Burnley vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Burnley welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor on 26/11/17 as 7th plays 6th in the Premier League this weekend. Burnley won 2-0 at home to Swansea City last weekend, while Arsenal lost 1-0 to Koln away from home in the Europa League on Thursday. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Burnley have been excellent this season, being fully deserving of their current place in the top seven. It’s become typical of Arsenal to undo a positive result with a below-par performance and I can see them being held by the Clarets this weekend.

Burnley double chance - 8/5
Under 2.5 match goals - 11/10

Burnley saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played against Arsenal

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played against Burnley

Burnley Preview

Sean Dyche’s stock continues to climb towards an all-time high, as the Burnley boss guided his team to a comfortable 2-0 victory at home to Swansea City to stay level on points with Liverpool and Arsenal. Burnley have gone from strength to strength this season and this was a performance befitting a side that harbour ambitions of finishing in the top-seven as they confidently dismissed their weaker opponents. Jack Cork got the ball rolling at Turf Moor, starting and finishing the attack as he headed in Robbie Brady’s cross to get one over his former side that sold him in the summer. Ashley Barnes was handed a start by Dyche - just his second of the Premier League season - and vilified his manager’s faith in him by rifling home his first league goal of the campaign five minutes before half-time. One of the most impressive aspects of this Burnley squad is the way they have responded in the face of adversity, having lost Michael Keane and Andre Gray to Everton and Watford respectively and Tom Heaton due to a dislocated shoulder, both of whom were vital to their success last season. Credit must also go to Dyche for his trust in the likes of Nick Pope, James Tarkowski and Chris Wood, who have helped not only fill the void of previously key components but aid Burnley surpass the levels reached last season. With three wins on the bounce heading into this game, they will feel they owe Arsenal one after the controversial manner of the Gunners’ win at Turf Moor last season.

Burnley Team News

Tom Heaton (dislocated shoulder) and Jonathan Walters (knee) are long-term absentees for Burnley.

Arsenal Preview

Despite still not winning a game in the Bundesliga this season, Koln defeated already-qualified Arsenal 1-0 in the Europa League following a flat performance from Arsene Wenger’s much-changed side. No players who started in the north London derby featured in Germany on Thursday night and the lack of cohesion in the side showed, with the team conceding the game’s only goal in the 62nd minute. Sehrou Guirassy scored from the penalty spot to secure a rare victory for the Bundesliga side, with those on the periphery of the Arsenal squad doing little to stake a serious claim for a place in the side. However, in the grand scheme of things, this fixture meant very little to this Arsenal side, who had already qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League before their trip to Germany and the mood amongst the squad must still be buoyant following their victory over Tottenham last weekend. Arsenal have really struggled away from home this season, winning just one of their six on the road in the Premier League, with that coming against a poor Everton side. It’s ultimately been their home form that has kept them in the mix for the top four thus far, after winning six in a row at the Emirates this season, 11 in a row stretching back to last term.

Arsenal Team News

Santi Cazorla (achilles) is ruled out for Arsenal and is their only injury concern.
