Arsenal vs Burnley: Everything you need to know
Form, favourites and prior encounters
Arsenal win 1/5 – Burnley win 12/1
Safe to say, the bookies are backing Arsenal for this one and we’re strongly inclined to agree with them. Whilst Burnley are on a decent run of three wins in their last four league outings (four in six across all competitions), they’re rock bottom of the Premier League’s away table, picking up just one point and scoring only three goals on the road this season. The Gunners, in contrast, are fifth in the home table, losing just once at the Emirates Stadium his term, and have seemingly recovered from that 2-1 defeat to Manchester City, picking up ten points from a possible twelve since.
Likewise, prior encounters only point to an Arsenal win. The Gunners have lost to Burnley just once since 1974, in 2008, and their last six meetings have seen five wins for the north London side, producing an aggregate scoreline of 11-3. Courtesy of Whoscored.
