England cap.
Dyche, who was himself ditched by a Championship team before arriving at Turf Moor, has done a remarkable job of building a group that is far more than the sum of its parts.
They go into Sunday's match against Arsenal behind the Gunners and Liverpool only on goal difference and just two points adrift of Tottenham.
