Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Burnley welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to build on their wins last weekend.

Sean Dyche’s men come into this match on the back of a 2-0 win against high-flying Watford last weekend.

Goals from Jeff Hendrick (38) and Michael Keane (50) gave the Clarets their second win of the season.

Watford were poor all game, with Burnley limiting them to just 2 shots on target, despite Watford enjoying the higher percentage of the ball.

It was another strong home display from Burnley, with the Clarets winning 2 of their opening 3 games at fortress Turf Moor.

Back In Form

That win will have delighted Sean Dyche, with his side enduring two defeats in three matches prior to that game.

They have faced some strong sides already in the form of Leicester, and Liverpool, who limited them a loss and a win respectively.

Burnley’s best result of the season was the 2-0 win against Liverpool, with Burnley the only side to beat the high-flying Reds this season.

Their overall record is mixed this season, with two wins, one draw and three defeats but Burnley knew this season would be tough.

Visitors Favourites

Sean Dyche’s side are 14th in the Premier League, level on points with Leicester and Hull City.

They will go above West Brom into 9th with a win, and maintain their excellent home record in the process.

Their recent record against Arsenal is appalling, they have lost the last four meetings against the Gunners.


Arsenal Looking Great

Arsenal travel to Turf Moor on the back of a 3-0 win in the Premier League against Chelsea.

Goals from Alexis Sánchez (11), Theo Walcott (14) and Mesut Özil (40) completed an emphatic first half for Arsenal.

It ends Arsenal’s recent poor run against Chelsea, with the Blues something of a bogey team for the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger will be delighted with his side’s performance, it is a huge statement of intent to beat Chelsea with such ease.

Antonio Conte’s side were never in the game, their best effort of the night fell to Michy Batschuayi late in the second half.

European Boost

Arsene Wenger has enjoyed an excellent season so far, with the defeat against Liverpool the only defeat so far.

They have progressed on the European front as well, with a comprehensive 2-0 win against Basle in midweek at the Emirates.

Goals from Theo Walcott (7, 26) took his tally to three inside a week and Alexis Sanchez wasted a hatful of chances.

Gunners Favourites

Arsenal come into this match as favourites, they will be looking to make it five successive wins.

This will be a tough fixture for Arsene Wenger’s side, with Burnley relishing the underdog tag, they have also proved to be excellent at home.

Arsenal will be looking to maintain their overall record against Burnley, in 84 matches they have won 38, lost 28 and drawn 18.


Both teams are 10/11 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Burnley are Sam Vokes at 10/1, with Jeff Hendrick, Patrick Bamford and Ashley Barnes at 12/1. For Arsenal, Alexis Sanchez is at 7/2 with Lucas Perez at 9/2.

The last time that these two sides met Arsenal won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 7/1.
