Arsenal News and Form – Will Arsenal gain winning momentum?

It was a 1-0 win that Arsenal got for themselves last weekend. They visited Newcastle and took their win. The positives, while the performance wasn’t great, was a clean sheet and three points. You can’t ask for much more than that.

Considering it’s so early in the season, it was a decent effort. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang got their goal at St James’ Park to open his account for the season. He is the 11/4 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 14th, 2019 at 6:12 p.m.) in this.

So here comes their opening test on home soil. Last season at the Emirates they picked up a W14 D3 L2 record on home soil in the top flight. Arsenal did manage to average over two goals per game at home in the Premier League, even though less than half of the league games at the Emirates made it over 2.5 goals.

Out of the fourteen wins in the league that they earned at the Emirates, twelve of them were by a margin of at least two goals. Last season Arsenal lost their opening home game against Man City. They responded from that well though as they won the next four on the bounce at the Emirates.

Burnley News and Form – Can Clarets raid North London?

Burnley had a fantastic start to the new season. They rolled out at Turf Moor and hammered Southampton 3-0. Burnley got all of their goals after the halftime break with Ashley Barnes getting a brace for himself. So a tremendous start for Sean Dyche’s team.

Now, however, will come to a sterner test. Just four times last season Burnley managed to win on their top-flight travels (D5 L10). They did not win a single game away against a top ten side. The Clarets averaged just over a goal per game away from home in the last campaign, but they shipped at an average of almost two per game.

In their final five away games of the last season, Burnley took just a W1 D1 L3 record. Burnley earned a clean sheet in a total of just 16% of away games. They will know, because of Arsenal’s powerful front line, that they are going to need a big defensive shift. Eight of Burnley’s ten away defeats in the league last season happened by a margin of at least two goals.

Arsenal v Burnley Predictions

Arsenal to win: you have to think that Arsenal are likely to be on the front foot a bit more than they were last weekend, and by the same token you would imagine Burnley to be a bit more defensive-minded away from home. Arsenal do have some quality in attack and that should be enough to get them a good home victory.
