Arsenal will be desperate for a lift when they welcome Burnley to the Emirates Stadium for Sunday’s Premier League clash.

The Gunners have lost three and won none of their last four games, suffering an EFL Cup elimination to Liverpool and going out to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup during that run.

Arsenal vs Burnley latest odds

Nevertheless, Arsenal are clear 4/11 (1.36) favourites with bet365 to return to form by coming out on top in their first league game since New Year’s Day.

Sean Dyche’s men have played just two league games over the last six weeks due to Covid-19 postponements and Burnley are 8/1 (9.0) outsiders to pull off a shock win in north London.

Four of the visitors' last eight league games on the road have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on them claiming a creditable point in this one.

Arsenal vs Burnley first goalscorer

Alexandre Lacazette is the 15/4 (4.75) favourite to open the scoring with just his second goal in nine games, although Emile Smith Rowe could prove a smart bet at 7/1 (8.0) considering he has struck in seven of his last 11 league matches.

With Chris Wood departed and Maxwel Cornet at Afcon, Jay Rodriguez and Matej Vydra are the visitors' joint 12/1 (13.0) favourites to break the deadlock despite having just one league goal between them.

Arsenal vs Burnley preview

After a disappointing run of cup games, Mikel Arteta will be relieved to return to normal service in the league.

The Spaniard’s team were actually in strong form prior to their cup interruption, winning four successive league games prior to their unfortunate 2-1 home defeat against Manchester City.

Having also kept four consecutive clean sheets in home league games before the City clash, they will certainly back themselves to keep at bay a Clarets team deprived of their key front men.

Arsenal vs Burnley tips & predictions

With Burnley having scored just two goals in their last five league matches, odds of 11/10 (2.10) seem generous on Arsenal winning to nil for their fifth home game in six in the league.

All odds correct at time of writing. 18+.
