Betting prediction: Burnley 0-2 Arsenal

Arsenal are in the driver’s seat when they head to Turf Moor for the early Saturday kick-off. The Gunners are coming off a full week of rest and a comfortable result against Leicester City, and a chance to set themselves up for another push in the Europa League beginning in midweek. Burnley, who has only tasted defeat once in their last six Premier League fixtures, is likely to keep faith in their strongest XI despite their paper-thin squad ripping at the seams. A fully-rested Arsenal should run out winners.

Burnley vs Arsenal: Recommended bets

Correct Score: Arsenal 2-0

Recent form suggests on the surface that this could end up a close one, with Burnley having a chance at getting something out of proceedings. Both sides have earned seven points from their last six fixtures, sharing an identical defensive record but with Arsenal edging them on goal return. But the Gunners fresh legs could – and should – prove decisive.

Halftime/Full-Time: Draw – Arsenal

To their credit, Burnley are one of the better sides in the Premier League when it comes to frustrating their opposition. Four draws in their last six, plus a 3-0 win against Crystal Palace, speaks to the Clarets’ penchant for being a bit negative if the net-gain is a positive one. It would be a typical display if they held on to a draw during the first half, only for the eventual quality and fitness level of Arsenal to kick-on as the match progressed.

Burnley vs Arsenal: Match preview

Sometimes it gets difficult to write about clubs that are seemingly unable to make progress on the pitch, offer something different, or be expansive in their play to any credible level. When it comes to Sean Dyche’s Burnley, there has been little to discuss when it comes to the Clarets and their ability – or lack thereof – in the final third this term.

With just nineteen goals in twenty-seven league fixtures, the Turf Moor outfit is the owner of the 2nd-worst goal output in the Premier League, just three ahead of bottom-feeders Sheffield United, and one behind 19th-place West Bromwich Albion. Some will look to their recent 3-0 win against Crystal Palace as an example of what they may be capable of, but considering that one match constitutes 16% of their total season output.

But perhaps the recent display of the center-forward pair of Matej Vydra and Chris Wood is something for the Burnley faithful to look forward to. The pair combined well quite a few times against Leicester in the Clarets’ 1-1 draw with the Champions League-chasing outfit. Boss Sean Dyche heaped praise on the duo recently, with the qualities of both players combining well on the pitch even though it was far from perfect given it was only their second time lining up alongside one another.

There is a feeling that they could potentially solve the riddle of how to get the most out of Burnley’s forward line for the remainder of the season. You cannot defend your way to safety, and even though Sheffield United was incredibly difficult to break down last season when they achieved a 9th-placed finish, they still found far more goals than Burnley has managed this time around. Should they prove effective for the duration of the campaign, it could be one of the key ingredients for a survival campaign that is still by no means won.

Campaign on two fronts could get tricky for Arsenal

There was a real opportunity for Arsenal to make a statement this season in Mikel Arteta’s first full year on the Emirates touchline, but the pendulum has not swung in the Gunners’ favor enough for tangible results to be had until recently. Their date with Olympiacos in the round of 16 of the Europa League signals a real opportunity for Arsenal to show their worth and that “trusting the process” is the way to go.

Plotting revenge against the side that knocked out Arteta’s men last season in the knockout stages of the same competition is surely the prime motivation of the Basque headmaster as Arsenal looks to salvage the overall optics of their 2020-21 campaign. But their performances in the Premier League have left them considerably adrift when you stack them up against their traditional domestic rivals. At the time of writing, Arsenal sits five points off Tottenham despite Spurs having their own struggles this term, but clash in the North London Derby next weekend in a bid to close the gap.

The Gunners also sit considerably further off the European places, territory they feel as though they should be occupying given the stature of the club. But they are nine points off fifth and the guaranteed Europa League place, and ten points off fourth, while also putting the balance of their resources into a push in the Europa League in the hopes it will give them a pathway back into Champions League football. It’s a big gamble, putting the majority of your eggs in a knockout competition that just has far too many variables that you cannot control.

What the Gunners can control is the remainder of their domestic campaign. Though improbable, a push for fifth or sixth in the league is mathematically achievable. Arsenal holds their destiny in their own hands as well, with dates against the aforementioned Spurs, West Ham, Liverpool, Everton, and Chelsea still to come. What’s more, is that the vast majority of the sides ahead of them in the table still have to play Manchester City. Points are sure to be dropped, and if the Gunners find a purple patch of form, both avenues to Europe could be open.


 

Burnley team news vs Arsenal

Sean Dyche will be without Ashley Barnes for Arsenal’s visit as the only guaranteed casualty.

Doubts still surround Jóhann Gudmundsson, Robbie Brady, and Matej Vydra, while Erik Pieters is back in contention.

Few changes are expected to Burnley’s matchday XI as they look to keep continuity while they hunt Premier League safety.

Arsenal team news vs Burnley

Arsenal and manager Mikel Arteta will likely be unable to call upon Emile Smith Rowe and Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson for the weekend.

With the Gunners pushing for Europa League success, a rotated “secondary” XI similar to that which won comfortably against Leicester City could be on the cards with the round of 16 ties against Olympiacos sandwiching the North London Derby next weekend.
