Arsenal fan Andre Gray: Burnley confident of chances against Gunners
Boyhood Arsenal fan Andre Gray believes the Gunners will be wary of Burnley when the two teams meet on Sunday.
Burnley head to the Emirates Stadium for the Premier League clash full of confidence, currently sitting 10th in the table, 10 points clear of the relegation zone.
It is 12 months since Sean Dyche's team last visited the Gunners, in the fourth round of the FA Cup, and it will provide Gray with another opportunity to feature against the club he supported as a boy.
"I've always followed them but it changes a lot when you become a professional footballer and you're having to play -- you become more of a follower than a supporter," he said.
"We'll go there with a lot more confidence than we did last year so we're in for a good game. A lot has changed. We've become better, we went on an incredible unbeaten run after that and got promoted. Now we're 10th in the Premier League so I'm sure they'll be wary of us."
Gray's recent form, which has seen him score five goals in his last six games, has led to rumours of interest from fellow Premier League club West Ham.
However, Gray, who moved to Burnley from Brentford in August 2015 for £6 million, says he is content with life at Turf Moor.
"I'm happy," he said. "We're 10th in the league and I'm playing football and scoring goals -- I don't think I could be in a better position.
"It [speculation] is just what happens. If I didn't score that hat trick the other week [against Sunderland] then you might not hear my name. That's just the way that football works, I suppose.
"It's always good to hear your name mentioned in the right way but I'm happy here and I'm settled here. We're 10th in the league and flying high. It's just part and parcel of football."
