Despite having won just one of their last five against Burnley FC, Arsenal are heavily pegged to easily beat the Clarets on Saturday afternoon.
That’s because this Premier League fixture is your classic opposite ends of the table clash, with two sides going in different directions. Burnley will have the added disadvantage of being without their top scorer, and possibly, even their second most producer of goals too.
