Sports Innovation previews the Premier League match between Burnley and Arsenal and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
Burnley welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor on Saturday for their latest Premier League match.
The 19th-place hosts are winless after their first four games of the season, with just a single point to their name. Sean Dyche, fresh from putting pen-to-paper on a new four-year contract, doesn’t have a great record in this fixture either. The Clarets boss has lost 10 of his 13 encounters with Arsenal (W1 D2) across all competitions.
Dyche’s Arsenal counterpart Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, hailed a 1-0 win over Norwich as ‘the best week’ of his career. Last weekend’s victory was the Gunners’ first of the season. The three points lift them out of the relegation zone into 16th-place. Now they hope to make it back-to-back wins at Turf Moor, where they’ve been held to draws in their last two visits.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
Stats and analysis in the Premier League
Burnley have a poor record from their last 10 Premier League outings. The Clarets hit the target 0.7 times on average per game, scoring 7 goals along the way. More importantly, they kept just 1 clean sheet and conceded only 17 goals, which is an average of 1.7 per game.
Arsenal head to Turf Moor hoping to keep their impressive defensive stats from their last 10 Premier League fixtures going.

Rather amazingly, they only kept their opponents from scoring in 4 of the matches.
