Arsenal v Burnley Tips & Predictions
17th August 2019 – 12:30
Match Preview & Team News
Arsenal managed to edge past Newcastle United thanks to a cool finish from striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who broke the deadlock just before the hour-mark to make the difference in favour of Unai Emery’s squad on the opening Matchday at St. James’ Park. The Gunners will be looking to preserve the perfect record after two rounds on Saturday afternoon when they welcome Burnley in the first fixture of the second round at Emirates.
Unai Emery surprisingly kept a lot in reserve at St. James’ Park leaving the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Lucas Torreira. David Luiz, Nicolas Pepe, and Dani Ceballos on the bench. Youngster Reiss Nelson took the most of the opportunity to make the starting line-up last weekend and a strong display against the Magpies may well earn him another start here against Clarets.
The visitors will also come into the match high on confidence following a 3-0 drubbing of Southampton seven days ago. Ashley Barnes was the team’s hero as his brace inspired the victory over the Saints. Will Sean Dyche pair him with Chris Wood and use the same formation here against much stronger opposition?
Burnley won four and drew one of past five games as they backed up the strong pre-season form in the first official match of the campaign. The team scored at least two goals in each of the last five matches in the process. Arsenal claimed two separate 3-1 wins against Clarets in the previous term of the Premier League and this is exactly the scenario we are expecting to see on Saturday when these two likes come across each other for the 91st time in history.
