Burnley have lost their last two league fixtures now and are winless in three. They start the weekend in 15th and will either finish there or one place, either way, depending on this result. Arsenal realistically blew their shot at the top four finish last weekend with a draw against Brighton. The Gunners have to win this and somehow overturn an eight-goal swing in the goal difference to Spurs. Read our Burnley v Arsenal betting tips for more.

The Clarets have lost their last two league games, failing to get on the scoresheet in either of those. They have won just the seven games at Turf Moor this season (D2 L9), but five of those have been since December 30th. Burnley have posted a W1 L4 record at home against the top six teams this season, their lone success in that sequence coming against Spurs. Burnley have averaged 1.3 goals per home fixture but in each of their last five home Premier League games, they have scored exactly two goals. The Clarets were on a twelve match scoring streak at home before losing 1-0 to Man City in their last home fixture.
In their last five home games, Burnley are W2 L3 and the two successes in that sequence were 2-0 victories over Wolves and Cardiff. The Clarets have earned a clean sheet in 28% of home games this season and each of their last three have ended under 2.5 goals. Of the home defeats which have gone against them this season, six of the nine have been by at least a two-goal margin. Burnley have scored 61% of their home goals in the first period of games. Only the current bottom three plus Bournemouth have conceded more league goals this season in the top flight than Burnley have. The Clarets start the weekend in 15th place and will either finish there or one place either way.
Arsenal were 3-1 winners at home over Burnley in December
The Gunners are on a nine-match winning streak against the Clarets
Burnley have lost their last three home games 1-0 against Arsenal
Both teams have scored in three of the last eight meetings
Arsenal could only manage a home draw against Brighton last weekend. That was costly as it means that they are highly unlikely to finish in the top four. In order to that, they have to claim maximum points, hope that Spurs lose and overturn an 8-goal deficit in the process. The Gunners have really tanked in their form at the end of the season. They are W1 D1 L4 in their last six league games now. Most of their troubles have come away from home as well where they are on a three-match losing streak, scoring just the one goal in that sequence.
Arsenal had a big extra shift in midweek too, beating Valencia to reach the Europa League Final. So that is where their focus will be, win that and they will reach the Champions League. 72% of Arsenal’s away games this season in the EPL have gone over 2.5 goals and a 1-0 win at Watford in the middle of April has been their only clean sheet away from the Emirates all term. Both teams have scored in 78% of Arsenal’s away games. The Gunners have averaged 1.5 goals per game on the road, conceding at an average of 1.9 per game. Five of their six away wins have been by a one-goal margin.
Arsenal’s top four ambitions really or already done and dusted. It’s been such poor form from them lately that it’s easy and reasonable enough to see Burnley getting under their skin at Turf Moor. Burnley-draw double chance looks a good proposition.

Arsenal’s form has been really rocky lately, having suffered a three-match losing streak. They are still miraculously in the hunt for a top-four finish though but need to at least match whatever Chelsea do this weekend to keep themselves in the mix. Brighton go into the weekend four points clear of the drop zone. Read our Arsenal v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)
The Gunners have got to rid themselves of some poor form in order to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive this weekend. It is a three-match losing streak that they are on at the moment. In each of those three defeats, which were against Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester, Arsenal conceded exactly three goals. Their last home game saw them go down against Palace, but that did snap a tremendous ten match winning streak of home form that the Gunners had been on. Arsenal have produced a W14 D2 L2 record on home soil this season in the top flight.
They have won eight of their nine games against teams currently in the bottom half of the table (the one exception the game against Crystal Palace). Arsenal have averaged 2.3 goals per home game there and their defence has actually done well. They have conceded at under a goal per game on average, taking a clean sheet in almost 40% of home fixtures. Of their fourteen home successes this season, 12 of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Arsenal have scored in each of their last seventeen home games, scoring at least two goals in each of their last nine at the Emirates.
Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw at Brighton earlier this season
The Seagulls are undefeated in their last two against the Gunners
Arsenal are W12 D3 L3 in the overall head to head against the Seagulls
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings
Brighton are not out of the weeds completely. They hold a four-point cushion over Cardiff but have a far superior goal difference to that of the Bluebirds. So that could be important at the end of the day. The difficulty for Brighton is that they have this tough away game and then they finish the season against Manchester City. So that’s a tough finish in a tight position. If they can just at least match whatever it is that Cardiff come up with on the weekend, then the Seagulls will be safe. So it’s going to be all hands to the pump at the Emirates for them. Brighton have taken just the two points from their last seven league games.
The Seagulls have posted an away record of W3 D3 L12 this season scoring just the fifteen league goals away from the Amex. In their last away game they nearly held out for a point at Spurs but conceded two minutes from time. That leaves them with a D1 L2 record from their last three away games. Brighton have managed a clean sheet in just 11% of their road fixtures and of the defeats suffered, half of them have been by at least a two-goal margin. Only the current bottom three have worse away records than that of Brighton. The Seagulls have been trailing at the halftime break in 9 of their 18 away games this season. They have failed to hit the back of the net in any of their last three on the road. They have scored in just one of their last seven games, home and away.
Arsenal did slip up in their last home game, but they have been pretty reliable at the Emirates this term. Brighton are not too likely to have enough to challenge them, but as they have to at least push, the home win & both teams to score isn’t a bad option.
4th May 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Leicester still have a top-seven finish to play for, so they have something to come out and be competitive for in his one. With Arsenal’s current despite, the Gunners having lost three of their last four league outings, there could be a good chance for the Foxes to come up with something in this one. Read our Leicester v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 27th, 2019 at 9:00 p.m.)
The Foxes played out a 2-2 draw against West Ham last weekend. They have gone W4 D1 L1 in their last six league games so aren’t in bad shape. They are going to have to break out a win in this one to keep their hopes of a top-seven finish going. This season at home they have produced a W7 D2 L8 record and they have won three of their last four at the King Power. The Foxes have been scoring pretty well lately, having netted at least two goals in all but one of their last eight league games, home and away.
Leicester have averaged 1.2 goals per home game this season and have conceded at a shade under that. In total, they have picked up a clean sheet in 24% of home games. Home and away they haven’t taken a clean sheet in their last four played though. The last two games at the King Power have gone under 2.5 goals and of the goals that they have conceded on home turf, 60% of them have been in the first half of games. Leicester have actually only opened the scoring in five home games this season. This is a big game for them if they want to push for European action next season.
The Foxes lost 3-1 at Arsenal earlier this season
The Foxes won this corresponding fixture last season 3-1
Each of the last three meetings have produced at least four goals
Arsenal have lost just one of their last 26 games against Leicester
The Gunners suffered a midweek 3-1 defeat against Wolves and that was on the back of last weekend’s defeat against Crystal Palace. So that has been a really disappointing return of results from them in the top flight. They have lost three of their last four played (W1). They are currently duelling with Man Utd and Chelsea for a top-four finish, but this has been a bad time for them to have their form desert them. Arsenal have won just one of their last four out on the road (D1 L2), losing two of their last three. Those defeats were against Everton and Wolves.
It hasn’t been highly positive stuff from the gunners all season as the Gunners have posted a W6 D4 L7 record on their travels. Their away form against sides currently in the top ten with them is poor. They have returned just a W1 D2 L5 record from their eight such games. Arsenal have scored a total of 28 away goals at an average of 1.65 per game. They have conceded heavily though at an average of 1.8 per road fixture. 71% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. A huge part of Arsenal’s problems have been at the back, as they have earned just one away clean sheet all season.
There’s reason enough to suspect Leicester can have a good go at getting a win on the board in this one. Arsenal have looked a little bit clueless on the road recently so the Foxes have to have some appeal. Home win.
27th April 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Wolves played out a point against Brighton on the weekend which will have been a little bit of a disappointing return from them in their race for a top seven finish. Arsenal were hit on home soil though on Sunday as Crystal Palace rattled off a 3-2 victory over them. That was the last thing that the Gunners needed in their push for a top-four finish. Read our Wolves v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 22nd, 2019 at 3:04 p.m.)
A 0-0 draw at home against Brighton was all that Wolves could manage on the weekend. That leaves them with only the one victory in their last five top-flight fixtures. So they are just a little bit of pace at the moment. There are still in with a good shot at a top seven finish though but will need to make the most of home advantage in fixtures like this. The overall home record of Wolves this season in the Premier League reads W8 D4 L5 and they are undefeated in their last six on home soil. In their five home games played against others from the big six this season, Wolves are W2 D1 L2.
Wolves have scored at least two goals in four of their last six on home soil and they are averaging 1.4 goals per game this season. Only 35% of fixtures at Molineux this term have made it over 2.5 goals. Playing a part in that is the very solid defence of Wolves which has taken a clean sheet in 35% of home games. Wolves have been level at the halftime break in nine of their home games this season. 71% of the goals that they have scored on home soil in the top flight this season have been in the second half of fixtures.
Wolves took a 1-1 draw from their trip to the Emirates in November
Arsenal are unbeaten in 20 games against Wolves
Wolves have lost all four previous EPL home games against Arsenal
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
Arsenal have setback on the weekend as they lost 2-3 at home against Crystal Palace. Considering that their home form had been so strong that was a bit of an upset. Even more upsetting really is that their home form has been keeping their chances of a top-four finish alive because the Gunners have been poor on the road this season. Arsenal are just W6 D4 L6 away from home this season in the top flight. Arsenal have lost three of their six away games played during 2019 (W2 D1) so it hasn’t been overly convincing stuff from them.
They did win their last away game though, a 1-0 success at Watford. That win against their 10 men of the Hornets, saw Arsenal claim their first away clean sheet of the season. Arsenal have averaged 1.7 goals per away game this season, which is roughly the same amount at which they have conceded at. 69% of Arsenal’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in 81% of Arsenal’s road games this season. Of the six away wins that Arsenal have recorded this season, five of them have been by a one-goal margin. Arsenal have opened the scoring in 10 of their away fixtures this season.
Arsenal have been good on the road this season in particular, while Wolves are on a good undefeated streak of home form. The home side may have enough to keep the visitors at they and a share of the spoils looks a good fit. Draw.

Arsenal managed to put some poor league away form behind them with a win at Watford last weekend. That wasn’t a convincing victory though. But the Gunners have had a fantastic season on home soil in the top flight and will be looking for more points as they push for a top-four finish. Crystal Palace could find themselves mathematically safe after this weekend’s action. Read our Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 5/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
Arsenal managed to dig out a 1-0 victory away at Watford last weekend, despite the Hornets being reduced to 10 men early in the game. Arsenal still looked second-best throughout the fixture. It has not been a good season away from home for them but their home form can’t be faulted. Arsenal are at W14 D2 L1 this season at home in the top flight. They are currently on a tremendous 10 match winning streak in the EPL at the Emirates. The Gunners have scored in each of their last 16 league games on home soil.
Arsenal have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight home fixtures. Overall they have averaged 2.3 goals per home fixtures this season, but they have also been strong defensively. Only 41% of league games at the Emirates have gone over 2.5 goals this season. That is because Arsenal have only conceded 12 home goals this season at an average of 0.7 per game. Of their 14 home victories recorded, 12 of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Gunners have scored 67% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures and they have also opened the scoring in 12 of their 17 home games. Manchester city in Liverpool are the only teams in the league to have scored more goals than Arsenal this season.
There was a 2-2 draw between these teams earlier this season
Arsenal are undefeated in their last three Premier League games against Palace
Crystal Palace are winless in their last seven league visits to Arsenal
Each of the last three meetings have gone over 3.5 goals
Crystal Palace suffered a 3-1 home reverse against Manchester City last weekend. That leaves them having alternated between a win and a loss in each of their last eight league fixtures. The good news for them is that if the streak continues they will be picking up a victory in this game. Away from home Crystal Palace hold a W7 D2 L8 record this season and that is better than what they have managed on home soil. Crystal Palace may well be a threat in this game because they have won three of their last four away games (L1).
Looking back further they have won five of their last eight away fixtures in the Premier League (D1 L3) which has been very good and enough to get them away from relegation troubles. The Eagles have taken a clean sheet in 29% of their away games, and they have both scored and conceded 26 goals on their travels this season. Palace have only managed the one clean sheet in their last six away from Selhurst Park. The Eagles do have a good half time away record of W8 D6 L3. They have scored 65% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures and have conceded 77% of their away goals after the halftime break.
Crystal Palace have put together some nice away form this season however it doesn’t match up to what Arsenal have produced at the Emirates. There may well be goals at both ends in this one but Arsenal can still take the victory.

This should be an interesting game at Vicarage Road on Monday night. Watford are on a great streak of home form at the moment and are aiming for a top seven finish. Arsenal’s ambitions of a top-four finish hit a bump last time out in the league, their poor away form coming back to haunt them. Read our Watford v Arsenal betting tips for more.

The Hornets have an FA Cup final to look forward too and they have a shot at a top seven finish in the league this season. Watford are on a three-match winning streak at home in the Premier League, going undefeated in their last five there. Each of their last six defeats in the league have been against one of the so-called big six. They have pretty much handle themselves against everyone else though. Their overall record at Vicarage Road this season is W8 D2 L5 where they have averaged 1.5 goals per game. 73% of Watford’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
While they have struggled against the better sides in the division, they did take the home win over Tottenham this season. Of their eight home victories, five of them have been by just the one-goal margin. Watford have no clean sheet in any of their last six played in the top flight, home and away. Each of those six have ended up going over 2.5 goals. Just four times this season have Watford been leading at half-time in a home fixture. The Hornets have scored 70% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures.
Arsenal were 2-0 winners at home over Watford in September
Things are even at two wins each in the last four EPL meetings
Watford won this corresponding fixture 2-1 last season
11 of the last 12 meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals
Arsenal suffered a 1-0 loss at Everton in their last Premier League game which snapped a six-match undefeated streak of form that they were on. The Gunners have been having a terrible time of things away from home this season with just the one victory recorded in their last nine out on the road. Still their wait for a clean sheet away from home continues this season with none on the board so far. The overall away record of Arsenal is pretty poor at W5 D4 L6. They have not won an away game against any side currently sitting in the top half of the table losing four of six such fixtures.
Arsenal have been really slack at the back averaging 1.8 goals per game against them away from home this season. 73% of all of Arsenal’s away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Four of Arsenal’s five away wins this season have been by the one-goal margin only and for their six away defeats have been by just the one goal margin too. The Gunners have conceded 61% of their away goals in the first period of matches, but despite that, they have opened the scoring in nine of their 15 road fixtures. Only Manchester City in Liverpool have scored more league goals than Arsenal have done this season and they average 1.7 goals per away game.
It is not often that Arsenal have looked particularly comfortable on the road this season and will be nervous for this one. Watford are in great nick at Vicarage Road at the moment and have enough about them to go and get a revenge victory on the board. Home win.

The Toffees have put back to back league wins together after picking up a good away win at West Ham on the weekend.

Everton beat West Ham 2-0 on the weekend to make it back to back league successes for them. They have improved to a W3 D1 L1 record now in their last five outings. Their home record stands at W7 D4 L5 this easy and they scored a fantastic 2-0 home win over Chelsea in their last home fixture. That is, however, their only home win this season against a side in the top half of the table. In such games, Everton are W1 D2 L4 this season. The Toffees have produced an average of 1.4 goals per home game, with less than half of their home fixtures going over 2.5 goals.
They have banked a clean sheet in 38% of home games and their defence has improved drastically since the end of February. They have four clean sheets in their last five at the moment. If you look back, each to their last five league wins, home and away have all been with a clean sheet. Can they do enough to keep Arsenal at arm’s length? Only two of their seven home wins have been by a one-goal margin. Everton have been level at half time in 10 of their 16 home games. The Toffees have scored 61% of their home goals after the half time break.
Arsenal were 2-0 home winners over Everton in September
The Gunners won 5-2 on their last visit to Goodison Park
Everton are winless in four against the Gunners
Arsenal have scored at least goals in each of their last four against Everton
The Gunners earned a solid 2-0 home win over Newcastle last Monday. That leaves them with five wins in their last six games (D1) and they have some important momentum behind them now in the race for a top-four finish. The Gunners though have only won five away games this season (D4 L5) so have had their issues on the road. In their last away game, they picked up a good point against rivals Spurs. But it left them with only one win in their last eight away games (D3 L4). That lone win in that sequence was against Huddersfield.
The Gunners have scored 26 goals away from home at an average of 1.86 per game. 79% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Arsenal are still on the hunt for their first away clean sheet of the season. More than half of their away games have gone over 3.5 goals. Four of Arsenal’s five away wins have been by a one-goal margin only. Just twice have they been leading at half time away from home. That is despite them having opened the scoring in 9 of 14 away games. Home and away, Arsenal are on a nine-match scoring streak in the league. Only Man City and Liverpool have scored more league goals than Arsenal this season.
There is far more at stake for Arsenal here and despite their poor away form this season, they should have the bit between their teeth. Everton have improved recently, but their defence is going to come under pressure in this one. Away win.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:14 p.m.)
The Gunners collected a good 2-0 home success over Manchester United in their last league fixture. That moved them on to a five-match undefeated streak of league form, with a win in four of those. Their home form has been highly impressive as they are on a nine-match winning streak at the Emirates in the top flight. Overall the Gunners are W13 D2 L1 on home soil in the top flight this season. Arsenal have been consistent in front of goal, with at least two goals scored in each of their last seven home league fixtures. They have scored 68% of their home goals in the second half of matches.
Arsenal have scored in each and every league home game and they have been so defensively strong too. They have only conceded an average of 0.75 goals per home game. So even with their good scoring form, less than half of games at the Emirates have made it above 2.5 goals. Three of their last five home wins have been by a 2-0 scoreline. Arsenal have picked up a two-goal margin win in 9 of their 13 victories. The Gunners have opened the scoring in 11 of their 16 home fixtures.
Arsenal were 2-1 winners at St James’ Park in September
The Gunners are on a six-match winning straight at home in the EPL against Newcastle
Each of Arsenal’s last five wins over Newcastle have been by a one-goal margin
The last two between these in North London ended in a 1-0 home win
Newcastle have done well over the second half of the season to keep the relegation zone at a somewhat comfortable distance. The Magpies have won three of their last five games (D1 L1) however each of the wins in that sequence were on home soil. Newcastle’s away form for the season doesn’t make for pretty reading really. They have only won twice on their travels (D7 L6). Newcastle have lost all five of their away games played against sides currently sat in the top six.
Scoring goals has been a problem for Newcastle away from home because they do take a cautious approach to things. The Magpies have failed to score in two of their last four-way from St James’ Park. 75% of the goals which they have come up with away from home have been scored in the first period of fixtures. Just 40% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals as Newcastle have taken a clean sheet in 27% of their road fixtures. Newcastle have no clean sheet in seven road games. They have been level at half time in 9 of 15 away fixtures.
All the stats really point to a home win in this one. Arsenal are so strong on home soil and are scoring so consistently. It’s likely that they will have too much for a Newcastle side who have only won twice on their travels. Arsenal to win to nil.

Man Utd 2/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 8th, 2019 at 3:40 p.m.)
The Gunners have great home form going behind them at the moment as they are on an eight-match winning streak at the Emirates. They are undefeated in their last 14 on home soil, their only reverse this season on home soil coming right at the start of the season against Manchester City. The Gunners have also produced at least two goals in each of their last six home games. The Gunners are on a 14 match scoring streak at home in the top flight. Across the course of the season, Arsenal have averaged 2.3 goals per home game played, while they have conceded at under a goal per game on average.
40% of their home games this season have ended over 3.5 goals. So with their scoring form, it should produce a fantastic clash between these two rivals. Twice Arsenal took the lead at Old Trafford when they faced Manchester United in December, but twice they were pegged back in a 2-2 draw. Of the home goals that Arsenal have scored the season, 69% of them have been in the second half of matches. The Gunners have opened the scoring in 10 of their 15 home League games. Manchester City are the only side in the League to have a better home record then Arsenal have this season, and City are one of two sides only who have produced more League goals than Arsenal this season.
Man Utd earned a point in a 2-2 home draw against Arsenal in December
The Red Devils then took a 3-1 win at the Emirates in the FA Cup
Manchester United are undefeated in four against the Gunners, winning three
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings
Manchester United are on a big six-match winning streak away from Old Trafford in the top flight. During that sequence, they have conceded just two goals as well. So it has been a huge improvement over the second half of the season from the Red Devils away from home. They are now up to a total of 30 away goals scored this season which is an average of exactly 2 goals per away game. 73% of Manchester United’s away games this season have ended up over 2.5 goals. They have also recorded a clean sheet in 33% of their road games.
From their four away games played against other of the current top six sides, Manchester United have only posted a W1 D1 L2 record, conceding at least two goals in three of those games. The overall away record of Manchester United this season is W9 D2 L4. The Red Devils have hit the back of the net in each and every away game played this season. They have conceded 60% of their away goals in the first half of matches. United have opened the scoring in eight of their 15 road games. The Red Devils have the joint third best away record in this season’s top flight.
A fantastic battle this should be. The prediction of a high-scoring game isn’t the big reach at all. Manchester United are just hard to beat right now and while Arsenal are carrying some great home form they have remained a little vulnerable at the back. Manchester United have a great chance of avoiding defeat. Draw.

A huge North London Derby coming up on the weekend to start Saturday’s Premier League action. The three points on offer in this one are equally huge because the two rivals are fighting hard for a top-four finish this season. Will Spurs be able to get some revenge after a heavy loss against Arsenal earlier this season? Read our Tottenham v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
Tottenham are carrying good home form at the moment having won each of their last three at Wembley in top-flight action. They have averaged two goals per game in those three victories. Overall this season Tottenham have averaged 1.8 goals per home game. They have conceded at a rate of under a goal per game on average in home fixtures. 62% of their league home games have made it over 2.5 goals and 46% have gone over 3.5 goals. The overall home form of Tottenham this season in the Premier League is W9 L4 from 13 played.
Tottenham have struggled in their home games against other top five sides. They have played three and lost three in such games. Each of those three defeats were by a one-goal margin. Spurs have taken a clean sheet in 31% of their home fixtures this season and they have been leading at the halftime break in seven of their home games. Of the home goals which they have conceded 67% of them have come in the second half of fixtures. Spurs have opened the scoring in nine of their 13 league home games.
Arsenal earned a 4-2 home win over Spurs earlier this season
Spurs then took a league cup win at the Emirates over the Gunners
Things are even with two wins each and three draws in their last seven EPL meetings
Tottenham are unbeaten in four league home games against Arsenal, winning three
It will be interesting to see what Arsenal can produce in this one given the amount of struggles that they have had on the road recently in the Premier League. It has been poor from them as they have posted a W1 D2 L4 record in their last seven Premier League away games. That leaves them with an overall away record this season of just W5 D3 L5.
They are still in the race for a top-four finish, however looking at what they have done against top half of the table sides away from home this season it doesn’t make good reading. Arsenal have played five away games against current top half of the table teams and from those games, they have taken just one point.
Arsenal have conceded heavily away from home this season, averaging two goals per game against them. 62% of the away games Arsenal have been involved in this season have ended up over 3.5 goals. The Gunners have done just fine in front of goal away from home averaging 1.9 goals per away game.
Just once this season have Arsenal been leading at the halftime break in an away fixture, having been level in eight of them. There has been no clean sheet from Arsenal this season away from the Emirates. Arsenal have conceded 62% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures.
