BURNLEY V ARSENAL MATCH PREVIEW

Home » BURNLEY V ARSENAL MATCH PREVIEW

Burnley might have claimed the scalp of Leicester City and Manchester United in recent league games, but we reckon that Arsenal should have enough in the tank to prove a cut above them yet again.

Premier League 2019/2020
Date: Sunday 2nd, February
Kick-off: 15: 00 pm
Venue: Turf Moor
TV Channel: Sky Sports

Burnley have noticeably turned a corner in recent weeks following a bad run which saw them lose four league games on the trot, but they have pipped Leicester and brushed past Manchester United in their last two.

The Clarets are placed 13th and continue to edge up the standings, and manager Sean Dyche will no doubt be targeting another giant-killing on home turf.

He will, however try to rally his side to come to the party yet, and the 2-1 loss to Norwich City here in an FA Cup game last weekend surely must have sullied the mood of the players after their applaudable run in the league.

Arsenal have looked pretty promising themselves, after having to ride the wave of some tough results in December last year, and are unbeaten in all competitions since the start of 2020 (W3, D3).

Mikel Arteta have got the Gunners trying to play good, fast-flowing football again, and the resilience he has instilled can not be starker. The Spaniard is not resting on his laurels, and have already pulled off a good piece of transfer business adding Pablo Mari to his defensive unit as he tries to strengthen the team’s rearguard even further.

You have to go as far back as 1974 to the last time Burnley managed a league victory over Arsenal, a period spanning over 14 league games! Over to you, Dyche.

Team news

Burnley

Dyche will be sweating on the fitness of the trio of Phil Bardsley, Johann Gudmundsson and Ben Gibson.

Ashley Barnes is ruled out again.

Arsenal

Shkodran Mustafi, Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney, Reiss Nelson and Sead Kolasinac are all sidelined for the Gunners.

The availability of the duo of David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after serving suspensions is a boost.

Head to Head

There have been 108 competitive meetings between the two teams in history, with Arsenal winning 54 to Burnley’s 33. 21 games have been drawn.

Match stats

There have been over 2.5 goals in the last four Premier League games between these two sides.

Arsenal have won their last 11 games against Burnley in all competitions.

Arsenal have scored at least twice in their last four games against Burnley in the Premier League.

Team form

Burnley will be wary of their latest opponents, who have proven by far to be their bogey side. They will have to pick themselves from the loss to Norwich City last time out. And quick, otherwise it could be just one of those days. Burnley’s last five league games (LLLWW)

Arsenal have drawn their last four away league games, and will have to turn the draws into wins in order to move further up the standings. Arsenal’s last five league games (LWDDD)

Suggested bets

Arsenal are heavy favourites to come away victorious from this one, having got the better of the Clarets for quite a long while. The return to action for Aubameyang will give the Gunners an extra boost upfront, as they target their fifth successive league double over Burnley. So I’d be taking their 1/1 odds for an outright win, or an even better 3/1 for both teams to find the net in an Arsenal victory.
