Arsenal Form & Team News 

Arsenal put on an impressive performance away at Newcastle in their opening game of the season. The Gooners won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Pierre Aubameyang midway through the second half of the match. 

Emery's team have a number of injury worries heading into the encounter. New signing Nicolas Pepe is still getting to full fitness and Emery is likely to reward him with a cameo, just as he did at St James' Park. Alexander Lacazette was on the bench for the game at Newcastle, and it remains to be seen whether he will be fully fit for Saturday's match. 

The situation surrounding Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac is still unclear. The two men were not allowed to travel to the game on Sunday due to safety concerns and the club is yet to confirm whether or not they will be playing this weekend. 

Emery has a long list of injuries that he still needs to contend with and Arsenal fans are going to have wait to see new signing Keiran Tierney. The former Celtic star is recovering from a double hernia operation.

Burnley FC Form & Team News 

Burnley shocked the Premier League this Saturday with what was one of the most impressive performances of the opening weekend. The Clarets recorded a comfortable 3-0 against a strong Southampton side. 

Burnley have no new injury worries heading to the game, though, they will assess the condition of Robbie Brady, who missed their opening fixture against Southampton on Saturday. 

Ashley Barnes grabbed two goals for Sean Dyche's side this weekend and he will no doubt lead the line for the Lancashire club once again on Saturday. 

Arsenal vs Burnley Analysis - Arsenal to continue to win

Burnley made the headlines with their victory this weekend but they will not be feeling overly positive heading to The Emirates this weekend. 

Arsenal looked comfortable against Newcastle and that was with several key faces missing from their team.  Emery will want to build on his club's impressive home record from last campaign. The team only lost twice at home in the Premier League last season, and one of those was against Manchester City. 

Aubameyang was a constant threat for The Gooners away at Newcastle and he will be back in the hunt for goals at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon. If Lacazette is also fully fit, then Burnley will have to deal with one of the deadliest striking duos in the Premier League.

Arsenal vs Burnley Tips - Aubameyang to keep scoring 

Arsenal are currently valued at just 1.25 to win the match with bet365, which doesn't present punters with that much value. However, a comfortable 2-0 victory for the home side does present excellent value at 7.00 with bet365. 

Aubameyang is never far from the score sheet. The striker is at 1.66 in the anytime goalscorer market, and 3.75 to be the first goalscorer. The former Dortmund striker grabbed an astonishing 33 goals in all competitions for Unai Emery's team last summer and is one of the favourites to win the division's golden boot.
