Burnley v Arsenal Betting Tips

Burnley v Arsenal – Live on BBC 1, k/o 14:00pm

Burnley are looking to cause a cup upset and beat Arsenal who are 30 league places ahead of them. The clarets go into the game with one win in eight and on the back of a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Blackpool. This is in contrast to the Gunners who go into the game with seven victories out of eight. Arsenal are starting to see the finishing ability of Eduardo with three in his last two games so Betterbet offering 4/1 first goal scorer seems good value. Punters who like taking an outside chance may want to take advantage of the fact that Arsenal have conceded first in 7 Premiership matches and back Burnley’s top goalscorer Andy Gray to score first at 10/1 (VC bet).

Burnley are without 1995 FA Cup winner David Unsworth, who is suspended.

Clarke Carlisle (hamstring) is out for up to four weeks, Alan Mahon is a doubt with a groin strain but Joey Gudjonsson and John Spicer return after bans.

Goalkeeper Jens Lehmann looks set for a rare start for Arsenal, William Gallas and Gael Clichy may be rested and Nicklas Bendtner returns after a ban.

Emmanuel Adebayor (hamstring) may miss out, while Robin van Persie (muscule) is not quite back to match fitness.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on the Burnley v Arsenal game if Theo Walcott scores at anytime in this match.
