Arsenal vs Burnley Prediction & Match Preview

Arsenal vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are in deep trouble at the moment. The once-proud club is currently placed 15th in the table, just two spots above the relegation cut-off, and have a total of just four wins all through this campaign.

Day by day, criticism is rising against its players as well as coaching staff. Something needs to be done soon, or come January, Mikel Arteta would get the axe. The situation is that dire at the Emirates Stadium.

The first objective on their agenda is getting a huge win, whoever the opponent might be. And the Clarets are a great candidate to do just that.

Sean Dyche’s men are placed 18th in the table, and have a total of one win to their name all through this campaign. They have also scored the least number of goals of all the squads in the competition, and have been a total disaster on the road lately.

To pile on even more, they also have a terrible record against this rival in h2h clashes.

Likely, expect a determined Arsenal to post a win this Sunday.

Arsenal vs Burnley: Prediction

The Gunners lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Tottenham. In the meantime, the Clarets were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Everton.

Going on, Arteta’s men were unbeaten in six of their previous nine overall matches, and they had won 11 of their preceding 14 appearances at home. They had also scored two or more goals in 14 of their past 18 home fixtures.

Meanwhile, their counterparts were winless in 13 of their preceding 15 games, and they have a single win on the road this whole season, which had come against a team from the lower divisions.

Moreover, the Gunners have a 100% unbeaten record in PL matches over the past two decades against this opponent, and at this venue, they have a 100% winning record in h2h meetings. They have also scored two or more goals in every single appearance at home against Dyche’s men in the 21st century.

Taking these stats into account, expect an Arsenal win this Sunday at the Emirates.
