Following a few draws in the league and a win over Bournemouth in the Cup, we travel to Burnley for a very tricky away game ahead of two weeks off.
It’s yet to seen how Arteta’s defence will line up with late fitness tests on Mustafi and Kolasinac following recent injuries.
In better news, Aubameyang and Luiz both return after recent bans for red cards, Aubameyang has missed our last three while David Luiz missed the cup game after seeing red at Chelsea. Remains to be seen whether either player have lost their places after Gabriel Martinelli’s form in Aubameyang’s absence. Plus our new signings in defence, and the possible returns of Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac.
After a run of 4 successive defeats, Burnley have impressively beaten Leicester and Manchester United recently, so we are going to have our work cut out to prise all three points away from The Clarets.
Meanwhile, *delete as appropriate:
* Arsenal are unbeaten in 2020 and have only once in their last 6 under Arteta.
* Arsenal only have one win in 6 games under Arteta in 2020.
We are level on points with Burnley who have never beaten Arsenal in the Premier League and will look to reverse last seasons outcome. A win could see either side move up to 8th and close the gap on the top 4 to just 7 points.
We won this fixture 3-1 last season, you can see the game on Sky Sports in the UK and it kicks off at 2pm.
Probably my favourite recent goal against Burnley, which would definitely have been disallowed by VAR these days:
