Arsenal vs Burnley match preview for the Premier League fixture, written by experienced sports betting expert.
Saturday’s English Premier League action features an exciting clash between Arsenal and Burnley. ‘The Gunners’ started the new season with valuable three points. The fixture at ‘St. James’ Park’ with Newcastle was one of the weakest when it comes to quality in the first round. Both sides had just two shots on target, while one of them from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was converted into a goal for the final result of 1-0 in favour of Londoners.
Over a week ago, Burnley played at home against Southampton. The hosts left ‘The Saints’ to attack more during the first half, but they didn’t take advantage of this. In the second 45 minutes, ‘The Clarets’ started to play way better, and the four shots on target were enough for the final result of 3-0.
After the first week in English football, from the camp of Burnley, we can distinguish Ashley Barnes, who scored two goals against Southampton. During the last campaign, the striker scored 12 goals. In the first game of Arsenal, the right-back Ainsley Maitland-Niles and goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang played well and deserved to be mentioned. During the second half, the newly attracted Nicolas Pépé, Dani Ceballos and Gabriel Martinelli appeared on the pitch.
In the last several years, Arsenal don’t start the new campaigns well, but now they have to face two comfortable, at least historically speaking, opponents. It’s very possible Unai Emery to start the clash with Burnley with the trio Aubameyang- Lacazette- Pépé which means only one thing – goals. However, I don’t think ‘The Gunners’ will be capable of scoring a lot versus the solid defence of Burnley.
My Arsenal vs Burnley predictions are Arsenal to score 2 or 3 Goals at odds around 1.75. I will also back Arsenal 2-0 Correct Score at odds around 7.25. Bet Heaven recommends placing this bet at William Hill.
