Arsenal v Burnley: Match preview

Fresh from opening day victories, Arsenal and Burnley renew hostilities in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

The Gunners beat Newcastle 1-0 in an uninspiring affair at a rainy St James’ Park in the first match of the season and they will be looking to kick-off a Premier League campaign with two consecutive victories for the first time since 2009-10.

Burnley began the Premier League season with an unexpected 3-0 win over Southampton, but they have lost their last 10 matches against Arsenal in all competitions in a run stretching back to March 2010.

The Clarets will be especially wary of marksman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who boasts a remarkable goalscoring record against Burnley.

The Gabon international has scored twice in the last three meetings between the sides, a feat achieved by only Michael Owen against Newcastle United between 1998 and 2001 and Harry Kane against Everton between 2017 and 2018.

With the tantalising prospect of Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and £72m summer signing Nicolas Pepe all lining up on Saturday, Burnley will have to show their renowned defensive mettle to keep the Gunners’ formidable forward trio at bay.

However, history suggests that Burnley’s defensive unit may have their work cut out in North London. The Gunners have won all seven games against Burnley at home, scoring 21 goals and conceding just four.

What’s more, Emery has revealed that Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac could return this weekend after they missed the trip to Newcastle due to security reasons.

With David Luiz, an £8m acquisition from Chelsea on deadline day, and loanee Dani Ceballos also waiting in the wings, Arsenal have options aplenty ahead of their first home game of the campaign.

Emery sprung a selection surprise against Newcastle, with 19-year-olds Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson afforded a starting berth, but it was the experienced hand Aubameyang who secured all three points with a clinical lofted finish over Martin Dubravka.

After latching onto a pinpoint through ball from Ainsley Maitland-Niles, the 30-year-old punished the Magpies’ for a costly momentary lapse in concentration.

Burnley raced out of the blocks after a relatively quiet summer against Southampton at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Dyche said his side have “come back with a real edge” after second-half goals from striker Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson blew Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side away in Lancashire in what was their biggest opening day league victory since 1966.

Burnley failed to press on last season, due in part to their European obligations, but they will be looking to build on their opening day victory and push for a top half finish in their fourth season in the top flight.

Barnes, a £450,000 signing from Brighton in January 2014, is integral to their plans. The Austrian international who has scored 37 goals in 166 appearances for the Clarets has had a stellar 2019.

He has scored 11 goals in the calendar year, one more than Liverpool's Mo Salah and Saturday’s opponent Aubameyang.

Speaking about his star striker, Dyche said: “You learn the game more and more, the older you get, the wiser you get.

“He continues to learn about himself and the game, and that mental resilience grows the more you play at the highest level.

“He is certainly a very effective player, he continues to learn about himself and his game and how he can be effective.”

With a wealth of attacking options on show at the Emirates on Saturday, Burnley’s trip to Arsenal promises to be a thrilling start to the weekend’s Premier League action.

Arsenal v Burnley: The managers

Arsenal boss Emery: “It’s the first match at home this year and we’re looking forward to meeting with our supporters in the Emirates. We’re preparing with big work, we’re enthusiastic for each moment this week to prepare. It’s going to be difficult this year, starting at home against Burnley.

“They’re in a very good moment, they won 3-0 and had an amazing pre-season. They are a strong team with a clear structure. Last year against us they played 3-5-2 and changed, I think they will play 4-4-2.

“They are a team with a good coach, experienced here in England, and in the Premier League they are playing, working, doing a good way. Saturday we need all the best for us individually and collectively.

“Above all we need to impose our gameplan and be confident, be with our supporters, feeling good to try to impose our idea. We have a lot of things to be positive about.”

Burnley boss Dyche: “They are a top side, but we’ve shown before we can take points off the top sides.

“We’ve had decent performances against Arsenal and probably a couple of harsh decisions have gone against us.

“You need the rub of the green and might need a decision. It might be a bit more measured with VAR and you certainly won’t have had the decisions we have had go against us, but when it comes down to it you have to perform.

“We have to look to build on last week, and it’s always about performances with me, if you keep putting performances in, they will pay you back.

“The players have come back clear-minded and with a more powerful edge to their fitness. It’s early yet, but it’s nice to at least see that work get you off to a good start.”

Granit Xhaka (bruised back) will undergo a fitness test ahead of kick-off, while new signing Kieran Tierney, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Dinos Mavropanos are all sidelined.

Chelsea loanee Danny Drinkwater will not be involved for Burnley but Charlie Taylor could feature.

Steven Defour and Robbie Brady have returned to training following calf and rib injuries.
