BURNLEY will be the visitors to the Emirates Stadium when Arsene Wenger says goodbye to the Arsenal fans next month and Sean Dyche believes it will be a 'nice moment' to be involved in.

Wenger's final home in charge of the Gunners will be the May 6 date with the Clarets after the Frenchman announced he was stepping down after 22 years in charge at the end of this season.

Dyche paid a glowing tribute to a 'legend of the game' after hearing the news and he's looking forward to taking his side to north London in two weeks time.

"He’s a legend of the game, for all the questions marks, everyone will reflect on his time there. I’ll be amazed if there’s not documentaries about his time there," Dyche said.

"To have our little tiny piece of it, that is in itself a nice moment to be involved in for such a high profile and legendary manager."

Dyche has often spoken warmly of Wenger and he revealed that the Arsenal boss was always interested in the work he was doing at Turf Moor as well.

"He’s always been really open with us to speak to," the Clarets chief said.

"I’ve heard some times he’s not but with us he’s always been open, he invites us in down there, he’s quite inquisitive about our journey here and how we make the finance work and developing players.

"Likewise he's been in our managers' room here which is not always the case.

"It’s interesting when I spoke to him he was as intrigued in us, which at his level of the market was interesting, that he’s still asking me questions about what we do when usually it’s me asking those questions, he’s very open minded about what football is."

Burnley could yet be party poopers at the Emirates, with the Clarets still only two points behind Arsenal in sixth.

Asked about beating Wenger to a top-six spot, Dyche said: "Easier said than done. The way the season has changed is we’ve been a good story.

"We were second favourites to go down, then we get a good start by beating Chelsea, we carried that on, it builds and it gets to November people think we’re had a great start, then we keep it going to Christmas, a few question marks, we’re reverting back to type, but then we have another injection and win five on the trot and we’re on the back of a club like Arsenal.

"It’s been a good little story. If we can end it with a win against Arsenal at their place that would be nice."
