The final Premier League games are here and what a disappointing campaign it turned out to be, to miss out on top four the way we have has been very frustrating because we had it in our own hands on multiple occasions and yet we find ourselves needing a miraculous eight-goal swing, Tottenham to lose and us to win to finish top four.
It is not going to happen and you have to think that Unai Emery accepts the situation and that must surely influence what sort of team he puts out against Burnley.
It is over two weeks until the Europa League final and so there is no need to rest players as such but injuries must be avoided and therefore you cannot be selecting players that may be tired after the trip to Valencia on Thursday night.
I believe he will stick with Petr Cech in goal, it is going to be his last ever Premier League game and Emery will acknowledge this I am sure.
The defence could see a back four of Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Mustafi and Monreal simply because I do think he will want to risk Koscielny, Maitland-Niles or Kolasinac from the start.
I expect the midfield to consist of Torreira, Guendouzi and Xhaka with Mkhitaryan and Iwobi just behind Aubameyang up front.
I will be surprised if Emery picks Ozil or Lacazette in this away game, there is simply no reason to.
So, my predicted starting eleven is
Now, I will admit that my predicted line up is pure guesswork, Emery has given almost no indication of the sort of team he is considering putting out, he could easily pick Ozil, Lacazette, Elneny and even Joe Willock or Eddie Nketiah.
But I do think that the boss will try and strike the right balance by putting out as strong a team as possible while not taking any major risks.
Because we played Thursday night and Burnley have had a long rest in addition to our poor away record I am sadly going to go for a draw in this game.
Burnley 1-1 Arsenal
