My Predicted Scoreline :
Arsenal 3-0 Burnley
The Londoners have already taken the lead from a goal by Aubamayeng and are looking confident, something that has been missing in recent times and could secure a win, if they keep going strong, as we go into the half-time break. A second goal was added by Lacazette just on the brink of half-time and things look totally sorted now. Unless they really mess things up, the game should be won at the Emirates and this will be the last time we see Wenger in-charge at the club at home.
