Arsenal have finally got their first win and plan to continue their form away to Burnley on week five of the Premier League

The game will kick off at 15:00 on Saturday, 18th September in Turf Moor with Anthony Taylor officiating.

Sean Dyche has not made the start to the season that he would have wanted. After four games, the team has only gotten one draw against Leeds two weeks ago.

They are about to go into a tough run of fixtures including Manchester City and Leicester so they will need to get some more points on the board this weekend.

The Gunners’ faithful are hoping that the squad has turned a new leaf, they got their first points of the league after beating bottom table side Norwich last week. In the match, they took 30 shots but only converted one goal.

Arteta will need to improve his shooting performance now that he is facing a side famed for their strong, obedient defense.

Arsenal should love this tie as they have won ten of their last 13 fixtures. Last season was a major blip for them as they drew and lost at home to Dyche’s men so this could go either way.

Score Prediction

This tie does not guarantee goals, you would have to go back over two years to see either team score more than one. Form is on Mikel Arteta’s team’s side and that could prove to be the difference this Saturday.

Expect the game to end 2-0 to Arsenal.
