Burnley vs Arsenal
English Premier League
Date: Saturday 18th September 2021
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
It’s 18th vs 16th and this game poses a tough one for both teams even though Arsenal has the better squad and will be the favourites to win.
Burnley have not won so far in this new campaign and from their first 4 games have lost 3 of them. The clubs only point so far has come against Leeds when they drew 1-1 at home. Sean Dyche’s team last game ended in a 3-1 defeat at Everton though they had taken the lead in that game.
At the Emirates last weekend there was a sigh of relief as Arsenal finally won their first game of the season to take them from the bottom of the Premier League to 16th. But the victory over the poor Norwich City was not convincing and the Gunners only won 1-0.
It did end a 3 game losing streak though and manager Mikel Arteta will be hoping that has given his side some much needed confidence coming into this weekend.

Burnley vs Arsenal Prediction
Sean Dyche’s team are getting into a habit of starting Premier League seasons slowly and maybe one season this can come back to haunt them.
Burnley have played decent enough football but results have been poor but the club will try and approach this game with some hope because pressure remains on Arsenal to perform.
As for Arsenal they were unable to beat Burnley at all last season but we think they can come through this one and get a few goals along the way. The key for the away side is to start very quick and with purpose, Burnley are there for the taking and the odds on a Arsenal win are very good
