Both teams got off to a good start on matchday 1, winning their opening games. They will now meet for the first time this season in the second weekend of the season. Arsenal is 5-0 against Burnley in their last 5 head to head meetings.
Burnley won 3-0 over Southampton and will hope to upset Arsenal on the road this weekend. Keyword here is on the road. Burnley has not beat Arsenal since 2008 and they have not won on the road against Arsenal since 1974.
The attack looked great for Burnley last week when they scored three times. Ashley Barnes was able to score twice to put this game away. Although it was just week 1, this is the kind of attack that needs to be consistent for this Burnley side. They will be much more tested against Arsenal, so even scoring one goals would probably be considered a success.
The defending is where Burnley needs to be strong if they are going to get any positive result from this game. Keeping a clean sheet on Southampton is one thing, doing the same to Arsenal is a whole other story. One worrisome thing to consider, is Burnley only has 46% of the possession against Southampton. This is likely going to decrease against Arsenal, so Burnley must take advantage of any chances they might get.
Arsenal got a 1-0 win over Newcastle United to start their season out on the right foot. It was the first game, so they get the benefit of the doubt, but a 1-0 over a club like Newcastle probably means Arsenal did not play their greatest game.
As I mentioned, Arsenal only scored once in their first game. This goal came in the 58th minute and was scored by who other than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He will once again be under the spotlight for matchday 2, but also the rest of the Arsenal attack needs to get more involved. Arsenal dominates Burnley and they should easily score multiple times against them. If they fail to do so, questions might arise even this early in the season.
The Arsenal defending held strong, and ended up keeping a clean sheet. They allowed Newcastle to take 9 shots, but only 2 were on target. The goalie also had to make 2 saves. There is a good chance that Arsenal can shut out Burnley, but Burnley has scored in the last two meetings with Arsenal, so I would not be surprised if Arsenal allows one goal in the match.
