Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal build on Newcastle result?

Saturday lunchtime’s hosts, Arsenal, recorded back-to-back wins away from home either side of last season and this, when they registered a 1-0 win away at Newcastle United at St James’ Park in last week’s season opener in the Premier League.

Arsenal were helped somewhat by a tentative looking Newcastle outfit under the new management of Steve Bruce, but The Gunners did enough to grab all three points to start their season off on a winning note, especially as it was on the road.

The hosts ended last season with a disappointing away record of 7-4-8 31/35 which was in stark contrast to the solid home record that they posted by the end of the last campaign which ended on 14-3-2 42/16.

In their last 18 home matches of last season, Arsenal lost just 1 of these which was a 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace, but it was Arsenal’s margins of victory on home turf at their Emirates Stadium that was particularly impressive – 13 of Arsenal’s 14 home wins saw the The Gunners win by a 2-goal margin or greater.

In addition, Arsenal have won all of the previous 10 meetings against Burnley (home and away).

Burnley Prediction – Can Burnley continue momentum?

The visitors to the nation’s capital, Burnley, continued their impressive early season momentum last weekend when they registered a convincing 3-0 home win over Southampton in a clash that may have unfairly been tagged as an early relegation battle.

This in part may have been due to Burnley’s poor finish to the last campaign in the Premier League which saw The Clarets lose 3 of their last 4 matches of last season with defeats to Manchester City, Everton and today’s opponents, Arsenal, the latter being a heavy 3-1 loss at Turf Moor.

However, without the distractions of the Europa league qualifying rounds to contend with this time around, Sean Dyche’s men have enjoyed a successful and more structured pre-season period which ended up with Burnley winning 5 of their 7 warm-up matches.

But with just 4 away wins from their last 21 matches on their travels in the Premier League, manager, Sean Dyche, knows there’s still plenty of work to do to improve upon Burnley’s results on the road.

Burnley ended last season with an away record of 4-5-10 21/26 and managed just 1 win out of their last 5 away matches. The visitors will be hoping the return of forward, Rodriguez, can link up effectively with Barnes, Wood and Vydra this term.


Key-Facts – Arsenal v Burnley

  • 13 of Arsenal’s 14 home wins saw the The Gunners win by a 2-goal margin
  • Arsenal have won all of the previous 10 meetings against Burnley
  • Burnley have won just 4 of their last 21 away matches in the Premier League


Betting Tips Verdict

Arsenal on home turf are a tough prospect for any visiting team and the hosts should grab the points here and also cover the asian handicap too.
