PREDICTION
Not many people will have had this clash between Arsenal and Burnley as one where sixth place is at stake. Whether that says more about the under-achievement of the former or the over-achievement of the latter is something that can be argued depending on who you support.

For Arsenal, they are still getting used to the news that there will be no Arsene Wenger next season while Burnley are already dreaming of the Europa League adventures that they will soon be embarking on.

Last weekend, the Gunners travelled to Old Trafford to face Manchester United with a much-changed side and were perhaps unfortunate to have not earned a point as Jose Mourinho got the better of his old adversary one last time.

Meanwhile, Burnley’s defence was at its best as they held Brighton to a 0-0 draw at Turf Moor. It is that defensive unit that has been the bedrock of the Clarets’ campaign and one that has secured them at least a top-seven finish.

That could become top six should they manage to outgun Arsenal in the next couple of weeks. That might just be a step too far for Sean Dyche’s side but even if they suffer defeat on Sunday, they will have few complaints.
