Arsenal to enjoy home comforts against Burnley

Both Arsenal and Burnley made winning starts to the new Premier League season. Can Arsenal make it two from two in front of an expectant home crowd or will the Clarets spoil the party? Have a read of our preview here:

Is there a better run club than Burnley?

Burnley continue to prove that a well-run club does not need to over stretch themselves to stay in the Premier League. A firm trust in their manager, Sean Dyche, and the ability to back him in the transfer market when required without breaking the bank has been a very successful model for the Lancashire club.

This summer’s business was, again, understated but picking up players like Jay Rodriguez and Danny Drinkwater have added quality and experience to a side with plenty of know-how.

The opening day thrashing of Southampton at Turf Moor was, along with Brighton’s win against Watford, one of the most impressive performances of the round.

It is the first time since 1966 that Burnley have won their first game of a league season by a three-goal margin or greater.

It was one that delighted Dyche who admitted his players had returned from the summer with a real hunger and desire to win.

"We've all learned from last season. It doesn't guarantee anything but the brain's clear and they've come in with a thirst and desire knowing how tough the Premier League is," said Dyche.

"It's a nice start for us. The mentality and energy, the will and desire was all there. The lads have come in really bright this season."

Can Emery address Arsenal’s long-standing problems?

Emery has returned for his second season in charge with a far from perfect squad but the additions of Dani Ceballos, Kieran Tierney and Nicolas Pepe will certainly help.

The opening day win against Newcastle will have shown the Spanish manager all sides of his team in a 90-minute spell but the performance of Ainsley Maitland-Niles and finishing of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang will have given him a lot of pleasure.

With the first three points on the board, the Gunners can return home and concentrate on improving the performance. If they can get Kolasinac and Ozil back in the line up it would be a big help too.

Arsenal v Burnley betting tip

Although Burnley started the season on fire, a trip to a side like Arsenal has often been problematic. The fast-paced attacking style of the Gunners should see them win and therefore backing them to do so by a two-goal margin at odds of 33/10 is excellent value should it land.
