When Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal play Vincent Kompany’s Burnley within the Premier League on Saturday, it will be a Manchester City homecoming at the Emirates Stadium for the Burnley manager.
After being the initial team in the entire history of the Premier League in England to open a season with 6 straight home losses the previous week, the visitors on Saturday are in dire need of a victory. Crystal Palace won 2-0 at Turf Moor thanks to strikes from Jeffrey Schlupp and Tyrick Mitchell; as a result, Burnley’s sole chance of staying above the bottom of the Premier League standings is goal differential. Reduction of Burnley’s dependence on Lyle Foster should be a component of Kompany’s objectives. With a trio of goals and a pair of assists this campaign, the South African is the sole Clarets individual with more than one EPL scoring involvement. However, he might not recover from his illness after the forthcoming international break, therefore Zeki Amdouni and Jay Rodriguez might start at the front again on Saturday.
On Matchday 11, Arsenal and Tottenham, neighboring clubs, both lost their spotless starts to the Premier League season, but with quite different reasons for their losses. After Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United, Mikel Arteta became enraged over refereeing conditions; however, the Gunners need to channel their feelings of unfairness into gasoline before Burnley visits this week. VAR validated Stuart Attwell’s decision to leave Anthony Gordon’s second-half winner in place. Despite doubts over a probable offside, the ball maybe going away from play, and a questionable Joelinton shove on Gabriel Magalhães. By calling the Premier League refereeing standards “disgraceful,” Arteta exposed himself to potential disciplinary proceedings from The Football Association. Despite being just three points behind Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, Arsenal has not exactly found its footing in 2023–24.
