Arsenal’s last six in review – Part 2 0

Posted on May 16, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Leicester 3-0 Arsenal

Arsenal were just flat, and it was clear to see their passion for the top four race was all but gone. The players were tired, the fans were fed up, and Emery just didn’t have an answer to it. Brendan Rodgers’ momentum since arriving at Leicester quite clearly played a pretty significant role in this game, because the Foxes were just firing on all cylinders. Arsenal just couldn’t keep up with them in any way, shape or form, and that’s a little bit embarrassing when you think about where these two sides were a decade or so ago.

Aubameyang joint-winner of the Premier League Golden Boot 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal defeated Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor in the Premier League. In the end, the result did not matter, as the Gunners still finished fifth-place in the table, a point behind north London rivals Tottenham.

However, one fact that did matter in the clash in Lancashire was that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace. The double saw the former Dortmund star finished as the joint-top scorer in the Premier League this season with Liverpool pair Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah on 22 league goals for the season. It is a great honour to win the Golden Boot, but it will come as little surprise to Arsenal fans.

The Premier League season has officially come to an end, and aside from the Europa League final in a few short weeks, Arsenal’s campaign is over. It’s been a season of ups and downs and sometimes that hasn’t always been in equal measure, but today, we aren’t going to talk about that (at least, not in this post). Instead we’re going to focus on Arsenal’s final game of the season yesterday, in which they were able to pick up one final win in order to secure fifth place ahead of Manchester United.

On Sunday afternoon, Burnley host Arsenal at Turf Moor in the final game of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Burnley have endured a rollercoaster of a campaign. Sean Dyche’s team struggled for results at the beginning of the season, but have since moved away from the relegation zone and secured safety with relative comfort.

The Clarets have failed to win in their last three top-flight games, last time out suffering a 2-0 defeat at in-form Everton. The defeat followed on from a draw at Chelsea and a home defeat by Manchester City, so their recent fixtures have been difficult.

The reverse fixtures – Part 2 0

Arsenal 1-1 Wolves

Arsenal were fortunate to come away with anything from this game, which kind of tells you all that you need to know about how good Wolverhampton Wanderers have been this season. They’ve taken every single game in their stride, putting on a football clinic against the big boys in the process.

Arsenal 3-1 Leicester

Despite going behind in this one it always felt like Arsenal were going to score as the game went on, and that’s what happened. They just seem to be able to take over at the Emirates in ways that they can’t do away from home, which is something they need to watch out for when they travel to the King Power for the reverse fixture.

The end of the season is almost upon us, and there’s still a lot left to be resolved – especially for Arsenal. In addition to their Europa League quarter final which is coming up sooner than most of us realise, they’re also in a great position to finish in the top four of the Premier League. As we all know that’ll mean that they enter the UEFA Champions League once again, which many considered to be the end goal for Unai Emery in his first season in charge.

Crystal Palace (H)

The loss against Brighton seems to have taken the wind out of Crystal Palace, and at the worst possible time. This should be a guaranteed three points for the Gunners and while we may not like saying that, it’s just the truth. They’re a much better football team than Crystal Palace, and they should be winning comfortably here.

Arsenal 3-1 Burnley: Observations 0

Arsenal have beaten Burnley by 3-1 in the 18th round of the 2018/19 Premier League season, courtesy of goals from Pierre-Emerick Auubameyang (14′, 48′), and Alex Iwobi (90′). The solitary strike for the visitors was the work of Ashley Barnes (63′). The Gunners are still in fifth place, but now they’ve equaled Chelsea’s point tally as the Blues suffered defeat at home to Leicester City.

But the result aside for a moment, there were some interesting things to take from this game. Let’s take a look.

Arsenal host Burnley in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off, as the Gunners attempt to recover from two straight defeats.

Last time out Arsenal suffered a 2-0 home defeat against Tottenham in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup. The defeat followed a 3-2 league defeat against Southampton last weekend.

The run has rather dented the Gunners positive momentum under Spanish boss Unai Emery. However, the team from north London will be determined to end the losing run as soon as possible.

As the dust settles on Wednesday night’s 2-0 defeat against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup quarter-final, there is little time to waste in thinking about the Arsenal’s next encounter. Unai Emery’s side has the chance to bounce in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium. On paper, it looks like an ideal game for the Gunners, but in truth, it may not be so easy.

Burnley’s recent record could be deceptive

Burnley heads to north London on the back of four defeats in their last five Premier League matches. Sean Dyche’s team are in the relegation zone and enduring a nightmare campaign.
