​Burnley boss Dyche has Arsenal firm in his sights

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is not shirking from the challenge of trying to finish 6th in the Premier League this season.

Burnley are going through a wonderful season, and there is a chance they could finish in the top six if they can pip Arsenal before the season ends.

And as Dyche prepares for a game against Chelsea tonight, he has his eyes firmly on the prize.

"To be seventh is fantastic," said Dyche. "If we can attempt to chase down Arsenal - I don't think that would have been words I'd have been using at the beginning of the season - we will do."

Burnley are only two points behind Arsenal in the table. They have to go to the Emirates in the second last game of the season, which could decide sixth place.
