Burnley vs Arsenal: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds

Turf Moor, Burnley
Arsenal look to finish their domestic campaign on a high as they travel to Turf Moor to take on Sean Dyche’s Burnley.
At one stage of the season it was looking like Sean Dyche would leave Burnley – and that the Clarets would be one of the three clubs dropping down to the Championship. An eight game unbeaten run at the turn of the year erased those thoughts and now Burnley can concentrate on next season in the top flight once again.
Arsenal can still mathematically qualify for next season’s Champions League – but it will take a Tottenham Hotspur defeat and a huge goal difference swing for that to happen. The draw at home to Brighton has condemned the Gunners to the Europa League once again, unless they can go on to win this season’s competition.
Burnley have not had the best end of season run, losing three of their last four and only picking up a point in the process. But they have faced some sides in very good form so little can be read into that. Dyche will be confident that his side could end the season on a high as Arsenal do not travel well – even if the bookies see the visitors as favourites for this one.
The sports betting sites still believe in Arsenal – but there doesn’t seem to be much of that kind of confidence in the club itself. Whether the players now have their minds set on the Europa League or not, there have been some disjointed performances in the last few weeks. Burnley could well end up taking three points here in a 2-0 victory.
Burnley to win
Arsenal should be doing everything they can to win this but the spark hasn’t been there on a regular basis this season.
Total goals under 2.5
Although Arsenal possess two very good strikers the team as a whole do not perform away from home. There may not be many goals at Turf Moor.

Head to Head
Arsenal have enjoyed playing Burnley in the last few years – and it is 10 years since the Gunners even dropped a point in this fixture.
- Burnley have not scored a single goal in their last two matches – something that hadn’t happened since the end of October.
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can still pick up the Golden Boot if he has a particularly prolific game against Burnley. The Gabon striker currently has two fewer than top goal scorer Mohamed Salah.
- This is the last game of a very long season for Barnsley. While other Premier League clubs were only just thinking of the current campaign the Clarets were involved in Europa League action at the end of July last year.
- Although they currently have 20 fewer goals than Manchester City, Arsenal are the third highest scorers in the Premier League.
