Not many would have thought that after 11 Gameweeks this clash would have been considered bottom six vs. bottom six, though a terrible start to the season has seen the Gunners sit just three places above the relegation zone.
In fairness, with how congested the table is at this stage in the middle, Mikel Arteta’s side are still only eight points off the top four, and seven above relegation, though you get the feeling that anything other than a win here and some serious questions are going to get asked about their capabilities.
It’s now four games without a win for the North-London side, and although they did face Man City and Tottenham in that run, it’s still not good enough for a side of Arsenal’s calibre.
What’s even more concerning for Gunners fans is the lack of goals they’re seeing, having scored just once from open play in nearly 11 hours now, while even that came following a corner taken short in defeat to Wolves.
Under 2.5 Goals
The thing that stands out for this game is a distinct lack of goalscoring ability from either side, with a combined 10 goals from open play across 21 matches, so it’s a bit strange to see ‘Unders’ as long as it is.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the clear goalscoring threat in this match, though even he has just two goals to his name this season, his worst return at this stage of a campaign since he managed the same number for Monaco in 2010, so it’s difficult to figure out how he’s odds-on to net here.
14 of Burnley’s 18 goals this season have come against sides currently in the top seven in the table, keeping three clean sheets in five games against sides outside that bracket so we’d expect them to put up a good fight at the Emirates.
Arsenal have won 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two, though we’d be hesitant about looking too much into that with current form far more telling, and this Gunners side look to have a lot less about them than in previous years.
Arteta will be looking at this game as a way to get back to winning ways, so won’t be pushing for a landslide victory and leaving themselves exposed at the back, which would play perfectly for an ‘Unders’ bet.
