Kick-off: 1500, 12/05/2019
Stadium: Turf Moor
Burnley have lost nine straight head-to-head encounters with Arsenal but are rated a value bet to end that hoodoo at Turf Moor on Sunday.
The Gunners have lost three of their last four Premier League away games, are all but out of the race for a top-four finish and will be tired from Thursday’s Europa League trip to Valencia.
All that makes 12/5 for the Clarets to prevail look a tempting option for our opening Burnley vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley paid the price for a slow start when going down 2-0 at Everton last time out, with both goals coming in the first 20 minutes.
However, they had previously battled hard when only beaten 1-0 by Manchester City and have enjoyed a strong second half of the season.
In fact, only City, Liverpool and Manchester United have picked up more points than the Clarets since Boxing Day.
Sean Dyche’s side recently rattled off a hat-trick of victories and drew 2-2 at Chelsea to secure their place in the top flight next term.
“They climbed a mountain in the second half of the season,” said Dyche. “To get the points we’ve got is a fantastic achievement.”
The Clarets netted in 13 straight home games before City kept a clean sheet at Turf Moor, with Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood in fine form up front.
Looking at the Burnley vs Arsenal odds, we reckon 27/20 for the hosts to strike more than once here is a decent price.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Gudmundsson, Brady, Westwood, Barnes, Wood.
Dyche will make a late call on James Tarkowski, who has missed a few days of training due to the birth of his daughter.
Phil Bardsley (gashed leg) is available again and could return but Aaron Lennon is unlikely to be risked as he recovers from knee surgery.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s domestic campaign has fizzled out tamely and they would need a minor miracle to qualify for the Champions League by finishing in the leading quartet.
The Gunners suffered three successive Premier League defeats last month and were then held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton on home turf, despite going ahead early on via a contentious Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty.
That result left them three points adrift of fourth-placed neighbours Spurs – and with an inferior goal difference of eight.
“I think we worked and tried but didn’t get the result for taking chances next week,” said Unai Emery. “Now our way is to be strong in our focus for Thursday.”
The Gunners have already lost eight times on the road in this competition and 11/1 for them to go down 2-1 at Turf Moor is added to our Burnley vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Sokratis, Lichtsteiner, Monreal, Mustafi, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Torreira, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Arsenal have no fresh injury concerns but, after securing their place in the Europa League final on Thursday night, Emery may shuffle his pack a little at Turf Moor.
Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) will not play for the club again, while Danny Welbeck (ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) are also out.
Everton 2-0 BURNLEY
Valencia 2-4 ARSENAL – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (3), Alexandre Lacazette
Head-to-head: Arsenal 3-1 Burnley, Arsenal 5-0 Burnley, Burnley 0-1 Arsenal, Arsenal 2-1 Burnley, Burnley 0-1 Arsenal
