Arsenal vs Burnley prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Burnley

These two sides, who won well on the opening day, will both be looking to make it two wins out of two at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have actually won their last ten meetings against Burnley with the Clarets last league victory in this fixture coming way back in 1974.

Will Arsenal win again or will Burnley burst the bubble of optimism that those in North London currently cling to?

A very solid opening day win for Arsenal.

The Gunners were at St James’ Park to face Newcastle last Sunday in their 2019/20 opener.

In truth, it was the hosts had the better of the chances in a first half in which there were very few.

Then, on the hour, Ainsley Maitland-Niles latched onto a lose pass, brilliantly picked out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who poked the ball home.

1-0 to The Arsenal it finished.

That’s the first time Arsenal have won and kept a clean sheet on the opening day since 2008.

After this, Unai Emery’s side take on Liverpool and then Tottenham in the North London Derby.

That makes it absolutely paramount that they get maximum points from this fixture so will they do just that?

Burnley to spring a surprise?

As for Burnley, they too got off to a winning start.

Sean Dyche’s men welcomed Southampton to Turf Moor and, for over an hour, very little happened.

But then, the Clarets went on a scoring spree.

Ashley Barnes scored twice in seven minutes, both goals assisted by debutant Erik Pieters.

Five of Ashley Barnes’ 35 Premier League goals have come against Southampton (15%).

He’s also scored each of Burnley’s last four against Saints in the competition.

Then, with 15 minutes to go, Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson’s smart finish sealed a 3-0 win.

It took until September 22 for Burnley to win a league game last season but they’re off the mark straight away this time.

However, this will be a much tougher challenge.

But Burnley will be confident, so can they spring a surprise in North London?

Arsenal were certainly not at full strength last weekend at Newcastle.

They named two English teenagers, Willock and Nelson, in their starting XI for the first time since February 1998.

That was before either of those players were born.

However, many of their big stars should be back for this one.

Bernd Leno will be looking to add to his 10 clean sheets in 37 Arsenal appearances.

In defence, despite a very good performance last weekend, Calum Chambers is unlikely to keep his place.

David Luiz is expected to make his Arsenal debut alongside Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles will continue to fill in at right-back with Nacho Monreal on the other side.

Sead Kolašinac and Mesut Özil are available again after their security concerns.

In midfield, Mattéo Guendouzi will likely be alongside Granit Xhaka (who is an injury doubt) with Lucas Torreira not up to speed.

Dani Ceballos came on for his debut at Newcastle and is expected to come in for Joe Willock.

Out wide, club record signing Nicolas Pépé enjoyed a brief cameo last weekend but could start this one.

As could Alexandre Lacazette who would make up a frightening front three along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Since his Premier League debut, only Salah has scored more than Aubameyang’s 33 Premier League goals.

Also, in that time frame, Aubameyang has the best shot conversion rate (25.6%) of the 68 players to have scored six or more goals.

Do Arsenal pose too much firepower for Burnley to handle?

As for Burnley, consistency in selection is one of the traits of a Sean Dyche team.

He’s expected to name the same side that beat Southampton seven days ago.

Nick Pope is now the number one goalkeeper despite Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s arrival and the fact Joe Hart is still on the books.

In defence, Erik Pieters made his debut last weekend, registering two assists, and will keep his place ahead of Charlie Taylor.

Jack Cork and Ashley Westwood will continue in midfield.

Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson, who scored last weekend, and Dwight McNeil will once again be on the wings.

Summer signings Danny Drinkwater and Jay Rodriguez will be on the bench.

Up front, Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes will look to cause Arsenal problems.

Barnes has netted 35 Premier League goal for Burnley, 15 more than any other player for the club.

Will this side leave North London with a positive result?
