Match Preview : Burnley vs Arsenal

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

Arsenal are in fine form and want to enter the international break on a high – even Theo Walcott is now playing well.

Burnley secured a good 2-0 victory over Watford, which ended a run of four matches without a win.

Arsenal have actually struggled away to Burnley so don’t necessarily expect a walk over on Sunday.

They haven’t managed to score more than one goal in any of their last three matches at Turf Moor, but should have enough this weekend.

Burnley – Andre Gray serves the second of his four-match suspension against Arsenal, but Sean Dyche has no reason to change his side after they beat Watford 2-0 last time out.

Match Preview : Tottenham vs Manchester City

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

This fixture sees second host first in the big match of the weekend before the international break. The last 10 meetings between the sides have seen 44 goals shared.

Tottenham have won the last two matches against City but the away side edge the head-to-head record overall in that period. There have been no draws in the last 10 encounters.

Tottenham have won each of their last four matches, while City are the only team left with a 100% record in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s side were made to work very hard for their 3-3 draw against Celtic in midweek, in which they went behind three times.

Brendan Rodgers’ showed how you can get at this City side and Tottenham should have no problems copying it with their high-pressing style of play.

This is arguably the biggest test of Guardiola’s time in England and this may be a hurdle too far for his team at this stage in the season. Naijabet
