Form Guide – Arsenal facing another relegation clash at Burnley

Considering that Brentford were one of the favourites to be relegated, Arsenal really should have beaten them if we had had a full team available, and then the fixture list was very unfavourable with us coming up against the two Champions League Finalists.

After facing Chelsea and Man City, it is only fair that we were given two more easy fixtures against relegation candidates in Norwich and Burnley.

We now have most of our team back in action, and we got past Norwich (albeit narrowly!) and now we are coming up against Burnley who are one of the few teams that have less points than us! The Clarets have already been beaten by Brighton, Liverpool and Everton, and gained their single point against Leeds United, who are also without a win in their first 4 games.

On paper, with a full squad of fit players we should be easy winners, but I can’t help thinking about our two fixtures against them last season. We only managed a 1-1 draw up at Turf Moor, and back at the Emirates we had Granit Xhaka sent off, and the only goal of the game was scored by Aubameyang in our own net to leave us with nothing.

The season before we only scraped a 0-0 draw in this fixture as well, so I am feeling it hard to be high in confidence of an easy Arsenal victory….

We could certainly do with a convincing performance with the North London Derby looming….

  1. Believe me this will be a tough game Burnley will be launching that ball into the penalty area so the defence will have to be strong

  2. Burnly lost away to Everton on Monday. It will be difficult to beat them at home. But because we have our full squard we should and can win even though it may be a narrow win. Arsenal and Arteta needs this kind of game to boost confidence. Because of Bunly tall CF, I think Arsenal should employ a
    3-4-2-1 formation against them. Liverpool boss J. Klopp said of their last game against Bunly “it’s like playing rugby” Bunly are known to be always physical in their approach therefore Arsenal needs to be ready physically and and be match Fit.

  3. Another win is attainable, i doubt we will make it as easy as we should though. Lets get away from Relegation zone!

  4. At this point I’m not too bothered if we lose.

    I just want us to actually play well and for the players to look like they have a clue about what’s going on. Results can be built on that…

  5. A good test for us, we need to see if we are really improving and MA has an impact on the team because the last game was something else.

  6. Birnley are a very physical team and Arsenal must be ready for that. Having said that, I feel MA should go in with a 3 man defence to counter the powerful forwards and hit Birnley with the pace of Auba, Saka and Pepe. Arsenal should win but it will be difficult. A win will be a good launching pad for the game against the Spuds next weekend.
