The Clarets continue to grow as a strong force under the watch of Sean Dyche when one takes into account that they currently sit in an impressive seventh on the table. Burnley have proved to be a headache for the top guns and are quoted at high odds of (6.00) with Bet365 to cause a major upset.
Arsene Wenger’s side claimed the bragging rights by seeing off Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in last weekend’s North London Derby. It was however a less inspiring performance from them in midweek as they lost away to Cologne in the Europa League. The 1-0 loss was still enough for them to make it to the last 32 and are the favoured team here at the price of (1.50).
A stalemate at the end of 90 minutes is offered at (4.33) with the same betting firm.
Burnley have lost nine of their last 13 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions, last claiming victory back in 2008. They are not considered favourites here but putting into context their solid form at home where they hardly drop points, they are a juicy (2.62) for a double chance.
Strikingly, Arsenal have won in their last six league visits to Turf Moor including the last two which ended 1-0. Backing that scoreline for the Gunners is available are (8.00) while it’s a lipsmacking (17.00) for the Clarets.
Dyche’s men are usually set out at frustrating the efforts of their opponents thus limiting the number of goals that goes in. A pick of less than three goals in the game and both teams NOT finding the back of the net is priced at (1.40) and (1.95) respectively.
Olivier Giroud has been used from the bench 10 times which is the most of any player in the Premier League this season. The Frenchman has seven goals as a substitute since the start of the previous campaign and is tipped by Bet365 to score anytime at (1.90).
