Sunday’s best football bet with Sam Hendry

Burnley vs Arsenal – Sunday 2pm

After a three-match suspension, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could return to the Arsenal line-up with a bang on their trip to Turf Moor.

Alexandre Lacazette has been woefully out of form leaving young Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli as their most dangerous forward. Aubameyang’s return should help with that.

His 14 league goals have come in 22 games and he had netted three times since Mikel Arteta’s appointment before his untimely red card against Crystal Palace.

Burnley’s win at Old Trafford bucked the trend of their terrible record against the supposed ‘top six’ this season. Before that, they had failed to take a point off any of them in seven meetings, conceding 23 goals in the process.

I wouldn’t put it past Sean Dyche to steer his side to a positive result on Sunday, but I think they’ll struggle to keep Aubameyang out. He is 3/1 to score first and 10/11 to score anytime.
