2018 Premier League Matchweek 18: Arsenal vs. Burnley December 20, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, Arsenal will play host in the Premier League Matchweek 18 fixture against Burnley. Game time is set at 12:30PM local time and will be played in London’s Emirates Stadium.

Burnley's manager Sean Dyche is keen on mixing up again his team's formation as they face Arsenal. He let his side switch in a 5-4-1 formation to contain Tottenham throughout the game, a gambit that almost paid off, despite a 0-1 loss in the end. His experiment restricted Tottenham to only three shots on target. He is likely to go for another 5-4-1 formation against Arsenal.

Arsenal's game plan should focus on how to breakdown Burnley. Arsenal's manager Unai Emery expects Burnley will not attack his sides from the onset of the game. Arsenal's leader is also an excellent tactician and there is a possibility to field a 4-4-2 formation.

Under this formation, Arsenal's attacking threat increases and will be too tough for Burnley to handle.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Arsenal as the favorite to win against Burnley on Saturday noon.
