Burnley v Arsenal Confirmed Team News & Predicted XI

Arsenal will be looking to seek revenge on Burnley for their victory in December, and have a near full-strength squad of options at their disposal.

The Gunners come into the clash with just one player needing to be assessed in the build-up, and zero men ruled out completely.

It is a welcome change for our squad to be without issues while many of our rivals suffer with fitness and injury issues, although we don’t have a perfectly clean bill of health.

Emile Smith Rowe is to be assessed ahead of our clash at Turf Moor, although Martin Odegaard has shown that he can be almost as effective in the attacking midfielder role, so there should be no need to rush him back into the starting line-up.

Arsenal confirmed that Alex Runarsson is back available for our team however, after picking up an injury in training before our clash with Benfica, and he could well be in contention to make the bench.

Predicted Arsenal XI:

Leno
Bellerin Luiz Gabriel Tierney
Partey Xhaka
Saka Odegaard Aubameyang
Lacazette

This team should have more than enough to put the Clarets to bed this afternoon, despite their victory over us in December, and I firmly expect any XI named by Arteta to come away with the all-important three points.

    I would go with Willian and Pépé on either wings because we need Saka and Aubameyang for EL match…
    And I would start with Holding and Gabriel and will rest to Luiz..

      Like I always suggest, we need our best starting 11 for every game. Some of these guy’s weekly wages is more than my 10yr salary combined(I may be from a 3rd world nation but it applies to some of you too) Why can’t anyone earning so much play 90 mins twice a week?

      As a young lad I play football on a very hard concrete pavement for hours everyday after school and I was fine.

      During Wenger years, I can vividly remember losing in PL cos we rested players and also losing in Europe 3 or 4 days later.

      I understand the role fatigue plays but we currently don’t have team B capable of inflicting heavy defeat to mediocre Europa opponents like Benfica, Olympiacos e.t.c

      Start the best 11, then substitute when we have a 2 goal lead.

    Best of LUCK, Arsenal FC !!!

    I think Holding will play as his power in the air will be needed against Burnley who are a force at set pieces.

      Yes going on the performance against Leicester then Arsenal could well be too slick for Burnley. The Clarets though are not yet quite safe and even a point will be invaluable in their bid for survival. So I anticipate a tough old go and a narrow win

    Seems like bellerin and lacazette could be off and xhaka and Luiz should be gone if we want to progress so no point in playing these players with only a dozen games left in season and an international break coming up …

    Partey ceballos
    Pepe odegaard saka
    Aube
