Bet: Under 2.5 goals (2.02 Unibet)
Burnley has a goal difference of 12-9 in twelve Premier League matches and a goal difference of 5-2 in six home games. They are very solid at the back.
Arsenal’s offense is obviously very strong, but it has misfired plenty of times this season, and Arsenal actually scored just 7 goals in the 6 away games they played so far in the BPL. The Gunners might have a tough time against this in form, very well organized Burnley side.
Odds for under 2.5 goals are high and you can even get the under 3 (Asian) goals at a very competitive price if you like safety first, like I usually do.
I think Burnley has what it takes to frustrate a good but unconvincing Arsenal side here, and I see no reason to expect a goal-fest. Look for a clash in which the hosts will defend effectively, while Arsenal will pass the ball around trying to break them down.
My tip for Burnley – Arsenal is under 2.5 goals to be scored. Burnley failing to score would go a long way in helping this bet, and that could very well happen given their offensive futility and the fact that Arsenal finally has their regular back three healthy.
Last season Arsenal won a borefest at this ground with the winning 1-0 goal scored in injury time,
