Arsenal's predicted line-up against newly promoted Burnley

Arsenal's predicted line-up against newly promoted Burnley

Arsenal would take on Burnley led by former Manchester City defender Vincent Company as both sides return to action following European football in midweek.

Mikel Arteta would be pleased with the news that two of his players could be available for this weekend's Premier League match.

The London side witnessed slight injury in the Champions League win against Sevilla with Bukayo Saka and Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu picking up knocks in the game.

Arteta is adamant that either of the aforementioned players (above) was heavily injured.

However, it's likely that the quartet of Emile Smith Rowe (knee), Gabriel Jesus (hamstring), Jurrien Timber (knee) and Thomas Partey (muscle) will miss the Burnley tie.

While playmaker Martin Odegaard (hip) and Eddie Nketiah (ankle) are major doubt for this encounter.

If Saka passes a late fitness test, then the English talent is expected to feature alongside Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard in an unaltered three-man attack, the same that started the game against Sevilla.

Germany's Kai Havertz became more confident as the game progressed and is still expected to start unless Odegaard returns to the team. Jorginho and new signing Declan Rice as expected will sit a the base of the midfield.

Tomiyasu's injury was stated as just a mere 'discomfort' after the Champions League tie but a fresh-legged Oleksandr Zinchenko should return to the side either way.

Ben White who missed out on Gareth Southgate's squad for the Three Lions next couple of games will continue as a right back.

Willian Saliba could be playing alongside Gabriel Magalhaes in the heart of the defence as both would have the responsibility to shield David Raya from danger in the goalpost.

Arsenal's possible starting team in a 4-3-3 formation system:

David Raya; Ben White, Willian Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Kai Havertz, Jorginho, Declan Rice; Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Martinelli.
