Arsenal vs Burnley predictions: Arsene Wenger’s last match at the Emirates preview and likely line-ups

101 Great Goals prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Burnley

Arsenal to beat Burnley 2-0 is 15/2 with Bet365

Arsene Wenger took charge of Arsenal for the first time on the 12th October 1996. The Gunners won 2-0 that day away at Blackburn Rovers courtesy of an Ian Wright double.

Wenger’s first home match as Arsenal manager ended in a 0-0 draw against Coventry whilst his first home match at the Emirates ended in a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.

Sunday 6th of May 2018 will be the last time that Arsene Wenger manages an Arsenal match at the Emirates Stadium and despite his players seriously letting him down on Thursday night in Madrid, they should be able to beat Burnley and give Wenger a tremendous send off.

Arsenal vs Burnley: Who will win?

Arsenal are strong favourites, at 1/2 to win this match against Burnley.

Sean Dyche’s side are rated at 6/1 for a win at The Emirates.

First goal scorer tip: Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is is 12/5 with Bet365

Arsenal vs Burnley match preview

All eyes will be on Arsene Wenger throughout the duration of the match but the players on the pitch will have the final say.

Arsenal are just three points above their opponents, albeit with a game in hand, but judging by Arsenal’s abysmal form, they could still finish below The Clarets if they are not careful.

A win for the hosts would secure a top 6 finish, the lowest that Arsene Wenger will ever oversee as the Arsenal manager.

Burnley have secured their place in Europe next season but Sean Dyche would still love to cause an upset on the day where the footballing world will celebrate Arsene Wenger.

Wenger has traditionally not enjoyed his landmark matches losing his 500th and 1000th games in charge whilst also falling to defeat on Thursday night, his 250th game in European competition.

Arsenal have won just three matches away from home all season, one of which did in fact come against Burnley.

Burnley have picked up more than double the amount of points than Arsenal have away from home this season but have never won at the Emirates.

Arsenal team news

Santi Cazorla is back in training and could well sit on the bench for The Gunners this weekend.

Arsenal’s official captain, Per Mertesacker is also retiring at the end of the season and he will say an emotional farewell to the Arsenal fans on Sunday afternoon. For that reason, it is likely that the big German will sit on the bench and perhaps be given a few minutes at the end of the match.

Mohamed Elneny is out of action for the rest of the season but he is fighting to be fit for the World Cup.

Laurent Koscielny is the only other man missing for Arsenal after he suffered a horrible achilles injury in Madrid on Thursday.

Burnley team news

Burnley are without a handful of players for Sunday’s trip to North London.

Robbie Brady, Jon Walters, Scott Airfield, Steven Defour and Ben Mee are all ruled out of action for the visitors.
