Arsenal Injury Round Up – Ramsey, Coquelin & Giroud

We are on quite a run of form, and our next stop up ahead is Burnley on Sunday. The Clarets are currently placed 13th on the table, and all the money is expected to be on an away win in the game.

The Clarets defeated Watford in their last league form, but we are in some red-hot form at the moment, and I am feeling confident going into this game.

According to the bookmakers, we are overwhelming favourites to pick up three points at Turf Moor.

Bet365 has us at 2/5 to win the game while a draw will get you 54/13 odds at 888sport. A home win is the least likely result and is available at 9/1 at the same site.

However, we can’t take the Clarets as one slip can destroy all the momentum we have built up recently. One should not forget that Clarets have already Liverpool at their home this season.

On the injury front, the boss provided some good news today. Francis Coquelin has not suffered any serious injury, and he should be available following the international break.

‘I think Coquelin is looking much better than we expected, he had a test today but I still think he will be short for Sunday,’ the Arsenal manager said.

‘He is keen to start again with the session of today, but we have to be cautious as well.

‘We have plenty of games coming up, but for us now we work in cycles of three. Week by week we play three games.’

Olivier Giroud is still nursing a toe injury while midfielder Aaron Ramsey has also been backed to return following the break.

“Aaron Ramsey should be available after the International break. Giroud will be out.”

Meanwhile, the hosts will miss their main striker Andre Gray due to a suspension.

Burnley are a resolute team, but if we can keep our form from recent weeks, then I think it shouldn’t be a problem for us in getting another three points on the table on Sunday.

Some keys stats ahead of the game

We have never lost to Burnley in Premier League and have won five and drawn one of the last six meetings between the two sides.

We are undefeated in all competitions since our opening-day defeat to Liverpool.

The Clarets have managed only one game out of their last five in all competitions.

Prediction:

Burnley’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Heaton; Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward; Arfield, Defour, Hendrick, Boyd; Bamford, Vokes

Arsenal’s Predicted Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Cazorla, Xhaka; Iwobi, Ozil, Walcott; Perez

Prediction: We have looked really threatening going forward in recent games while Burnley have struggled to score goals this season. Hence, I am backing us repeat the scoreline from Chelsea’s game and defeat the Clarets 3-0.
