Burnley Prediction

At best, Burnley can move up into 14th place on the Premier League ladder, but their primary concern was to secure their top flight status which they duly achieved following recent back-to-back wins against Wolves and Cardiff City, but head into this final day of the season fixture with Arsenal having suffered back-to-back defeats.

In fact, Burnley are without a win from their last 3 matches as they took a point off Chelsea in a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in what was considered a solid point for Sean Dyche’s side, but losses to Manchester City and Everton meant that The Clarets couldn’t move any further up the table.

It’s been a very different season for Burnley who started their campaign fighting on two fronts – the Premier League and the qualifying rounds of the Europa League, but although their involvement in the European competition was curtailed before the group stages began, it took Burnley some time to recover it seemed.

Burnley finished up with a slightly uncharacteristic home record of 7-2-9 23/29 which included 10 of Burnley’s 18 home matches resulting in both teams scoring.


Burnley v Arsenal Over 2.5 goals

Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal look to have blown their chances of Champions League football via the more conventional league route and a top four finish as they trail their North London rivals, Tottenham, by 3 points and an important goal difference of 8 goals heading into this final day.

The Gunners will look for an insurance plan of claiming their existing 5th spot ahead of Manchester United who are just 1 point behind them, but the visitors also have a possible qualification route for the Champions League if they manage to beat Chelsea in the final of the competition in Baku.

Having failed to win any of their last 4 matches in the Premier League which includes 3 defeats from these last 4 matches to Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester City along with being held by lowly Brighton to a 1-1 draw at The Emirates last time out, maybe winning the Europa League is perhaps Unai Emery’s best chances of Champions League football next season!

In addition, Arsenal have managed just 2 away wins from their last 12 matches on the road which were achieved at already relegated Huddersfield Town as well as Watford, while their away record reads a disappointing 6-4-8 28/34.

Arsenal haven’t been their usual selves at the back for some time now as well, and this is evident with 14 of Arsenal’s 18 away matches resulting in both teams scoring.
