Arsenal - Burnley

Arsenal are third with three points less than the leaders. Theoretically, they could take a top with a win today with four goals margin. However, the most important thing is they’re still in the title race. A month ago they faced the crisis noticing just one point in three games, but after that made three consecutive wins. Title is a dream, first bad result in this phase of the league would eliminate them and I don’t expect any kind of possible relaxation. Aaron Ramsey has joined the injury list alongside Campbell, Djourou, Gallas, Gibbs, Merida and Van Persie. Vela will be rested after the international duty, while Alex Song is suspended. Good thing for Gunners is Abou Diaby and Andrey Arshavin are back in contention after recovering from injuries.


Although Burnley have collected just one point less than first club above the relegation line, their recent results and performances suggest they’re certain travelers to the second tier. They have a single win (West Ham, 2-1 at home) in last 16 encounters! It seems losing Owen Coyle was the decisive factor in their Premier campaign, as they lost great run of results at home. On the other hand, their away shape could be called disgusting. One point from 14 games (Man.City 3-3) and in every game except one (Bolton 0-1) conceded at least two goals. In total, they’ve conceded 43 goals which is far the most in the league. Leading scorer Steven Fletcher is expected to play with a cast on the broken hand, while player-coach Graham Alexander will return after five weeks. Skipper defender Caldwell and defender McCann remain sidelined.


Only thing that could be a worry for Wenger is their Champions League re-match vs. Porto at Tuesday. But on the other hand, considering today’s opponent this is a great chance for warming-up and bringing the confidence for Tuesday. Wenger won’t rotate players too much, but the fact is any players should win this with few goals margin. This is also a chance for Arshavin to recover his old shape. Arsenal -2 ah will be a bet, -2.5 would be a gamble.
