Team news, injuries and suspensions
Burnley has had a very tough start to the news season. In the four games that they have played, The Clarets lost three games and drew one. Burnley are still winless in the new season.
Sean Dyche’s men are coming into this game after a loss to Everton at Goodison Park. They lost by three goals to nil despite bagging an early lead. The Arsenal game will pose a huge opportunity for the Clarets to start fresh.
Dale Stephens, Kevin Long and Connor Roberts are all not unfit for the fixture. However, Nathan Collins could be available in case he is match fit in time. But there is a high chance that Burnley might play an unchanged side from the Everton game.
The Gunners are coming into this fixture with a vital win against Norwich City last week. However, the performance was not very impressive and convincing but a win is still a win. Arsenal are currently sitting at the sixteenth position in the table. Mikel Arteta’s men will be hoping to fork out a win at the Turf Moor.
Granit Xhaka will not be available for the fixture since he is still under suspension. However, Arsenal have also confirmed the absence of Rob Holding and Mohammed Elneny due to injury.
Thomas Partey is still not 100% match fit and it will be Mikel Arteta’s decision to start him or not. Given the Tottenham Hotspur game nearly a week away, it will be a very tough decision to make for Arteta. However, it is also to be seen whether Mikel Arteta starts Aaron Ramsdale again.
Burnley vs Arsenal: Head to Head Record
Arsenal have an upper hand against Burnley but the last five matches tell a different story. The Gunners have managed two wins, two draws and one loss in the last five fixtures against the Clarets.
Burnley vs Arsenal: Predicted line-up
Burnley: Pope; Roberts, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Wood, Barnes.
Arsenal: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Sambi, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang.
Burnley vs Arsenal: Players to watch out
Chris Wood will play a vital role for the Clarets. Though he has not been very good this season, the forward will still test the resolve of Arsenal’s defence. Burnley will be looking to provide long balls to attack Arsenal. Chris Wood will play a crucial role in such a setup. The Burnley player will also make Arsenal’s defence uncomfortable on set-pieces.
Thomas Partey will be the key player for Arsenal. He was impressive in the previous game right from the moment he came on. It was Partey that opened up Arsenal’s attack. He will be critical for Arsenal’s attack in this game as well. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also look to make sure that the chances created by Arsenal do not go wasted.
The12th Man Prediction
Both the teams lack creativity in their respective sides. And as a result of that, it would not be a goal-fest at Turf Moor on Saturday. But Arsenal are likely to take the three points with a close victory by 2-1.
