Arsenal vs Burnley Match Preview
Arsenal continue to be a work in progress under Unai Emery, but they are fancied to beat Burnley more convincingly at home than in their narrow season-opening win at Newcastle.
This looks like being a second campaign of transition for the Gunners from Arsene Wenger’s era and, following a busier than expected summer of transfer activity regarding new arrivals at the club, there is still some time to elapse before Emery can definitively call it ‘his’ team.
There were four new signings on the bench at Newcastle, while left-back recruit Kieran Tierney is a couple of months away from playing after injury. Alexandre Lacazette was an unused substitute on Tyneside, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were omitted due to ongoing personal issues and youngsters Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson were blooded from the start.
Essentially, it is nigh impossible to predict who Emery will pick from one game to the next, but he got Arsenal to the Europa League Final last term and optimism ought to be high of a top-four finish this time around.
Burnley, meanwhile, began with a cracking 3-0 home success against Southampton with Ashley Barnes scoring a double and a bright start is exactly what they needed in their quest to stay away from this season’s relegation battle.
However, the Clarets’ record away to Arsenal is poor and after losing both of last season’s meetings 3-1, something similar could be on the cards for Sean Dyche’s side here.
