Burnley vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 2 February 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).

Arsenal are gradually getting back to fine form under new boss Mikel Arteta, coupled with their fantastic record against Sean Dyche’s Burnley side as well, so we will be expecting the Gunners to put in a decent performance when they travel to Lancashire on Sunday.

However, Burnley themselves have been on a great spell against top-tier teams, and coupled with their home advantage, a clean sheet looks unlikely for the Gunners on the day.

This will surely set up for a great game for both set of fans and especially the neutrals going into the fixture, and if you are looking to put your money to good use, then you can try online casino games for real money for best results.

Burnley vs Arsenal Match Preview

Last week, Burnley took a short trip to Old Trafford and somehow managed to stun the Red Devils with a 0-2 victory, capping up a fantastic away game day and a clean sheet.

It was their second win in a row against a top Premier League side, with the previous one coming at home against Leicester City. When they stole a 2-1 victory against the Foxes.

Arsenal on the other hand , secured an inspiring 2-2 draw on the road against Chelsea. The Gunners were reduced to ten men early in the first half and conceded a penalty in the process. On top of that, they came from behind a second time and still manage to draw level 2-2 with three minutes left on the clock.

The Gunners commendable performance under pressure will surely act as a boost for the team going into the clash against Burnley.

Going into this game, this season, only times have Burnley failed to score in front of their home crowd, and the three games were against League leaders Liverpool (with easily the best defense in the country), Manchester United, and Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have just three clean sheets from their previous twenty-three games, and just four from their former twenty-five trips on the road.

Burnley vs Arsenal Prediction

As things stand this Sunday, Arsenal are deemed to have the upper hand. They are one of the elite teams in England, and are being backed by major pundits and bookmakers such as best online sports betting to get something out of the game as they begin to slowly get back to their groove under new head coach Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal have also won the previous eleven head to head clashes on the trot, and scored two or more times in nine of the previous thirteen such meetings. Also, the last time the Gunners lost against Burnley was back in 2008.

Taking all these facts into account, we can come to a conclusion that Arsenal are poised to pick up all three points this Sunday.

However, it is worthy to note that Burnley have just recorded back-to-back wins against Manchester United, and Leicester and will have a huge confidence going into this clash. They also have the advantage of playing at home.
