Arsenal finally got their first win of the Premier League season against Norwich on matchday 4. The team’s 1-0 win was highly praised by manager Mikel Arteta as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the game’s only goal. Despite winning the game, Arsenal recorded 30 shots, but managed just one goal. It is a damning stat to a team that has struggled to start the 2021-22 season.

Burnley vs Arsenal Match Preview

Next up for Arsenal are Burnley. The Clarets have taken just one point from 12 possible and are coming off of a 3-1 away loss to Everton on Monday night. Burnley have looked good in spells this season, but haven’t been able to stretch their good play across a full 90 minutes. Goalscoring remains an issue for Burnley as just three goals have been scored by Sean Dyche’s team.

Burnley took points off of Arsenal in each of the last two matches the teams played at Turf Moor. In 2020-21, Burnley snatched a nil-nil draw against the Gunners. A season ago, Burnley drew 1-1 with Arsenal with both goals coming in the first half.

Arsenal have struggled at Turf Moor and away from the Emirates this season. Will Arteta’s team fail to win at Burnley for a third straight campaign?

Burnley vs Arsenal Betting Odds

 

 

Burnley’s only point this season has come at home. The Clarets drew 1-1 with Leeds United on matchday 3. Dyche’s team is low on quality, especially in the final third. The team did sign Maxwel Cornet from Lyon in the transfer window. The left-sided player did not get onto the pitch against Everton on Monday, but did make the bench. Cornet is a player that could add some quality to the Burnley starting XI.

 

Leading sportsbooks have Burnley at the best betting odds of 14/5 to win at full-time against the Gunners. Burnley and Arsenal have drawn their last two matches at Turf Moor. The teams’ best betting odds to finish the game in a draw are at 13/5.

Arsenal’s win against Norwich City saw them tally 30 shots. Scoring just once while tallying 30 shots isn’t a great stat for the Gunners. Arsenal have lost twice on the road this season and have failed to score goals. The Gunners have conceded seven times away from the Emirates.

Leading bookies’ best betting odds for Arsenal to win the match at full-time are at 21/20. The 2018-19 season was the last time Arsenal defeated Burnley at Turf Moor. The match ended 3-1 in the Gunners’ favour.

Burnley vs Arsenal Team News

Cornet could start against Arsenal on the left side of the team. The former Lyon player can play as either a left-back or left midfielder. However, Cornet starting at left midfield would force Dwight McNeil to the bench – or the right side. McNeil has been Burnley’s best player this season. Still, like the Burnley team as a whole, McNeil hasn’t put together a strong 90 minutes.

Defender Nathan Collins is a doubt for the game after recovering from an injury. Connor Roberts is ruled out with a groin strain. Dale Stephens is ruled out with an ankle/foot problem. Kevin Long is also ruled out of the fixture following a calf injury.

Arteta has three players on the injury list. Granit Xhaka is expected to miss the game due to quarantining. Mohamed Elneny has a thigh injury and is ruled out of the match. Defender Rob Holding is nursing a knee injury and is a doubt to play.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is coming off of scoring Arsenal’s first goal of the season. Arsenal have posted an xG of 4.46 while scoring one goal this season. The team has an xGa of 10.58 while conceding seven times to opponents.

Half time result: DRAW @ 23/20 - BET NOW

 

 

Five straight matches between Burnley and Arsenal ended with draws at halftime. Our betting tips prediction is for the teams to continue the trend with a halftime draw. Neither side is scoring many goals and their poor goalscoring form should continue. Burnley have scored just three times in four games while Arsenal have scored just once in four league matches.

 

Under 2.5 goals scored @ 5/6 - BET NOW

 

 

Three straight Premier League games between Burnley and Arsenal ended with under 2.5 goals scored. The trend should continue as Burnley and Arsenal struggle to get goals at Turf Moor on Saturday. Two of Burnley’s four games this season finished with under 2.5 goals. Three of Arsenal’s four matches in the Premier League this season finished with under 2.5 goals scored.

 

Arsenal could struggle at Turf Moor for the third straight season. This isn’t a good team and Arteta’s time could be coming to an end. Dyche has not had a lot of money to work with, but the transfer signings have seemed strange. Saturday’s game should finish in a draw or Arsenal win away from home. It is likely to be a close fixture between the sides.
