So that saw the great unbeaten streak of the Gunners come crashing down, but they can get back to winning ways immediately? Burnley start the weekend in the bottom three after suffering a loss against Tottenham last weekend. Read our Arsenal v Burnley betting tips for more.

Arsenal’s long unbeaten form in Premier League games came crashing down in spectacular style last weekend. They went down 3-2 at St Mary’s against Southampton. The Gunners had put together a fourteen match unbeaten streak of form in the Premier League prior to that. They get back to home soil this weekend looking to add to an already good record this season at the Emirates. Arsenal are W6 D2 L1 for the season at home. They have remained undefeated in their last eight games at the Emirates. In their home fixtures, this season Arsenal have produced 17 goals, shipping just the eight.
Largely in part because of their defence, just 33% of Arsenal’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. The Gunners have taken a clean sheet in a third of their home fixtures. However, in their last five games home and away combined, they have earned only the one clean sheet. 82% of their home goals have been scored during the second period of matches. They are on a terrific scoring streak though having netted in each of their last sixteen. They have found the back of the net in all home fixtures this term. Still, they haven’t found themselves ahead at the halftime break in any league game this season.
The Gunners won both league meetings against Burnley last season
Arsenal have won the last seven EPL fixtures against the Clarets
Four of Arsenal’s last five wins against Burnley have been by one goal
Both teams have scored in just one of the last six EPL meetings
Burnley put on a pretty decent show of resilience at Wembley against Tottenham last weekend but was undone late on in a 1-0 loss. That leaves their away record sitting at a poor W1 D2 L6 this season in the Premier League. They have only taken the one point from their last five games away from Turf Moor in the top flight. In that run of five games, Burnley managed to score in just one. In total they have only come up with the six goals on their EPL travels this term. They have conceded an average of exactly two goals per game away from home
Burnley have won just one of their last ten games (D2 L7) in the EPL and are starting the weekend in the drop zone. There has been a big trend of half-time results with them away from home, as Burnley have been level after 45 minutes in six of their nine away games. They have conceded 12 of their 18 away goals in the second period of matches. Just once this season have they opened the scoring in an away game. Fulham are the only side to have shipped more goals than the Clarets have done this term. Only three teams have earned fewer away points than Burnley have in the top flight this term
The Gunners have produced good enough home form to get a win here. That loss against Southampton probably will have shaken complacency out of them. The appeal is in backing the home win to nil.

Spurs have recovered well in their couple of games since their defeat against Arsenal in the North London derby. It’s already been a good week having qualified from their Champions League group. Burnley are struggling in the EPL this season but managed to snap a long winless streak last weekend. Read our Tottenham v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
Spurs claimed another good win for the season last weekend as they picked up a 2-0 away victory over Leicester. That is back to back league wins for them after their loss to Arsenal in the North London derby. Tottenham have taken a good W6 L2 record in their last eight league games. They haven’t been involved in a single drawn game in the EPL this season. Their home form is W4 L2 in six games at Wembley and in their last one there they earned a comfortable 3-1 win over Southampton. Spurs have scored 11 goals at home this term, conceding six and 67% of their home games have produced at least three goals.
Surprisingly Spurs only have one home clean sheet this season and both teams have scored in 67% of Tottenham’s home fixtures. They have scored in each of their last six league games and have bagged at least two goals in each of their last four. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last three at home though and Spurs have been winning at half-time in four of their six home games (L2). On the two occasions that they were tailing at home at the end of the first half, they lost (against Liverpool and Man City). Spurs have the fourth-best defensive record this season while only four teams have scored more goals than Spurs.
Burnley held out for a 1-1 at Spurs last season in the league
Spurs though have won three of the last four meetings with the Clarets
Both teams have scored in just two of the last five
Spurs are W4 D1 in their five previous EPL home games against Burnley
The long wait to end their winless streak is over for the Clarets. They took a 1-0 win at home against Brighton last weekend. That snapped a run of eight games without a win in the EPL for them. Their away form for the season reads W1 D2 L5 and they have only earned the one point from their last four out on their travels. They have failed to score in three of their last four away from Turf Moor so things aren’t reading too well for them. They have tallied just the six away goals all season long.
Burnley have conceded at over two goals per game on average in their away games and eleven of their seventeen away goals conceded have come after the halftime break. Because of their poor defence this season, 38% of their away games have gone over 3.5 goals. They have bagged a clean sheet in a quarter of their away games while they have failed to score in 62% of their road fixtures. Six of Burnley’s ten defeats in the EPL this season have been by a margin of two goals. Fulham are the only side to have conceded more league goals than Burnley so far this season.
* (betting odds taken from December 11th, 2018 at 9:40 pm)
Tottenham to win to nil should be a decent proposition for this one. We are going to predict under 2.5 goals though as the Lilywhites put in a heavy shift in midweek at the Nou Camp against Barcelona.

This should be an interesting clash at Turf Moor. Things just haven’t been happening for the Clarets so far this term and haven’t been able to build up a head of steam on home soil. The Seagulls have had a really good season, picking up some great points to not be sitting with any relegation concerns at the moment. Read our Burnley v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
The Clarets suffered another defeat as they blew a lead at home against Liverpool on Wednesday to suffer a 3-1 reverse. That was Burnley’s third league defeat on the bounce now. In total, they have produced only the two points in their last seven league games and the Clarets have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their last seven. Their home form is just W1 D1 L5 at Turf Moor this season. They have lost their last three league games at Turf Moor and have gone without a win in four there. Burnley have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home games
In total they have produced 8 goals at home this term, conceding 15 and their defence has been their big downfall this season. 71% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals so far this term and actually, 57% of games at Tuf Moor have seen at least four goals. A lot of that has been down to how poor Burnley’s defence has been. They only have the one home clean sheet this season and they have the worst home record in this season’s top flight. Only Fulham have conceded more league goals than Burnley have this season overall.
There were back to back 0-0 draws between them last season
Each of the last five meetings have ended in a draw
The last three meetings have Turf Moor have been draws
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
Burnley are winless in four against Brighton at home (D3 L1)
Brighton picked up three points in midweek as they took down Crystal Palace 3-1 at the Amex. That is back to back league wins for Brighton now and they well away from the drop zone. They also managed to take a win in their last away game, a 2-1 victory out at Huddersfield in a very good result for them. Away from home, this season in the top flight Brighton have posted a W2 D1 L5 record so far. They have come up with seven away goals, conceding 13 in total. One huge positive for Brighton is that they have scored in each of their last eight league games home and away combined.
The Seagulls haven’t managed to take a clean sheet in any of their last five games though and 50% of their away games have ended under 2.5 goals. Their last three games on the road have each produced at least three goals. In total, Brighton have come up with just the one away clean sheet and they have actually conceded in both halves of 62% of their away games. Four times this season on their travels in the top flight, Brighton have been losing at half time. A good three points in this one would see them strengthen their position in the top half of the table.
The Clarets haven’t been able to hold themselves together well, but they have home advantage. Our prediction is to stick with the recent trend of drawn matches in meetings between the two. The outright draw is the top pick.

They left it late but Liverpool won once again on the weekend as they sunk rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby in dramatic fashion. The three points saw them keep pace with leaders Manchester City. Burnley suffered their fifth defeat in six league games as they fell to Crystal Palace.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:18 p.m.)
Burnley went down 2-0 on the road at Crystal Palace on the weekend, which saw their miserable slump continue. That leaves the Clarets with only the two points in their last seven league outings. They are just W1 D1 L4 at home and are rooted in the Premier League drop zone. The Clarets have suffered back to back home defeats in the league and have gone winless in three in their own backyard. Burnley have just the one goal in their last three league home games. Both teams not to score is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). No-one has earned fewer home points than Burnley this season in the EPL.
Burnley have faced two of the current top three this season (Chelsea and Man City) and have lost both of those games without getting on the scoresheet. In total, they have managed just seven home goals and of those home goals, 71% of them have been in the first half of matches. The Clarets have conceded an average of two goals per game on home soil this term, picking up just the one clean sheet along the way. Burnley have been trailing at the half time break in three of their six home fixtures. A Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/full-time option is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). The Clarets have the worst home record of all sides in the top flight currently
Liverpool won 2-1 at Turf Moor last season
The Reds are on a three-match unbeaten streak against Burnley (W2 D1)
Liverpool are W6 D1 L1 in eight previous EPL games against the Clarets
Both teams have scored in just three of the last nine
Liverpool banked a win against Everton in the Merseyside derby and it couldn’t have been much more dramatic, as they took their goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time. It was another big pressure test for them which they passed to keep their unbeaten form for the season going. Out on the road in the top flight this season Liverpool have come up with a very good W5 D2 L0 record. In their last game away from Anfield they picked up a 3-0 win at Watford. They have taken three straight clean sheets as well now in the league (home and away combined). Liverpool to win to nil is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm)
Liverpool have conceded just four away goals all season, scoring 12 of their own. Of the goals that they have conceded on the road, three of them have been after the half time break. Less than half of their away games this season have made it to at least three goals. So under 2.5 goals is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). They have found the back of the net in each of their last six league games. They have been leading at halftime in four of their seven road games. After their clean sheet on the weekend, they now have the best defensive record in the top flight. Only Spurs have a better away record than Liverpool this term.
Liverpool can go and strike a win even if they have not been clicking as an attacking unit during the last week. The defence of Burnley is at sixes and sevens and will likely give up chances to the visitors. Away win.

It may not be the highlight match of Saturday but this clash at Selhurst Park is going to be all so important in terms of the relegation picture. Palace and the Clarets are level on nine points and both sat just above the drop zone heading into the weekend. There is a big chance for one of them to create themselves a little bit of a buffer. Read our Crystal Palace v Burnley betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 11/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
Crystal Palace earned themselves a great point in a 0-0 draw away at Manchester United on the weekend. That was somewhat of a surprising result as they had not taken a clean sheet in six before that game. Back at Selhurst Park, they are still looking for their first home win of the Premier League season, going just D2 L4 in their six there so far. In those six home games, Crystal Palace have scored just the two goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). The Eagles have shipped eight goals in their six home games, earning a clean sheet in 17% of home games.
They have failed to score in 83% of their league home games, which tallies up to them having scored in just one of six. Of the eight goals they have conceded at home, seven of them have been in the second half. They have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last three at home in the EPL. Both teams NOT to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). Palace have failed to win any of their last eight league games home and away now. Four of their six home games in the league this season have been level at halftime for Crystal Palace v Burnley betting tips the half-time draw appeals.
Palace won this corresponding fixture 1-0 last season
Three of the last four meetings have ended in a home win
From six previous EPL meetings, Burnley are W3 D2 L1 against Palace
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings
Palace are W3 D2 L1 in their last six home games against the Clarets
Burnley suffered a 2-1 home loss against Newcastle on Monday evening in what was a huge blow for them at Turf Moor. It leaves them having earned just the one point in their last five league outings and the pressure is mounting. Their defence has been all over the place having conceded fifteen goals in five games. Only Fulham have shipped more goals than Burnley have done in this season’s top flight. Their form out on the road this season is W1 D2 L4 and they are just D1 L2 in their last three away from Turf Moor. Burnley have also been struggling in front of goal with six away goals only and they have failed to score in 57% of their away games.
The shortest-priced correct score option is a Palace 1-0 at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). Of their away games this season 43% of them have ended up over 4.5 goals and that is down to their defensive problems. They have conceded a total of nine goals in their last three away games. Two-thirds of their away goals conceded have been after the halftime break. The halftime draw is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). Burnley have one clean sheet in their last seven league outings and they have scored first in just one of their seven road games this season. The Clarets have not been winning at the halftime break in an away game this term.
There has to be a big opportunity on home soil for Crystal Palace here to lend themselves a much-needed victory. Burnley’s defence has been awful lately and even though Palace are struggling in front of goal, they can find a way to nick this. Home win.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 24th, 2018 at 9:15 p.m.)
Burnley earned a 0-0 draw at Leicester in their last game which leaves The Clarets without a win in any of their last five league games now (D2 L3). So they are struggling for some form and this is a big game for them. At Turf Moor so far this season they are only W1 D1 L3, a long way short of the brilliant home form which they produced last term. Their lone home win game against Bournemouth on September 22nd. In total across their five home games this season, the Clarets have tallied up the six goals. They have conceded an average of two goals per game at home this season in the league.
Surprisingly, because of some really poor defensive displays, 60% of their fixtures at Turf Moor have actually gone above 3.5 goals. They have conceded a hefty total of 13 goals in their last four league games and that’s with their 0-0 draw at Leicester included. The Clarets have scored in just one of their last four league games. Both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:27 pm). They were 13 points better off at this stage of last season than they are at the moment. Only two sides, Cardiff and Fulham have shipped more goals than Burnley have done this season.
Burnley earned a 1-0 win in last season’s corresponding fixture
In the four previous EPL Meetings, Burnley are W1 D3 against Newcastle
Both teams have scored in three of the four previous EPL meetings
Out of nowhere, the Magpies seem to have found their wings as they earned back to back Premier League draws. The most recent was a 2-1 success over Bournemouth. That leaves them unbeaten in three games actually with a seven-point haul from those games. It has been a big improvement from them as they are clawing themselves away from the drop zone. Newcastle have also earned a clean sheet in two of their last three games. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:27 pm)
Despite their upturn in form, they are still looking for their first away win of the season, having gone D3 L2 from their five away from St James’ Park. Across those five away games, Newcastle has netted just the three goals. They have failed to score in 60% of their away games while at the same time having collected a clean sheet in 60% of their away games. All of their away goals have been scored in the second half of away games this season, having been level at the break in four of their five on the road. The halftime draw is at even money* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:27 pm). Only Huddersfield and Crystal Palace have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle have managed this term
The draw looks to have the most appeal in this fixture and that is simply because this looks like a game that neither will want to lose. Newcastle don’t have form on the road and Burnley haven’t been great at Turf Moor. Draw.

The Foxes bagged themselves a win last weekend out at Cardiff in their first game since the big tragedy which befell the club. That leaves them up in mid-table.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
The Foxes came out on top in a 1-0 win at Cardiff last weekend. That moved them on to a W5 D1 L5 record for the season. The Foxes are W2 D1 L2 this season in the top flight and 60% of their games have gone over 2.5 goals. This one to go the same way is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). The Foxes have produced eight goals in their five home games this season in the top flight. There has been just the one home clean sheet from Leicester this term and none of those have come in their last four at the King Power. As a huge positive Leicester have a goal in all of their home this season.
The anytime goalscorer market favourite is Jamie Vardy at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). He is without a goal in any of Leicester’s last four though. The Foxes have produced a goal in each and every one of their league outings this season. Of the goals which Leicester have conceded on home soil this season, 83% of them have come in the first half of games. The half time draw could well appeal in the game as Leicester have only been leading on home soil at the half time break once this season.

Each of the last four games between them have ended in a home win
From the six previous EPL meetings, Leicester are W3 D1 L2 ahead

The Clarets have been going through a rough spell as their defence keeps shipping goals. They are on a three-match losing streak at the moment in the top flight following a 4-2 loss out at West Ham last weekend. That was the third match in a row in which they had conceded at least four goals as well. That’s a total of thirteen goals in their last three games which they have conceded. As they did at least get on the scoresheet last weekend and both teams to score may be worth a look at even money odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
Burnley have won just once on their travels this season is W1 D1 L4 record away from Turf Moor. They have yet to earn a clean sheet on their travels and in total, they have conceded fifteen goals in their five games. That’s an average of 2.5 goals per game against them on their travels. 67% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Ten of the fifteen goals which they have conceded away from home this season have cropped up in the second half of their games. In none of their away games this season have Burnley been leading at half time, but they have been level in four of the six. The half time draw is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
Burnley are looking more and more vulnerable at the back which may not bode well for them this weekend. It’s a difficult time for Leicester at the moment, but they can dig deep and get another three points on the board.

West Ham need a bit of a lift after playing out a draw with ten men against Leicester last weekend to leave them without a win in three. They may fancy their chances on home soil against a Burnley side whose defence has been decimated in their last two league outings. Can the Irons expose the visitors? Read our West Ham v Burnley betting tips for more.
West Ham 8/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 6:23 p.m.)
West Ham had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Leicester last weekend after going down to ten men in the first half. Mark Noble was the one sent off so will be serving a ban. Overall though West Ham played a very good defensive display and didn’t crumble under the pressure. Still, that is just one point in their last three games now for West Ham. Their home record for the Premier League season is W1 D1 L3 each defeat in that sequence being by a one-goal margin. They have come up with just four home goals all season so under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm)
Less than half of their home games (40%) have made it above the goal line. West Ham have actually only scored in one for their last four games on home soil, but that was in a tremendous 3-1 win over Manchester United. Overall home and away, they have have been having defensive problems with just one clean sheet to their name. Both teams to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm).
80% of the home goals that the Hammers have conceded this season in the league have been after the half time break in fixtures. In three of their last four games against Burnley at home, West Ham have produced exactly one goal in each. If you look a little deeper then you will see that they have won two of their last three home games against the Clarets by a 1-0 scoreline. Taking that into consideration then, a West Ham 1-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm).
West Ham managed just one point against Burnley last season
The Hammers are W4 D1 L1 against the Clarets in the last six league clashes
West Ham have won two of their last three at home against Burnley 1-0
The last three between them in London have ended under 2.5 goals
Burnley have lost three of their four (W1) previous EPL visits to West Ham
It has been a total of nine goals which Burnley have conceded in their last two games, albeit tough fixtures against Manchester City and Chelsea. But still, that is a big defensive collapse from Sean Dyche’s men. They failed to score in either of those as well. Out on the road in the top flight this season Burnley have come up with a W1 D1 L3 record and have found the back of the net in just two of those.
Their tally of goals away from Turf Moor is just four, while they have conceded an average of over two goals per away game. Seven of the eleven goals that they have conceded away from home have been in the second half of matches and they themselves have only managed to open the scoring once on their travels.
Sam Vokes has scored two of Burnley’s last three league goals. The Clearest have scored in just one of their last three trips to West Ham and so the outlook doesn’t look too bright for them to be honest. Burnley have conceded at least one goal in each of their last four away games
West Ham showed a lot of character last weekend to earn their point against Leicester and they can take a step forward and bank three points here. Burnley’s defence has been shredded in their last two games. They are there for the taking. Home win.

Burnley were starting to put some much better form together until their unbeaten streak came crashing down in a visit to the Etihad to face Man City last weekend. Chelsea pay a visit to Turf Moor this weekend and the Blues will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to the new season and to keep up the pressure on Liverpool and Man City at the top. Read our Burnley v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 26th, 2018 at 1:21 p.m.)
Burnley had put together a three-match unbeaten streak (W2 D1) before losing heavily at Manchester City last weekend. That has left them with a W2 D2 L5 overall record this season in the Premier League. They have lost four of their five games this season against sides currently sitting in the top half of the table which could be telling ahead of the weekend. At Turf Moor Burnley are W1 D1 L2 for the season and are unbeaten in their last two on home soil.
Three of Burnley’s last four league games have seen at least three goals. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm). The Clarets though have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their nine league fixtures this season. But they have scored consistently against Chelsea in the recent Premier League head to head so both teams to score is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm).
The Clarets will be without Aaron Lennon because of injury. So that is a bit of pace lost. Four of the six home games they have scored this season have been in the first half of matches. They have opened the scoring in half of their home games. To their credit, they have actually only been losing at half time one in the Premier League at Turf Moor this term (W2 D1). So the half time draw at least may offer a little bit of appeal on the fixture.
There was an away win for each in last season’s meetings
Both teams have scored in the four previous EPL meetings at Turf Moor
Chelsea are W5 D2 L1 in eight previous EPL games against Burnley
Six of the previous 8 EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Chelsea are W3 D1 in four EPL visits to Turf Moor
Chelsea just about managed to keep their undefeated season going as Ross Barkley popped up with a dramatic late equaliser at home against Manchester United last weekend. Ross Barkley has scored in back to back league games for the Blues and is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer option* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm)* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm)
The Blues have come up with at least two goals in seven of their nine league games this season and in three of their four road games. A Chelsea 2-1 correct score option is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm). They have a bit of an injury doubt over Premier League top scorer Eden Hazard. At the time of writing though he is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm).
The Blues have conceded just the one away goal this season and despite that good defensive return, 75% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. The Blues have produced 62% of their away goals in the second half of matches this season. Chelsea to win and both teams to score is at 9/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm). Can they bank more points to keep the pressure on at the top?
Chelsea have shown such fine form this season and they are just on the prowl for goals. They are fluent and carry a big attacking threat and it should prove to be too much for the hosts. We are looking at Chelsea to win & both teams to score.

Manchester City 1/14
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
League leaders Manchester City will be looking to extend their winning form on home soil in the Premier League this season. They have won all four at the Etihad so far, scoring a total of thirteen in those four. So that’s a good average output and a Manchester City 2-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). That gives them a good comfortable return after the international break. Manchester City have now won twenty of their last twenty-three (D2 L1) home games in the Premier League.
Raheem Sterling had a great game for England in their win over Spain on Monday and so his spirits should be high. He is at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). With the Citizens having collected a clean sheet in each of their last four games in the top flight, the natural temptation for Manchester City v Burnley betting tips is to back a home win to nil. City have not conceded a second-half goal at home this season and another decent proposition would be to back a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager.
After picking up one point in their opening five games of the season, the Clarets were turning the corner well with a W2 D1 record in their three games before the international break. That gave them a great lift and they scored seven goals in those three games. They have a tough couple of games to get through now as they will face Chelsea after having met the Citizens. Just because the Clarets may not see too much of the ball both teams NOT to score is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).
Away from Turf Moor, this season Burnley are W1 D1 L2 so far and they have given up a total of six goals and have failed to score in two for their four road games. In total home and away, they have only the two clean sheets this season. The Clarets have been at 0-0 at half time in three of their four away games this season. We don’t see that being a very likely outcome in this one. Manchester City to win to nil is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).
Manchester City collected a 3-0 win over Burnley in last season’s corresponding fixture. They also took a 4-1 home win over the Clarets in the FA Cup. City are W2 D2 in their four previous Premier League home games against Burnley but have won the last two. From the previous eight Premier League meetings between the two clubs, Manchester City are W4 D3 L1 against Burnley.
Manchester City are running so well at home and have won their last two league games there to nil. We are going to suggest riding that trend and backing Manchester City to win to nil in this fixture.
