Clarets to test Gunners


Burnley could cause an upset when they head to the Emirates on Saturday to take on an Arsenal side struggling with defensive issues.

Burnley double chance @ 12/5

The Clarets made an eye-catching start to the 2019-20 Premier League season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Southampton at Turf Moor.

Ashley Barnes proved a handful for Saints as he opened his account for the term with a brace and Burnley look like a side that could finish mid-table this season.

They travel to Arsenal, who edged to a 1-0 win at a woeful Newcastle on the opening weekend, and their defensive problems could hand Burnley a chance to come away with some points.

History suggests Arsenal should win but with a makeshift backline, Barnes and co can’t be disregarded in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.

Norwich to win @ 5/4

Daniel Farke’s Norwich side were handed a tough opening fixture as they fell 4-1 to Liverpool at Anfield but this weekend’s 3pm game at home to Newcastle looks more than winnable.

Norwich looked good in the final third on Merseyside and will undoubtedly want to put on a show for the home fans at Carrow Road.

Teemu Pukki was sharp and, after opening his account in the second half at Anfield, will be full of confidence against a Newcastle defence that looked far from solid in their loss to Arsenal.

Steve Bruce faces a tough task in steering the Magpies clear of relegation this term and Saturday’s game will offer a better insight as to what we can expect from them.

Manchester City to win @ 10/27

Man City laid down a marker with a 5-0 thumping of West Ham last Saturday but they are likely to face a sterner test when Tottenham come to town in Saturday’s late game.

The champions won 18 of 19 league games on home soil last season and are likely to be a formidable force at the Etihad again this time around.

Indeed, they boast an impressive record when Spurs come to town too, having lost just once in the last nine league games against them.

Tottenham are still missing some key players and the absence of Heung-min Son, who is suspended, is a big blow for Mauricio Pochettino.
