England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6 March 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Turf Moore, Burnley
Burnley is in danger of being drawn into the deep end of the relegation zone this season as they continue to struggle in the league. They go into this game winless in their last 3 outings. Their last result was a disappointing 4-0 loss to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur, a pointer to their defensive crisis this term out.
Arsenal on the other hand is finding resurgence in form in the league after their initial struggles. The visitor goes into this fixture on the back of three wins in their last five games. They still hold they believe that they can get into Europe for next season despite the tight race in the league. They currently sit in the 10th spot on the league table. Their impressive 3-1 win over Leicester City in their last league match will sure help to spur them on in their quest.
It is worthy of note that only one out of the last ten matchup between this teams ended in a draw, so it means the encounter is often decided within the 90 minutes. Burnley came out tops last term with a narrow 0-1 win away at the Emirate stadium, and that is the only win recorded by the home side in the last 15 fixtures between these teams.
So far, Arsenal has scored 34 goals from 26 league games this season and with their captain rediscovering his form, they will be looking to get more at Turf Moore.
- Burnley’s form in last 5 matches: DLDDW.
