Arsenal will be looking to continue their excellent recent form with another win when we take on Burnley at Turf Moor this afternoon.

The Gunners head into the game off the back of a thumping 6-0 win away to West Ham last weekend. Bukayo Saka scored twice while William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes, Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice also got on the score-sheet at the London Stadium.

It made it four consecutive Premier League wins on the bounce to keep us within touching distance of leaders Liverpool, but Arsenal need another victory today to maintain the pressure on our title rivals.

Mikel Arteta has once again selected David Raya in goal while Ben White continues at right-back. Saliba and Gabriel start in the middle of Arsenal’s back four while Jacub Kiwior keeps his place at left-back with Oleksandr Zinchenko still out with a calf problem. Takehiro Tomiyasu is also still unavailable for selection.

Declan Rice will be looking to continue his excellent form in midfield while Martin Odegaard captains the Gunners once again. Leandro Trossard keeps his place while Emile Smith Rowe is back on the bench after overcoming a minor knock.

Saka and Martinelli keep their places on the wings while Kai Havertz starts in attack again. Gabriel Jesus has failed to prove his fitness as he continues to overcome a niggling knee injury.

Here are the line-ups:


Trafford; Assignon, O’Shea, Esteve, Delcroix; Ramsey, Berge, Brownhill, Odobert; Fofana, Amdouni.

Subs: Taylor, Cork, Gudmundsson, Rodriguez, Benson, Vitinho, Cullen, Bruun Larsen, Muric


Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Rice, Odegaard, Havertz; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli.

Subs: Ramsdale, Cedric, Sweet, Bandeira, Elneny, Jorginho, Nelson, Smith Rowe, Nketiah.
