Former Stoke City striker Cameron Jerome has tipped Burnley to overcome Arsenal in today’s Premier League clash at Turf Moor.
Jerome stated this in an interview with talkSPORT, where he said that Burnley will fancy heir chance of upsetting the Gunners at home.

Besides, the Gunners recent poor form in the EPL this season have also put Arteta battling for his job.
However, Jerome said that Burnley will come pretty hard on Arsenal today.
“It’s definitely a potential banana skin for Arsenal,” Jerome told talkSPORT of the trip to Burnley.
“The game on Saturday [versus Norwich] would’ve done a world of good in terms of confidence but you expect them to win that game and more by a one goal scoreline.
“But Burnley away is the last place you want to go against an organised, well-drilled Sean Dyche team who put loads of balls in the box.

“The perception is that Arsenal are a soft touch, the [Stoke] fans played off that, the players fed off that, the resentment between the fans after the unfortunate incident with Aaron Ramsey and then the comments that [Arsene] Wenger made about the football club after.
“The fans were so engaged, it was the match they were the loudest at, they came the earliest to.”
