Team News

Arteta's midfield crisis is just not letting up, with Partey and Granit Xhaka - who has been sent off two times before against Burnley - absent due to suspension, while Mohamed Elneny remains on Africa Cup of Nations duty alongside Nicolas Pepe.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may not be risked just yet, despite heart exams showing that he is "completely healthy", and Arteta also has injuries to Calum Chambers, Cedric Soares and Bernd Leno to work around.

Martin Odegaard will likely be required in a deeper role once more alongside Albert Sambi Lokonga, with Arteta reluctant to throw 18-year-old Charlie Patino into the deep end.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Lokonga, Odegaard; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how Burnley's COVID-19 cluster will impact their lineup this weekend, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Nathan Collins, Dwight McNeil, Charlie Taylor, Erik Pieters and Matej Vydra are believed to be among the players affected.

Some of the affected crop will certainly expect to be involved this weekend, but Connor Roberts and Ashley Barnes are both set to miss out through injury, and Maxwel Cornet remains on AFCON duty.

Jay Rodriguez will shoulder the goalscoring burden following Wood's departure, and Aaron Lennon could join the 32-year-old in the final third if Vydra is not ready to return just yet.
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Cork, Westwood, Brownhill; Lennon, Rodriguez

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Burnley
