Pick: Arsenal WIN TO NIL
Odds: 6/5
Bookmaker: Bet365
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 21 January 2022)

Preview: Home supporters inside Emirates Stadium will demand a response from Arsenal to Thursday’s League Cup exit. However, will that be forthcoming against a Burnley side that should, theoretically, be much the fresher of the two teams and did emerge from last season’s corresponding fixture with a 1-0 win.

Arsenal – League Cup heartache can serve as motivation?

Thursday’s disappointing performance and result against Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final has reduced this season to a salvage mission for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal. With a second successive trophyless season confirmed, has a top-four finish become a minimum requirement for the Spaniard? With the fight for fourth looking fiercely competitive, he may have to lean on the Emirates to fulfil that particular objective.

Arsenal have accrued 22 out of a possible 30 points when playing at home this season, a tally fewer than only the top two, Liverpool and Man City. Losing only twice – to Chelsea and Man City – at the Emirates all season, winning five on the spin prior to their 2-1 defeat to the league leaders on New Year’s day. Meanwhile the Gunners haven’t actually been seen in the league since then, an absence of more than three weeks.

Key Stat: No side has conceded the opening goal in a Premier League game on fewer occasions this season than Arsenal (4). However, the Gunners do hold a 100% losing record this term when conceding the game’s first goal.

Burnley – Can’t play won’t play?

There has been so many postponed fixtures since Burnley last completed a league game that some of us were fearing we may never see them turn out in the Premier League ever again. It wasn’t that long ago Sean Dyche suggested everyone should merely get on with it and play football, which seems ironic now. Famous last words perhaps, as his team are now left with an unprecedented fixture list.

Burnley resume in 20th, only three points from safety and with as many as four games in hand on the sides above them. For a team which has won one league game all season, all those games in hand may not be all that advantageous. The Clarets are without a win in eight in all competitions (D4 L3), losing each of their last three, and seeking to avoid a fourth consecutive away league defeat on Sunday.

Key Stat: Along with Newcastle, Burnley are still without an away league win in 2021-22. They have conceded at least one goal in 9 of 10 away league games this season, the goalless draw at Wolves at the beginning of December the exception.

Arsenal Vs Burnley Betting Advice

If Arsenal could have hand picked a fixture with which to bounce back following Thursday’s demoralising outcome in the EFL Cup, a home encounter with Burnley – who haven’t played a competitive fixture in more than two weeks – would probably be it. The Gunners have only lost one of the pair’s last 18 league meetings, winning twelve and drawing five, although that was at the Emirates last season.


Arsenal Vs Burnley – Key Facts:

  • Last season’s surprise 1-0 victory in this fixture means Burnley are targeting successive away league wins over Arsenal for only the third time, last doing so in 1960.
  • Arsenal have only dropped eight points at home all season though (W7 D1 L2), winning five on the spin at the Emirates – four to nil – prior to a 2-1 loss to Man City last time out.
  • Bukayo Saka has scored in each of his previous three league appearances for Arsenal and is looking to become the youngest player in Premier League history to score or assist in six consecutive league games.


Any repeat would seem unlikely. Arsenal boast a formidable home record this season, winning seven of ten (D1 L2), while only Newcastle have earned less points away from home than the four of Burnley (D4 L6). The Gunners will be light in midfield for Sunday but are facing a Burnley side missing last season’s top scorer, Chris Wood. Five of seven Arsenal home wins this season were to nil and I can foresee another.
