Matt Lowton: Burnley targeting home comforts


Share this story

Burnley defender Matt Lowton believes Arsenal will fear travelling to Turf Moor on Sunday as they look to build some momentum on their own patch.

The Clarets have enjoyed a hugely positive start to the 2017-18 campaign, having already beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, while they have also drawn away at Liverpool and Tottenham.

Burnley head into Sunday’s meeting with Arsenal sitting seventh and just one place behind the Gunners on goal difference alone.

Manchester City are the only club in the Premier League to have lost fewer games than Burnley, who have fallen to just two defeats at the hands of the league leaders and strugglers West Brom.

The Lancashire side have been much improved on the road this term but Lowton insists they are looking to boost their fortunes on home soil after winning their last two outings at Turf Moor.

Lowton feels Arsenal, who lost to Koln in the Europa League on Thursday, will be worried about making the trip up north.

“The thing is that they won’t want to come here. We’re trying to bring that fear factor back here and we’ve won the last two games with clean sheets,” Lowton said.

“They won’t be looking forward to coming here. It’s another great chance for us to get another three points.”

Burnley are priced at 6.00 to claim all three points on Sunday, while Arsenal can be backed at 1.57, and the draw is available at 4.20.
