2023-24 Premier League: Week 12 – Arsenal vs Burnley

Arsenal and Burnley look to both bounce back from league defeats in a Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium.

Victory would realistically put Arsenal up to second if Tottenham lose in the lunchtime kick-off – unless they can win by six or more goals.

Burnley meanwhile can climb to 17th with a win if Luton lose elsewhere.

Bukayo Saka is a doubt for Arsenal after he was substituted during their Champions League win at home to Sevilla with a knock.

Martin Odegaard (groin), Takehiro Tomiyasu and Eddie Nketiah (both knock) face late fitness tests.

Jurrien Timbers, Emile Smith Rowe (both knee), Thomas Partey (muscle) and Gabriel Jesus (hamstring) remain absent.

Burnley will welcome Josh Cullen back into contention after he served his one-match ban in their defeat to Crystal Palace.

Ameen Al Dakhil (knock) could return but Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) joins Lyle Foster (illness) and Michael Obafemi (hamstring) on the sidelines.


When is Kick-Off?

Arsenal face Burnley at Emirates Stadium in a 3pm GMT kick-off on Saturday 11 November, untelevised live in the UK.


Stat Attack

  • Arsenal have won one of their last five meetings against Burnley (W1, D3, L1).
  • Burnley have claimed four points from their last six visits to Arsenal (W1, D1, L4).
  • In 16 previous Premier League meetings, there has never been consecutive draws between Arsenal and Burnley.
  • William Saliba and Ben White have made more clearances than any other Arsenal player this season in the top-flight, having made 21 clearances apiece.
  • Coming into this matchweek, no team has scored fewer league goals than Burnley who have eight goals in 11 matches this season.



After finding themselves on the end of a difficult league defeat at Newcastle last weekend, Arsenal responded with a clinical midweek win over Sevilla even if they were lacking in the final touch at times, which is their only weak point coming into a game which they should easily win.

Burnley meanwhile were absolutely wasteful at home to Crystal Palace last weekend in spite of some positive attacking play, yet defensive errors once again seemed to be their Achilles heel which is a real concern coming into a difficult game like this.

Their ‘underdog’ status in this game however should take some pressure off the Clarets but after seeing Arsenal comfortably hammer Sheffield Utd in their last league game at home, Burnley will probably take a similar repeat of last weekend but with less attacking opportunities.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Burnley

Result: Arsenal 3-1 Burnley
