Arsenal take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon looking for a win to help us climb up the Premier League table.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns from suspension but it’s Nicolas Pepe who makes way as Gabriel Martinelli and Alexandre Lacazette keep their places in attack.

Sead Kolasinac isn’t risked as he’s still nursing his thigh problem so Bukayo Saka continues at left-back. David Luiz is also recalled after serving his one-match ban so he partners Shkodran Mustafi in the back four after the German recovered from a knock.

Sokratis must make do with a place on the bench along with Lucas Torreira as Mateo Guendouzi is preferred alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield. Hector Bellerin continues at right-back.

These are the line-ups for the game:


Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, McNeil, Wood, Rodriguez

Subs: Brady, Hart, Pieters, Lennon, Bardsley, Vydra, Long


Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Saka; Guendouzi, Xhaka; Martinelli, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Subs: Martinez, Sokratis, Torreira, Willock, Ceballos, Pepe, Nketiah
