Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal will look to bounce back after their 22-match unbeaten run came to an end at the weekend as struggling Burnley come to the Emirates.
It was inevitable that Arsenal’s marvellous 22-game unbeaten run in all competitions would come to an end, and there is almost a sense of relief that it is now over, and the club can get back to reality.
However, that reality is still something that can harbour lofty ambitions and as Premier League strugglers Burnley come to town, the Gunners can smell blood. That’s especially considering the North Londoners have won the last eight meetings against Burnley in all competitions and have not lost to the Clarets in the league since 1974.
This season has not gone to plan for Sean Dyche’s men as they find themselves in the relegation zone having picked up just three Premier League wins all season and just one victory on the road.
The signs are not looking good for Burnley and that makes an Arsenal win and easy prediction to make.
However, the score not so, as the Gunners have sometimes ridden their luck even at the Emirates this season but having conceded just three goals in their last five games in all competitions at home makes a shut out a certainty and a solid (if unspectacular) 2-0 win in favour of the home side the way to go in this one.
- Arsenal to keep a clean sheet
An easy tip this one and certainly one that the best betting sites will be see plenty of action on.
That is because Arsenal have only conceded once in their last three matches with Burnley and the Clarets have netted just six times on the road this season.
- Under 2.5 goals and a clean sheet in the game
Only once in Arsenal’s last seven home games in all competitions have the Gunners netted more than two goals game.

Head to Head
Rewind back to the 6th May 2018 and Burnley’s last trip to the Emirates. It was one to forget for Sean Dyche as he saw his side thumped 5-0 by the Gunners in Arsene Wenger’s last home game in charge.
It does not get much better for Burnley as Arsenal are unbeaten against the Clarets in their last 10 meetings, having won nine of those.
Burnley did beat Arsenal in 2008 but that was at Turf Moor in the 5th round of the League Cup with the Clarets winless in the league over Arsenal since September 1974.
- Only Cardiff City (5) have scored fewer away goals in the Premier League this season than Burnley’s six.
- Burnley have had to make 72 saves this season which is more than anyone else in the League.
- Arsenal are currently on an eight-game unbeaten stretch at home in the Premier League.
- Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the joint top scorer in the league this season with 10 goals.
- Burnley has made more clearance off the line this season than anyone else (6).
