Arsenal vs Burnley Prediction: Premier League Match on 23.01.2022

Two teams that have both requested recent fixtures in the Premier League to be called off meet on Sunday afternoon, as Burnley could play just their second league game in 2022 at the Emirates. Both sides desperately need the points, with Arsenal chasing Champions League places and the Clarets looking to stay in the top flight.

Premier League Preview

Arsenal have been a controversial talking point in the Premier League over the past seven days, as they requested for their North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur to be called off last weekend. However, since that request was accepted by the Premier League, the Gunners have allowed a further two first team players to leave the club.

Like Burnley, Arsenal have played just once in the Premier League this calendar year. That fixture came on New Year’s Day against Manchester City, as they put in a strong effort but were ultimately beaten by Manchester City. Since then, Arsenal have failed to win their previous two fixtures in all competitions.

They were knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round by Nottingham Forest, before playing out a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final clash against Liverpool.

Burnley have played just two Premier League fixtures since the middle of December. They have seen four of their previous six league games called off for either COVID, AFCON or injury issues. Their last league fixture came on January 2nd, as they were beaten away from home by Leeds United.

That defeat stretched their winless record in the Premier League to seven games, while they were also beaten in the third round of the FA Cup by Huddersfield Town a couple of weeks ago.

Things are looking bleak for the Clarets this season, as they are three points from safety, and currently bottom of the league standings. However, due to cancellations, they have at least three games in hand over the sides directly above them in the league standings.

Arsenal vs Burnley Head to Head

Burnley have won once on their last three visits to the Emirates. That victory came on their last trip to North London in December 2020, as they won 1-0. Two of the previous four matches between the sides have also ended in draws, while Arsenal picked up a first win against Burnley in three earlier this season.

Arsenal vs Burnley Prediction

Burnley need to bring in some players in the January transfer window if they are to stay in the division this term. Arsenal has the better quality, and we fully expect them to get the win in this fixture on Sunday afternoon.
