Paul Ince states his prediction for Burnley v Arsenal
Paul Ince is tipping Arsenal to claim a 3-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League this weekend
Paul Ince is tipping Arsenal to claim a 3-1 victory over Burnley in their Premier League clash at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.
The north London side head into the game looking to build on their impressive 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates in last weekend’s north London derby.
Arsene Wenger’s men are still some way off the pace in the race for the Premier League title, with the Gunners currently 12 points behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games of the season.
The Gunners will be wanting to put themselves in a strong position as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.
And former Manchester United star Ince is fully expecting to see the Gunners claim all three points on Sunday afternoon at Turf Moor.
Ince told the Daily Express: “There’s no doubt that Burnley are playing well and are tough to beat at home, and they deserve respect for that, but I’m enjoying watching Arsenal at the minute.
“They’re really going at teams, and Alexandre Lacazette is a classy player.
“Burnley won’t make it easy for them, but they’ll still win.”
Arsenal are aiming to challenge for the title this season after struggling last term and ending up in fifth place in the table.
Indeed, Arsene Wenger’s men have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
The Gunners did, however, beat Chelsea back in May to win the FA Cup for the third time in four years last season.
