Arsenal v Burnley tips – Gunners could destroy Clarets
Burnley are struggling badly and this trip to the Emirates comes at a bad time
October 29th, 2014
Arsenal are getting the usual criticism this season although Arsene Wenger’s side sit in fifth position and a victory on Saturday should launch them into the top four.
Three points seem nailed on against a Burnley side with just four points from nine games so far this season, with the Gunners getting a much-needed breather after Champions League exertions this term.
It is clear that Wenger should have strengthened the defensive areas in the summer although Calum Chambers is now establishing himself alongside Per Mertesacker and there is every reason to suggest Arsenal could win this game by a comfortable margin.
Betfair offer a best price 2/7 about a home win although we can do better when it comes to profiting from this match and BetVictor’s 6/5 about a home win to nil looks pretty tasty.
The last thing Sean Dyche will want is a demolition at the hands of a team for whom Alexis Sanchez is flourishing, while Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey could play a part in an Arsenal victory.
Therefore, the visitors will look to stay nice and compact in defence, having suffered a 4-0 thrashing at The Hawthorns a few weeks ago and last weekend’s 3-1 reverse at home to Everton continues to suggest they are simply not good enough at this level.
Sanchez is a 4/1 poke to score first in this particular game, with the Chilean having nabbed both goals during the 2-0 win at Sunderland last weekend.
BetVictor go 30/1 about a 5-0 win for the Gunners and they have threatened to score that many goals all season, with Danny Welbeck likely to be in the groove for this match.
