Team News:

Burnley will be without striker Ashley Barnes, who has scored three of the club's seven Premier League goals against Arsenal.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Robbie Brady and Jack Cork will all be assessed ahead of kickoff, but the match may come too soon for Cork in particular to recover from a tight hamstring.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood

Arteta is blessed with a largely clean bill of health at the moment, with Emile Smith Rowe the only first-team regular over whom there is a question mark for this match.

The youngster was forced off shortly before half time against Leicester last time out and could miss out again on Saturday, with Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard set to replace him in the starting XI.

Arteta left the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka, Thomas Partey, Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Dani Ceballos out for that Leicester game and was rewarded with one of his side's best wins of the season, so he faces a dilemma whether to welcome some of those players back into his team for this one.

Aubameyang netted the only goal of the game at the wrong end in the reverse fixture, but he has scored more Premier League goals against Burnley than he has against any other side so will be desperate to return to the starting lineup.

Nicolas Pepe has also begun to find some good scoring form, netting in four of his last five away league games.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Cedric, Luiz, Mari, Tierney; Thomas, Xhaka; Pepe, Odegaard, Willian; Lacazette

Arsenal Premier League form: DLLWLW
Arsenal form (all competitions): LWDLWW

Prediction: Burnley 0-1 Arsenal
