Our football match prediction:
Despite the fact that key attacker missed Saturday’s football game against Swansea City, Burnley did well to extend their winning run in the Premier League. The Clarets recorded a win in each of their previous three league fixtures and they are after their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the national championship. Sean Dyche’s men are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Arsenal, but preventing the Gunners from scoring is easier said than done. Arsene Wenger’s men proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur and a win over Burnley could see them climb to the Champions League berth. However, seeing that the Clarets have been in a splendid form of late and considering that Sean Dyche’s team are tough to beat at home, we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils at Turf Moor on Matchday 13.

Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since. Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
