Good momentum is hard to come by this season for a lot of teams, but Arsenal come into a third successive away game on the back of two come-from-behind wins over Benfica and Leicester. The Gunners will be desperate for a third win on the bounce against Burnley with stiffer Europa League and Premier League games to follow.

Burnley are traditionally tough to beat at Turf Moor and have drawn their last four games here, but we think Arsenal will have more than enough to get the three points on Saturday lunch time and I have a tasty 22/1 Bet Builder to tuck into to kick-start your weekend.

Arsenal to Win

First up we have Arsenal to win. After beating Benfica last Thursday, Mikel Arteta rested both of his star attacking players, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, for their away trip to Leicester last week. Replacements Nicolas Pepe and Willian put in arguably their best performances as a pair this season and should be full of confidence if called upon again at Turf Moor.

A huge factor for Arsenal in this game is the week off they’ve had to prepare for this game whereas Burnley had a tough game against Leicester midweek, with only two full days to prepare for this game. We’re backing Arsenal to Win here.

Both Teams To Score? No

We think Arsenal can keep a clean sheet here too, so for the second leg we are going with Both Teams To Score? No. Only Man City and Chelsea have conceded fewer goals than Arsenal this season.

Their defence has been much improved this season compared to the last few, but they are always prone to some calamitous moments. Keep those moments at bay and Burnley will find it tough to score here, having scored just once in their last three games with Ashley Barnes out injured.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang to Score Anytime

The third leg of our Bet Builder is Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang to Score Anytime. Aubameyang loves scoring against Burnley with seven Premier League goals to his name against them so far.

He hasn’t had his greatest season by any means but did manage to score a hat-trick against Leeds before a brace at Benfica. He will be well-rested after playing just seven minutes against Leicester last time out and, if given half a chance on his right foot, you can expect him to fire in his 15th goal this season.

Ashley Westwood to be Booked

Finally, we are looking to the card markets for the final leg, and one I like the look of is Burnley’s holding midfielder Ashley Westwood to be Booked. Westwood has been Burnley’s most booked player this season, and with the like of Martin Odegaard, Aubameyang and Saka trying to break quickly into the opposition half, one cynical foul should be enough to go into the book.
