Match Preview

Both teams kicked off their Premier League (PL) campaigns with wins ‘to nil’ and whilst that was just the second such incidence for Arsenal in 27 away league games, a healthy 48.60% of the competitive H2Hs since 1896 have seen just one side, or no side score. With ten straights wins over their visitors, the last three of which saw -1 handicap victories, Arsenal have dominated this match-up in recent times.
Arsenal also bring decent home league form from last term into this contest, when they ranked as the third best home side losing just two games. Last season also saw the ‘Gunners’ score twice as many second-half home goals as first-half ones (28 vs 14), with no team scoring more in the final 15 minutes in those games (14).
Burnley need to be wary of Arsenal’s prowess in the latter stages, as the ‘Clarets’ conceded 12 goals on their league travels last season in the 76th-90th+ minute period – the joint-second highest tally.
In contrasting stats, Burnley registered seven 0-0 half-time PL away scorelines last season, but also saw six of their away days feature both teams scoring before the break. Furthermore, Burnley’s last six PL away victories saw both teams score.
Players to watch: Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in 26 PL games, with the club losing just three of those (W20, D3).
Chris Wood has scored in Burnley’s last three PL away wins – all arrived in the first half.
Stat attack: Last season, Arsenal were one of two home PL sides not to concede in the 15 minutes before half-time.
Over the last two seasons, Burnley haven’t lost away from home if leading at half-time (W6, D1).
Burnley haven’t managed a first-half goal against Arsenal in the last nine PL H2Hs.
This will be the sixth time in history that Arsenal have played their home opener versus Burnley (Arsenal: W2, D2, L1).
