It’s the final game of the season for Premier League clubs and all teams are taking their final places. Here are our best Burnley v Arsenal betting tips. Can Arsenal pull something back? Can they finish the season on a high? Let’s look…
An In-Depth Look at the Game
Burnley have secured their place in the Premier League for another season, despite spending much of the campaign with the threat of relegation hanging over them. They looked for long periods of time like a club who would be involved in an end of season dog fight to avoid the drop but, in the end, they held the likes of Cardiff and Fulham at arm’s length. 11 wins, seven draws and 19 defeats gave the home side a 40-point haul and that’s nine better than The Bluebirds down in 18th. The management will look to strengthen their pool over the course of the summer with the aim of edging their way towards midtable next term.
They battled hard to the line and were seen winning two and drawing one of their last five, before suffering a pair of defeats in their two most recent outings. Manchester City left this venue with a 1-0 win to bring April to a close – Aguero scoring the goal that mattered that day – before Everton blasted their way to three points by beating Burley at Goodison Park last Friday night. Mee knocked the ball into his own net on 17 minutes and things went from bad to worse for the travelling support when Coleman struck a second shortly after. It was a win that kept their Europe League hopes alive, but Burnley came out of the contest with no real positives, managing just one shot on target all evening and 40% of the match possession. The home win is 12/5 at William Hill, a draw 13/5 with the same bookmaker.
Terrible Run of Form
Arsenal have choked in the final weeks of the season and despite entering the home-straight with all to play for in the race for a top-four finish, they have taken just one point from the last dozen that was available to them. A winning run was needed to keep them in the mix, but they couldn’t manage it and fand are furious. Despite a terrible run of form – amongst the worst in the division over the last few weeks, they remain in with a shout of finishing in the top-four and grabbing Champions League football, something everyone connected to the club knows is a must for a team with Arsenal’s operating costs and player budget.
They go into the final game of the season three points behind Tottenham in fourth, meaning they must win on Sunday and see Spurs well beaten if they are to have any chance of grabbing fourth. To make things even more interesting, if Arsenal do snatch fourth at the final opportunity they will do it at the expense of Spurs, ensuring their bitter rivals miss out on the Champions League next season and that would only sweeten the deal. An interesting set-up, but let’s not forget the team needing to win lost three on the bounce recently. They were last seen fighting out a 1-1 draw at home vs lowly Brighton, a real disappointment.
