By on March 6, 2021

Arsenal will look to build some momentum with victory over Burnley at Turf Moor this lunchtime [12.30 kick-off].

Mikel Arteta has rotated his squad once again ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League clash with Olympiacos. Calum Chambers gets a rare start at right-back with Hector Bellerin rested while Kieran Tierney keeps his place at left-back.

David Luiz is partnered by Pablo Mari in the middle of the Arsenal defence so Gabriel and Rob Holding are named among the substitutes. Thomas Partey is recalled to start alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield with Dani Ceballos on the bench.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns up front with Alexandre Lacazette making way while Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard join Willian in the Arsenal attack. Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli are among the subs.

These are the teams for the game:


Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Vydra, Wood.

Subs: Peacock-Farrell, Stephens, Rodriguez, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Dunne, Brady, Benson.


Leno, Chambers, Luiz, Mari, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Willian, Aubameyang
