Arsenal vs Burnley Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Arsenal are set to secure a comfortable home victory when they face Burnley in an English Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners tend to do their best work at home and are backed in the -1 handicap market at odds of 1.80. Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is also tipped in the goalscorers market having scored six goals in three previous matches against the Clarets.

Arsenal FC Form & Team 


Arsenal began their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 victory at Newcastle. After a goalless first half, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang scored on 58 minutes as the Gunners were held on for the win.

Unai Emery’s men have a good home record in the Premier League, winning 10 of their last 14 matches at the Emirates. A win on Saturday is priced at a minimal 1.25 but having scored 3+ goals in their last three matches against Burnley, I have gone for a handicap tip.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is already off the mark for the season and is set to retain his place in attack on Saturday. Alexandre Lacazette is also expected to feature having missed the win at Newcastle with a slight knock while Nicolas Pepe could be given a start after coming off the bench last time out.

Burnley FC Form & Team News 


Burnley impressed in their opening match of the season as they claimed a 3-0 victory at home against Southampton. Ashley Barnes netted a second half brace before Johann Berg Gudmundsson added the third on 75 minutes. 

The Clarets are attempting to move on from last season’s struggles and head to the Emirates of the back of three defeats in their last four EPL matches. They are not favoured to win at odds of 10.00 with a draw priced at 6.00.

Ashley Barnes should continue to lead the line for Burnley following his brace last time out. He is likely to be joined in attack by Chris Wood with Johan Berg Gudmundsson set to feature in midfield. 

Arsenal vs Burnley Head to Head 


Arsenal have a 44-28 advantage with 18 draws from 90 previous matches against Burnley. The Gunners have won the last six meetings, including a 3-1 victory in the corresponding fixture last season with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang netting a brace.

Arsenal vs Burnley Match Up


Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has a fantastic record in this fixture with six goals in three matches against Burnley. He was also on target last time out against Newcastle and will be the one to watch for Arsenal on Saturday.

Burnley often look to Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood for goals with both men forming a lethal partnership last season. With Arsenal expected to dominated the possession, both men could be starved of service on Saturday.
