This game marks 20 years since Arsene Wenger, 66, took the reigns at Arsenal in 1996. Since then, he has led the team to some incredible accomplishments. In 2004, they had an undefeated league season, which hadn’t been done in over 115 years. They even passed Nottingham Forrest’s 42-game unbeaten streak. With 647 wins out of 1129 matches, according to the BBC, Arsene has led the Gunners to six FA Cups and three Premier League titles.
Could this season add another to the growing number? While Manchester City is firmly in the lead of the Premier League, the Gunners are just a few points behind both the Sky Blues and Tottenham. They’ve been on quite the run, putting down FC Basel in the Champions League (2-0) crushing Chelsea (3-0) in a Premier League and ending Nottingham Forrest’s time in the EFL Cup.
Meanwhile, Burley is struggling. Their 2-0 victory over Watford ended a four-game losing streak, but that’s the only good news they’ve had lately. They’re still without striker Andre Gray, 25, who’s serving the remainder of a four-game ban, per Sky Sports.
Arsenal will go into this game without Oliver Giroud, 30, Aaron Ramsey, 25, Per Mertesacker, 32, Danny Welbeck, 25, and Carl Jenkinson, 24. Yikes! Will these injuries give the Clarets a leg-up and end the Gunner’s red-hot streak?
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Will Arsenal keep the good times going and add another win to their tally? Will Burnley get a massive upset and add some life to their Premier League season?
