So the Gunners take on the Clarets at the Emirates today in a game that should be easy for Arsenal, except for the fact that we have hardly any recognised defenders left.
Here is the team I predicted earlier in my Arsenal v Burnley Preview…
And here is Emery’s selection….

I can’t say I’m unhappy that Maitland-Niles is starting ahead of Lichtsteiner, although he is another one playing out of position, but VERY surprised that Elneny comes in for Torreira, although the Uruguayan did say the other day that he wasn’t used to playing so many games so he is probably getting a bit in need of a rest.
Xhaka is back in his rightful position in the middle of the field, and we have the so-called dream team of Ozil, Auba and Laca up front. If all three of them come back into form today we should be in for a treat!
Come on you Gunners!
