Burnley v Arsenal – Match Preview & Predicted Score as we look for consecutive victories

Arsenal will make the trip to Turf Moor this afternoon to take on Burnley in the Premier League.

The Gunners got their first win of the season last week when beating Norwich at the Emirates Stadium 1-0, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagging our first and only league goal thus far.

Excuses could definitely have been made for our three previous PL matches however, losing a number of key players late going into the Brentford clash, and with a depleted squad against both of last season’s Champions League finalists Chelsea and Man City after that.

Burnley will go into today’s clash in search of their first win of the season, having picked up just the one point from a possible 12 thus far, drawing with Leeds at home, whilst having suffered losses to Liverpool, Everton and Brighton respectively.

We appear to have the option to name un unchanged line-up this week if we so wish, as stated in our Team News earlier on today, although we expect a couple of changes, but a smooth preparation for today’s clash should well be a boost.

I expect Arsenal to pile further misery of Burnley, who are not in the best moment, despite knowing their style of play can often cause us trouble. We are winless in our last three head-to-heads with the Clarets, and while I’m not expecting a walkover, I believe our team will be focused on the job at hand, and will come away with a 2-0 victory this time around.

What are your early predictions for today’s trip to Turf Moor?

    I’d be happy with any winning scoreline

    Agree with you Patrick 2-0. We had a pretty settled international break and have had a week to prep for this so no excuses.

    Like I said ealier, I hope the Burnley players will not bully Pepe, Saka and Odegaard to submission if they start. Three of them are too left footed and are mostly ineffective with their right legs. The Burnley players may not give them time to settle on the ball. That is why I would want Arteta to play a more direct football using our available strikers. Imagine Lokonga, Partey and Lacazette that can drop deep in midfield. With the 3 of them given the energy and grit they possess, that midfield would be very strong first and foremost and secondly, Lacazette will also play the link up role with the other 3 strikers upfront and we can also see his trademark long range shots at goal from outside the 18 yard box, while Martinelli can be given the licence to roam and play the free role. All 4 players are goal scorers and can use both feet to shoot. In this scenario, anybody can score rather than relying solely on Aubamayang to do the scoring. Pepe and Saka can come in the 2nd half when the Burnley players are beginning to tire. My 2 cents.
    4-2-1-3 Formation
    ———————-Ramsdale——————–
    Tomiyasu—White——Gabriel——Tavares
    ————-Lokonga——-Partey———–
    ——————–Lacazette——————
    Martinelli——Aubamayang——-Nketiah.

    Start players who can keep hold of the ball, fast interchange of passes to bamboozle those wrestlers, as their center backs are also quite slow.

    Always, always keep the ball down… I honestly don’t believe we’re capable of winning any aerial challenges in the middle or in their half. Play smart and don’t lose your head.
    BURNLEY 0 – 2 ARSENAL COYG!!!

    Arsenal have to beat Burnley at Turf Moor today’s afternoon in the PL to continuing progressing after they’re having gotten their first win of the season over Norwich City last weekend. And I think and believe the Gunners who the Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta will select to do the Job of beating the Clarets for Arsenal today will not disappoint but appoint Arsenal the beating unfailingly.

    Yes, did I read 0-2 to Arsenal? But I think it’ll be 0-3 to us Arsenal at fulltime.
