The Emirates Stadium will host a match between Arsenal vs Burnley. The game is scheduled for November 11, 2023.
Burnley's Premier League campaign has been marred by a lackluster performance, managing just one victory in their 11 matches. Their recent five consecutive losses have certainly taken a toll on their confidence. In contrast, Arsenal, who had been having a strong season, faced their first defeat of the campaign in an unexpected 1-0 loss to Newcastle. Arteta expressed his strong disapproval of a controversial goal in a fiery post-match press conference.
In the English Premier League, Arsenal is currently ranked fourth, and Burnley is ranked nineteenth, just one spot above the bottom. One of the biggest teams in the English Premier League, Arsenal, has seen criticism recently; however they showed their caliber in the last season, finishing second in the EPL behind Manchester City.
In contrast, Burnley, managed by Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany, won the Championship but was unable to carry over its success into the English Premier League.
The home team, Arsenal, has scored 2.13 goals per match on average in this season.
The betting tip is...
Arsenal to score 2.5+ goals
The English wonder kid Bukayo Saka has had a great impact on the offensive part of Arsenal with a staggering 11 goal contributions. He scored five and assisted six, with 16.7% of the total shots on target.
Martin Odegaard and Eddie Nketiah have shown up to help him when needed. Eddie has also performed well this season, contributing 5 goals and 1 assist to his goal total of 6. Arsenal's average goal is 2.13, and their goal against is 0.8, which should be feared by their opponents.
New signings like David Raya and Declan Rice have proven that they were worth the money. David Raya has only allowed 7 goals while saving 16, for a saves-per-goal ratio of 2.3. Declan Rice provided Mikel Arteta's team with midfield stability and defensive power.
Gabriel Jesus is still injured and is likely to miss this match as well.
Predicted Lineup: David Raya, Gabriel, William Saliba, Ben White, Tomiyasu, Declan Rice, Jorginho, Kai Havertz, Gabriel Martinelli Eddie Nketiah, Bukayo Saka
Last season, Burnley were the best team in the Championship. In a nutshell, they dominated it, but they are off to an unimpressive start in the Premier League. Vincent Kompany's mastermind is trailing.
This season, their best player is Lyle Foter, who has three goals and two assists, and Ahmed Zaroury, who has three assists. Their custodian, James Trafford, has made some incredible saves but has also given up many goals.
This season, he saved 38 shots but allowed 25 goals, lowering his saves-per-goal ratio to 1.5 saves/goal. Burnley must sort out their strategies and recover as soon as possible, or they will find themselves back in the relegation zone.
Burnely will field their strongest XI against Gunners.
Predicted Lineup: James Trafford, Dara O’Shea, Jordan Beyer, Chris Taylor, Vitinho, Josh Brownhill, Sander Berge, Johan Gudmundsson, Aaron Ramsey, Lyle Foster, Zeki Amdouni
Arsenal has historically and currently dominated the fixture between these two English Premier League teams. Arsenal has a strong squad with depth, which gives them an advantage over Burnley. Mikel Arteta, their manager, is also backed and given financial support to sign players like Declan Rice for a record transfer fee.
On the other hand, Burnley has a team that is less competitive when compared to a team like Arsenal, but they still have good players like Lyle Foster and Ahmed Zroury who can bring Burnley back to a stable base and save them from relegation. We expect Arsenal to breeze past Burnley in this one.
