Arsenal will be aiming to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they lock horns with relegation-battling Burnley this weekend.
While Arsenal have been going all guns blazing in the UEFA Europa League, Mikel Arteta’s side have struggled to replicate the same form in the league and find themselves in the 15th place in the table, and are closer to the relegation zone than they are to the top four.
The Gunners were handed a 2-0 defeat in the North London Derby by Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and they produced a strong reaction in midweek, defeating Dundalk 4-2 in Europe.
Arteta, who finds himself under pressure, will now be hoping that his players are able to carry that momentum forward to Sunday.
Burnley, meanwhile, are dawdling in the 18th place in the standings, having picked up just six points from their ten games so far.
Five of those points have come in their last four games though, with Sean Dyche’s men looking to turn a corner, following their 1-1 draw against Everton at Turf Moor last weekend.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-1 win for Arsenal with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring on either side of an Ashley Barnes strike.
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerín, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney, El Nenny, Xhaka, Willian, Lacazette, Saka, Aubameyang
Burnley XI (4-4-1-1): Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Brady, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Rodriguez, Wood
Kick off is at 20:15 (GMT +1).
