A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley were a touch unfortunate to come up against an Arsenal team inspired by the desire to give Arsene Wenger a fitting farewell in his final Emirates Stadium match as manager.
However, the Clarets had already suffered a dip in form prior to that 5-0 thrashing, losing 2-1 to Chelsea at this venue before moderate draws with Stoke and Brighton.
Sean Dyche felt that Burnley were affected by having already secured a place in next season’s Europa League when visiting London.
He said: “I think it was a mixture of us having nothing to play for, and that edge that you need to really take on a game is vital anyway, but it’s definitely vital when a team turns up like that.
“They had something to play for, which is the legend that is Arsene Wenger. Rightly so, they turned up, they gave a performance, they all looked at it, eyes were alive to give a performance.”
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth ended a run of five games without a win when Ryan Fraser’s 37th-minute strike proved enough to beat Swansea 1-0 and guarantee a fourth successive season in the top flight.
Fraser curled in from 20 yards after Andrew Surman’s short free-kick and Swansea’s wastefulness up front allowed the Cherries to post a first clean sheet in 12 matches.
“I thought in both halves we were much better,” commented Eddie Howe. “Our goalkeeper made a couple of great saves and they were key moments in the match.
“It’s been a long wait for a clean sheet, we have been working so hard behind the scenes to improve our defensive record and we got our payback. It was a real solid effort.”
A similar performance here would make 23/4 for a 1-1 stalemate worth adding to our Burnley vs Bournemouth betting tips.
