Burnley vs Arsenal Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-3.

In recent months this fixture appeared to have a lot riding on it on the final day of the Premier League campaign, but Burnley have since secured top-flight safety while Arsenal have almost certainly missed out on the top four.

Predictions

Arsenal’s failure to defeat Brighton on Sunday has ensured that they will need a remarkable turn of events on the final day of the season to secure a top four spot.

The Gunners will need to win at Burnley and hope Chelsea lose at Leicester, while also having an eight-goal swing in their favour – an extremely unlikely set of circumstances.

However, Unai Emery’s side will be hoping to secure a top five spot ahead of Manchester United, who trail them by a point going into the final day of the season.

Burnley are safe – they are three places and nine points above the relegation zone going into the final day of the season and have nothing but pride to play for.

The visitors will be favourites despite not possessing home advantage, or superior form over Burnley, but their higher quality makes them favourites.

The away side are favourites to win this game although their poor away form may mean another defeat is likely – a 2-1 triumph for Sean Dyche’s side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

The 29-year-old is Burnley’s top scorer this campaign with 11 Premier League strikes to his name – he netted recently at Chelsea alongside the 3-1 victory at Brighton. Arsenal have shipped six goals in their last two away games and their porous defence may come unstuck again here. Barnes scored in this fixture earlier in the campaign, and is 9/5 at Unibet to score anytime.
