Arsenal visited Turf Moor on Sunday evening for the important premier league game and it was Wenger’s 20year in-charge of Arsenal celebrations as well. However Burnley has proved to be a difficult team to beat at home and that’s exactly what Arsenal found out. Burnley held Arsenal in the first 45 minutes and they kept defending resiliently for a result and just when it looked like a point secured, Arsenal got lucky and scored a late goal to win all three points.

Match Highlights (English)
Arsenal can go second in the table with a convincing win over Burnley this Sunday evening. All the focus has been on Arsene Wenger in the build up to this weekend’s game who will be celebrating 20 years incharge of Arsenal. Anything but a win would really put a dent of Arsenal’s recent form which has been absolute top notch. Arsenal has won 4 and drawn 1 since their opening day defeat in the hands of Liverpool and another win on Sunday will take them to 16 points on the table.
Arsenal vs Burnley Preview: Burnley will be playing their fifth home game in the opening seven league matchdays and the return of 7 points in four home games represent a good outcome where highlight was that 2-0 win over Liverpool earlier in the season. Arsenal on the other hand are unbeaten away from home so far this season.
Arsenal is likely to go with Alexies Sanchez upfront with Iwobi, Ozil and Walcott playing in attacking roles ahead of Xhaka and Cazorla. Both Giroud and Perez will be on the bench for Arsenal. While Burnley to keep their trusted 4-5-1 system where Vokes to playing upfront while a packed midfield of Gudmundsson, Hendrik, Defour, Boyd and Marney will provide must needed strength in the midfield.
This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Sunday evening..
As far as the predictions are concerned, I can not see Burnely getting anything against Arsenal who are in such good goal scoring form at the moment. I am going with a 3-1 win for Arsenal in this one.
