Great campaign that Burnley does so far in the biggest club championship in the world. Even by the size of the club the team’s achievement is worthy of even more note.
The team occupies the seventh place with 22 points. A win against Arsenal could put Burnley in the Champions League qualifying zone.
But more than that the team simply beat Chelsea away from home and drew with Tottenham and Liverpool. Curiously the team has had more difficulties against the Premier’s small ones than the big ones.
Acting at home the team won 3 games, drew another 2 and lost one with 5 goals scored and 2 conceded.

Arsenal looks a bit miserly a few seasons ago. With Wenger always questioned but always kept in charge of the club Arsenal can not be firm in an increasingly tough and competitive league.
This year has not been different. Arsenal are out of the Champions League and also the Europa League.
The team has the same 22 points as Burnley and is in sixth place just because of the tiebreaker criteria.
Prognosis Burnley vs. Arsenal:
Away from home the Arsenal campaign does not resemble that of a major Premier club. The team adds a win, a draw and 4 losses with 7 goals scored and 12 conceded.
Of course the shirt weighs. But in the ball Arsenal has not justified this type of odds mainly against a team as competitive as Burnley.
