Both sides started the season with a win last weekend and our tipster is backing goals - at both ends - when Unai Emery's men host Sean Dyche's side

Arsenal play host to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Both sides began their respective campaigns in the best possible fashion last weekend. The Gunners were 1-0 winners against Newcastle United on Tyneside, while the Clarets cruised to a 3-0 victory against Southampton at Turf Moor.

Maintaining momentum, then, is the objective for both teams when they lock horns in north London this weekend.

Latest odds

Arsenal are bet365's 3/10 (1.30) favourites to pick up all three points from their first home fixture of the campaign whilst Sean Dyche's Clarets can be backed at 17/2 (9.50) to spring a surprise against the Gunners.

Burnley, though, have not defeated Arsenal in north London in almost 45 years. The odds compilers offer 9/2 (5.50) that Saturday's showdown ends in stalemate. Just one of the last 15 meetings between these teams have ended all square.

Team news

Alexandre Lacazette was an unused substitute at St James' Park last weekend and is pushing for his first start of the season. Nicolas Pepe will also be hoping to make his first competitive start for the club, having come off the bench last weekend.

Ashley Barnes scored twice for Burnley as they saw off Southampton at Turf Moor, so will be hoping to get amongst the goals again in north London. Steven Defour and Robbie Brady remain sidelined for the Clarets.

Preview

Arsenal have won each of the last 10 matches between these teams in all competitions and have scored 11 goals in their last three fixtures against the Clarets.

As such, the 6/5 (2.20) quote from bet365 for the Gunners to score more than two goals could well prove popular.

The odds compilers offer 5/6 (1.83) that Emery's men (-1) beat the handicap mark in north London. That particular play would have landed in each of the last three matches between the teams.

Prediction

Better value, though, could lie in backing a goal-laden game in north London. Burnley were in free-scoring form in pre-season, notching 12 goals in their final four friendly fixtures.

Dyche's men then carried on their scoring streak against Southampton at Turf Moor last weekend and will surely be full of confidence for their meeting with Emery's men.

Arsenal ran out as 3-1 winners in both matches between these teams last term and the 13/10 (2.30) quote for at least three goals to be scored - with both teams on target - could prove popular.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score at 13/10 (2.30) for a 1pt stake at bet365
