Burnley v Arsenal betting tips: Gunners going for back-to-back wins

| 13.09.2021

Burnley v Arsenal betting tips and odds

The pressure eased on Mikel Arteta last weekend when Arsenal bagged their first points of the season in a 1-0 victory over Norwich and this weekend they head to Burnley where they have enjoyed some success in recent years.

The Gunners have never lost at Turf Moor during the Premier League era and are evens to make it back-to-back victories on Saturday.

The Clarets have taken one point from their first four games so with both teams hoping to pull away from the drop zone, we’ve taken a look at some of the markets and odds in our Burnley v Arsenal betting tips.

Match Odds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s tap-in against the Canaries gave Arsenal their first win and goal of a campaign which had started with three successive defeats.

Arteta made seven changes from the side destroyed 5-0 by Manchester City and they responded by taking 27 shots, with their expected goals mark of 2.69 the fourth highest of the weekend.

Arsenal have drawn this fixture in the last two seasons and another share of the spoils is available at 12/5 but it’s 16/5 on either 0-0 or 1-1 as it was in both of the games.

The Gunners have won three of their last six visits by a 1-0 scoreline and that option is available at 6/1 but Burnley scored and conceded in both home games against Brighton and Leeds so goals at both ends is priced at 4/5.

Sean Dyche’s side took the lead in both home matches and in Monday’s 3-1 defeat at Everton and they are 6/4 to go in front for a fourth time and 12/5 to do so in the first half.

Interestingly, the last five meetings between the teams were level at the break and an even first 45 minutes is available at evens as one of our Burnley v Arsenal betting tips.

Talking Tactics

Arteta went with a 4-2-3-1 against Norwich in which Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Albert Sambi Lokonga played the holding midfield roles behind Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe.

Dyche went with his usual 4-4-2 at Goodison Park where Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes led the line.

Ashley Westwood and Josh Brownhill played in central midfield with Joey Gudmundsson and Dwight McNeil out wide.

Goalscorer Odds

Aubameyang is 7/2 to bag the game’s opening goal as he has done in two of the last three games in this fixture, although he is 6/4 simply to score.

Saka is 9/1 to break the deadlock and 7/2 to get on the scoresheet while Pepe is 4/1 and 17/10 in the same markets.

Burnley striker Wood is 4/1 and 7/4 in both options but two of Burnley’s three goals have come from centre-back pairing James Tarkowski and Ben Mee, who can be backed at 16/1 and 14/1 respectively to find the net.
