Arsenal vs Burnley Prediction and Match Preview

Saturday, August 17 – 07:30 EST – Emirates Stadium

Last weekend, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s coolly-taken finish earned the Gunners a 1-0 victory at St James’ Park. Unai Emery’s men will be looking to come out of this one with another 3 points in front of their home crowd. There is no word yet on whether Mesut Ozil or Sead Kolasinac will be available after the pair were stood down for Arsenal’s opener due to ongoing “security concerns”. The two were victims of an attempted car-jacking in north London. David Luiz will be pushing for his Arsenal debut. Arsenal have never lost against Burnley, winning 9 of their 10 matchups. Arsenal finished last season 10 places ahead of Burnley who finished in 15th.

Despite finishing last season in 15th place, Sean Dyche’s Burnley are coming off a very impressive performance last week. They had an excellent showing in their opening match which earned them a 3-0 victory against Southampton. Expect them to come into this game with tons of confidence. Dyche will unlikely change the lineup which overpowered Southampton last week. Arsenal are likely to collect the three points, but anything less than a strong performance will leave the door open for Dyche’s men. If the home team can manage to score an early goal, Burnley will have no choice but to open up and try their luck. We believe that Arsenal will manage to put at least 2 goals passed Burnley.
