Arsenal vs Burnley - preview and possible line-ups

We preview and include possible line-ups for Saturday's Premier League clash between Arsenal and Burnley at the Emirates stadium.

TEAM NEWS

Arsenal

 

Unai Emery doesn't have many injury worries to contend with. Alexandre Lacazette is pushing for a recall after suffering an ankle injury, however the Frenchman may find himself on the substitutes' bench for a second game in a row. Pepe could be preferred over Nelson, while Calum Chambers may be replaced by David Luiz. Real Madrid loanee Ceballos is pushing for his first start in the Premier League, leaving Willock uncertain of where he stands. The win last week will have given the Gunner's some confidence to go in to this game and get 3 points out of it. They must now deliver in the first home game of their 2019-20 campaign.

Burnley

Sean Dyche will more than likely go with the same starting XI that won 3-0 against Southampton last week. After his return to Turf Moor, James Rodriguez is still awaiting his first appearance this season for the club. Chelseae loanee Danny Drinkwater will not be involved in tomorrow's game as he continues to work on his fitness. Dyche will be hoping that the win last week will set the tone for the rest of the season and Burnley will certainly be going into this game with confidence, especially as Burnley seem to perform best when under pressure.

MANAGER'S THOUGHTS

Unai Emery "Really it’s going to be a very physical match. We need that adaptation, to be strong and an important game plan with our structure and tactical positioning. They're very strong with the duels." He believes that keeping a clean sheet is important, but the win is obviously more important. He says that all they need to do on Saturday is impose their game plan and be confident, because they have a lot of things to be positive about.

Sean Dyche- "Arsenal are a good side who have spent a lot of money" . He says that his team have to be on their top performance, as he states that if you are not performing well, you can easily get hurt. He says that the players have come back from last season and last week's clear-minded and are all ready to go this weekend.
