Emirates Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Arsenal and Burnley. The Gunners aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newcastle United and coach Unai Emery is likely to field the best possible side this time out. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored the winner against the Magpies, aims to continue where he left last season and we are positive that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.

The Clarets, on the other hand, rolled over Southampton 3-0 in front of home fans in their opener, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we are tempted to put our money on Arsenal, who are eyeing a top-four finish. In each of their last ten meetings in all competitions the Gunners emerged triumphant and we do not believe that Chris Wood and Co. are capable of putting an end to the negative trend.


Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.

Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.

Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.


Born in France to parents of Ivorian descent, Nicolas Pepe became a full Ivory Coast international in 2016. In a symbolic twist of events, Pepe was handed his Ivory Coast debut in a goalless draw against his birth nation France days after receiving his first-ever call-up.

Pepe began his career in the lower leagues in Poitiers in 2012, before moving to Angers a year later. Having proven his qualities in the second-string side, Pepe was instated in Angers’ first team in 2013. Four years later – which included a season-long loan spell at Orleans – Nicolas Pepe was transferred to Lille. Les Dogues beat several sides to the signature of this pacey winger who is no stranger to scoring goals. Quick with his feet, Pepe can be deployed on the right wing and as a centre-forward.

The Ivory Coast international is unpredictable in his movement and not easy to keep an eye on, especially because of his powerful left foot.
