Arsenal must back up North London derby win this weekend at Burnley

Premier League Preview

Arsenal travel north on Sunday to face Burnley, a side they’ve never lost to in the Premier League. Last season saw them come away with a late 1-0 win courtesy of a 93rd-minute goal from Laurent Koscielny. Burnley have won their last three league games and are level on points with Arsenal. So far this season Arsenal have just one win on the road. If you are interested in the latest Premier League predictions then you know what to do.

League leaders Manchester City are away at Huddersfield on Sunday looking to keep their eight-point advantage at the top of the table. Huddersfield have won their last two home games by a single goal, including a 2-1 win over second place Man United. City have won 10 straight games and are still yet to lose those season so far.

Manchester United have a chance to close the gap to the top on Saturday as they face in-form Brighton. The south coast side are unbeaten in their last five games and have moved into the top half. United have lost two of their last five but have won every home game in the league this season so far. Over those six games, they have conceded only once.

Chelsea and Liverpool have each won 19 of their 50 Premier League games against each other and they face off at Anfield again this weekend. Last season this fixture was a 1-1 draw with David Luiz’s goal being cancelled out. Liverpool have won their last three league games and conceded just once at home so far. Chelsea however, have lost only one game on the road in the league this season.

Tottenham host West Brom this weekend, less than a week after the visitors sacked Tony Pulis. Three of the previous four meetings between the two have finished 1-1 but this game last season was a 4-0 win to Spurs. So far this season Spurs have struggled to convincingly beat sides from the bottom half of the table this season. West Brom have not won since August and sit one point above the bottom three.

West Ham have beaten Leicester more times than they have lost but have failed to win since 2014. The pair meet on Friday in London where last season it was a 3-2 win to the away side. Leicester have lost one in their last five and sit 12th after a slow start to the season. West Ham have not won since the end of September, six league games ago. They are in the bottom three at the moment.

The home side has won each of the last three games between Crystal Palace and Stoke and they meet again at Selhurst Park. Stokes 1-0 win at home last season ended a four-game losing run against Palace. The hosts have only five points so far this season, all which have come in their last three home games. Stoke are unbeaten in three and have only failed to score twice in the league this season.

Watford won both games against Newcastle the last time they met in the 2015/16 season and they will be hoping for a repeat performance when they head to Saint James’ Park this weekend. Newcastle have lost the last three league games but are still within sight of the top half. Watford won last weekend ending a run of three straight defeats. They now sit in 8th place and need to start putting a run of good form together if they are to hold out hopes for something more.

Swansea have never beaten Bournemouth in a Premier League game but are in desperate need of points at the moment as they are in the bottom three. Bournemouth won both games last season without conceding and are beginning to turn around their season. After a slow start to the campaign, they have won three of their last four games and are now 13th. Swansea, in contrast, have lost their last four league games.

Southampton versus Everton is a game between two sides in desperate need of points. They have a similar record to each other this season so far having both won three games from their opening games. Southampton sit a point higher in the league courtesy of one more draw but they haven’t won in their last four. Everton are only three points clear of the drop zone and could see that advantage diminish without a convincing performance at the weekend.

After last week’s big win over Tottenham, Arsenal need to follow it up with a win against Burnley. Arsenal are not far off 2nd in the league and if they can continue their good run against a tough Burnley side then they can build momentum ahead of the winter fixtures.
