Arsenal Vs Burnley: Three Hugely Important Things to Look Forward to at the Emirates

Arsenal vs Burnley

Arsenal host Burnley at home this weekend in one of the much awaited encounter in the Premier League.

Both sides have had a contrasting season but the match promises to be a different kettle of fish from the previous game.

Arsenal is fifth in the League table while Burnley is within the relegation hemisphere. The match provides more assessments(squad) for both sides as we look forward to a pulsating encounter.

Here are three things to expect as Burnley visits Emirates this weekend.

Massive Response from Arsenal

The host will be out to cut their 2 games losing streak at home against Burnley but that remains to be seen knowing how stern and robust the visiting side(Burnley) can be when they visits the big side in the Premier League.

Two defeat in a row is a big asking(questions) for Arsenal as there is need for redemption ahead of the festive Period. Latest 3-2 defeat against Southampton has raised defensive questions at Arsenal and there is need for the players to prove a point when Burnley visits at the Emirates.

This has neither been helped by Tottenham Hotspur’s 0-2 win in the Carabao Cup as Arsenal faces further criticism if victory is not attained in this fixture.

Burnley’s Relegation Fury

The visitors are in the relegation pool and this match provides them with a chance to put things right.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley side are not new comers when it comes to games like this and it will be nice to see how they set themselves up against Arsenal. Burnley is known for their aerial antics which Arsenal may not completely have an answer to. That’s why the match is a bit open for both sides despite Arsenal superior quality.

Arsenal should be way of their visitor’s position on the log as they comes visiting with relegation fury at the Emirates.

Personal Changes

This is widely expected from both sides as fixtures can take toil on players.

However, these changes may be peculiar to the home side as Unai Emery will fancy his chance to pick a different squad other than the starting eleven that featured against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Unai Emery started with Alex Iwobi ahead of French forward Lacazette in the Spurs defeat.

This may have prompted series of talks in general and looks set to change with the French forward likely to partner Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang in attack when they take to the pitch against visitors Burnley.
