The confirmed line-up has been released by Arsenal, and we have I’m a little confused as to why we have no striker in our squad.
As expected, Alexis Sanchez has been given the central role, with his impressive partnership with Theo Walcott set to continue, but the surprise comes with both Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez excluded from the bench, with three defenders included.
We come into the match on the back of four consecutive Premier League wins, but face a tough trip to Turf Moor today, where Burnley have not lost in three, including two 2-0 wins over in-form Liverpool and Watford sides.
We will need to make sure we respect our opponents, but with the form we are in, you would have to say that if we continue to play the way we have been doing, we simply must win.
Gabriel has been included in the squad and could make his first Premier League outing of the season, but may have trouble forcing himself ahead of the impressive Rob Holding, Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny in the bid for a starting role.
Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
Walcott Ozil Iwobi
Is this the perfect line-up to ensure all three points from a touch away match-up?
