Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction at Burnley FC


January, and with it the winter transfer window, are now over and that means Arsenal can now turn their attention to the road trip to Burnley FC on Sunday. They shored up their defense with pragmatic, but not splashy signings. Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari were cost-effective additions that should help the Gunners make a push for the top six. The top four…well that train left the station awhile ago.

So let’s take a look at what kind of Gunners first team we might see when manager Mikel Arteta fills out the sheet.

Prediction: Arsenal 3, Burnley 2

Google gives the Gunners a 47% chance of a victory here, while the hosts’ projection shows 26% chance of winning. There’s a 27% chance it ends in stalemate. Arsenal’s road form is, well, you know, how it’s been, but they should have no problems scoring against a side that has conceded the fifth most goals in the Premier League this season.

We’re thinking they will score enough to get the job done.
