Mikel Arteta has made just one change from the side that gallantly crashed out of the League Cup (after Tottenham) on Thursday.
He has been forced to replace Tomiyasu with Rob Holding, and Ben White will play right back in his place. Our bench looks pretty lightweight, but hopefully we’ll still have enough to beat Burnley who boast just one win all season.
Ramsdale, White, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney, Lokonga, Odegaard, Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette
Leno, Tavares, Chambers, Alebiosu, Patino, Salah-Eddine, Hutchison, Bierith, Nketiah, Idris Elba, Tom Watt, Amy Lawrence and Alan Davies.
The Chuckle Brothers; Partey and Xhaka are both missing through suspension, both red cards picked up against Liverpool. It was also revealed this morning that Tomiyasu has been pulled from his international duties coming up where we will try and patch him up.
The good news is following this game, we don’t play until February 10th when we visit Wolves, and all suspensions will be served, and hopefully, all our injuries fixed.
Takehiro Tomiyasu has withdrawn from the Japan national team squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against China & Saudi Arabia due to injury. [@aishiterutokyo] #afc pic.twitter.com/ptXL3rXx2i
