After Thursday’s triumph in Valencia, this game will likely have the feeling of ‘after the lord mayor’s show’ about it. The focus for Arsenal fans will be on the Europe League Final against Chelsea, and it will be interesting to see how the players approach it.
Considering the Gunners’ poor away record too, it has to be said that Burnley start the game as favourites to get the three points. However, some of Arsenal’s stars may want to impress to ensure their place in the starting line up for the game in Baku.
In terms of injury news, Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are doubts for tomorrow after picking up knocks on Thursday evening. Manager Unai Emery also still has five long-term injuries with none expected to feature again this season.
Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Denis Suarez (groin) have joined the likes of Hector Bellerin (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Rob Holding (knee) on the treatment table.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Burnley
Leno, Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette, Aubameyang
For Burnley, Phil Bardsley is likely to return from a leg injury, but Robbie Brady (muscular), Aaron Lennon (knee) and Steven Defour (calf) won’t feature on Sunday.
Burnley’s Predicted XI:
Heaton, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Barnes, Wood
The bookmakers have gone for Arsenal as the slight favourites with BetVictor having them at 5/4 to win. A draw is 14/5 with Unibet while a Burnley victory is currently 23/10 at Betfair.
