Arsenal looking to make a statement against Burnley

Probable Lineups…

Arsenal goalArsenal (4-1-4-1): Szczesny, Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Flamini, Sanchez, Ramsey, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Welbeck

Arsenal managed to get their first win in four Premier League fixtures when they beat Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last weekend, which puts them fifth – two points behind fourth place West Ham United. The Gunners will therefore be hoping to gain all three points when winless Burnley travel to the Emirates on Saturday. Arsene Wenger, however, has concerns over his back-line with Mathieu Debuchy and Laurent Koscielny out with respective injuries. Kieran Gibbs is also a doubt, which means Nacho Monreal should slot into centre-back with Mertesacker while youngster Bellerin plays left-back in case Gibbs is unavailable.

Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton, Trippier, Duff, Shackell, Ward, Arfield, Jones, Marney, Boyd, Ings, Jutkiewicz

Burnley are currently the only side yet to win a Premier League game this season, sitting at the bottom of the division accumulating only four points. Sean Dyche’s side will not be expecting better than a draw when they travel to the Emirates on Saturday, as their previously strong defensive record has been washed away after conceding 12 goals in the last four games. The Clarets will be without Matthew Taylor, Steven Reid, and Sam Vokes, but all three haven’t featured much thus far and Dyche will be naming his best side to try to get a result.
