The Premier League has proven to be a tough task for newly promoted Burnley, with nine games played Burnley have four points and no wins. It doesnt get easier for the new boys this weekend when they travel to the Emirates to take on an Arsenal side who have not lost at home in over fourteen months. Burnleys problems are pretty oobvious, they cant find the back of the net, the team as a whole have scored five goals in nine games and that unfortunately for Burnley fans is relegation form. Ings, Sordell, Boyd, Barnes, Jutkiewich between them have one goal. That is horrendous from their so called strikeforce. Simply put if Burnley are to survive or even give themselves a chance of survival they must start scoring goals.
Last weekends away win against Sunderland was Arsenals third win of the season, that in and of itself will not be good enough if Arsenal want to make a charge for the title or even qualify for the Champions League. Arsenal may be unbeaten at home in fourteen months but the Gunners have only won one of their four home games this year with three draw as well. With a strikeforce of Wellbeck and sanchez to go with Cazorla, Walcott, Oxlade Chamberlain and Ramsay one could say Arsenal have one of the top four attacking quartet's. The only question now is will Arsenal struggle again in front of goal or will they blow Burnley away in the early minutes?

When I seen this one on the cards i expected Arsenal to be more like 1/5 for the win, the 2/7 for me represents a bit of value. It is based on Burnleys decent defence but that defence generally speaking has only been good at home. Tomorrow in the Emirates I think Arsenal's pace will expose Burnley at the back. I fully expect Arsenal to cover the -1 handicap and I think they may win this one three or four nil.
