Arsenal vs Burnley: prediction for the English Premier League match
Arsenal welcome Burnley to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday, January 23. What to expect from this match? Our answer is in the prediction below.
This is Arsenal's first season without European football in many years. At first, the Gunners didn't look convincing at all, but as the season went on, the Londoners started delivering successful results and climbed onto the 6th line in the Premier League standings.
Arsenal have earned 35 points from 20 games, 2 points less than the 4th West Ham. Mikel Arteta's charges won 11 matches and drew twice. After a crushing victory over Norwich (5:0), the Gunners lost to Manchester City (1:2). They also lost to Liverpool in the second leg of the League Cup semi-final match (0:2).
The hosts will be without Partey, Elneny, and Pepe, who are on international duty. Xhaka is suspended. Aubameyang, Kolasinac, Soares, Saka, Chamber, Tomiyasu, and Smith Rowe have also been ruled out.
Burnley finished in 17th place in the table last season, and hoped to improve their result this year. However, their 2021-2022 Premier League campaign has been an absolute disaster.
Sean Dyche's men recorded only one victory in 17 games and eight of their matches ended in draws. The Clarets sit bottom of the log with just 11 points. However, they have played only 17 games, which is fewer than any other team in the Premier League. In the last five rounds of games, Burnley earned two points - they drew with Wolverhampton (0:0) and West Ham (0:0).
The visitors will be playing without Guðmundsson, Barnes, and Cornet.
This bet played in 3 of the last 5 games of the visitors.
In 2 of the last 4 games of Arsenal, goals were scored in both halves.
The visitors lost 4 of the last 5 games.
Arsenal need three points to get back into the top-4, and we think they will be successful. The hosts are a better team and should get a landlside victory in the upcoming fixture.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to Arsenal
We expect both sides to get several chances to score. In the last four head-to-head games, the teams scored no more than two goals, but we believe that today they will be able to overcome the total.
Second bet - total over 2.5 goals
