Burnley v Arsenal Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
May 07, 2019
Turf Moor - Premier League
Arsenal head to Burnley for their final game of the season, with their top four dream in tatters after a poor run of recent Premier League form.
Arsenal beat Burnley 3-1 at home earlier this season, with two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and one for Alex Iwobi.
The Gunners have won their last nine Premier League games against Sean Dyche's side.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has no fresh injury update ahead of the trip to Turf Moor, with Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Denis Suarez all still sidelined.
Burnley could recall defender Phil Bardsley after he returned to training following an injury, but Aaron Lennon, Robbie Brady and Steven Defour are all out of action for the Clarets.
Burnley v Arsenal Preview and Predictions
Arsenal are technically out of the race for the top four, but they would need a win in Lancashire, Tottenham to lose at home to Everton, and an eight goal swing in their favour on the last day. Emery's focus will now be on the Europa League, and success in the final would see them return to the Champions League, and prevent their season from ending in failure.
Burnley secured their Premier League status weeks ago, and Dyche's side have promptly taken their foot right off the gas in the final few games of the campaign, with back to back defeats. Dyche will want to give the fans a lift in the final game of the season, and with Arsenal's league season already over, Emery may take the opportunity to rest players for games to come.
With virtually nothing left to play for in both camps, and Arsenal's mind likely to be elsewhere, this game should even itself out - and a draw comes in at a price of 9/4.
Neither side have been in great goal scoring form in recent Premier League games, with three goals each in their last three games, and that could continue this weekend - and an under 2.5 total goals scored bet is at 11/8.
A 1-1 draw at 7/1
Both sides look pretty much ready for the league season to end - with Arsenal deflated after their draw at home to Brighton, which ended their top four push last weekend. The Clarets are never an easy option at home and Dyche will not want to end 2018-19 with a loss at home.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime at 11/10
The Gabonese international reached the 20 goal Premier League mark last weekend, in his first full season in English football and he has three goals in his last four league games. He is also still in the running for the Premier League Golden Boot, with only Mo Salah (22) scoring more this season.
