Match: Arsenal v Burnley
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick Off (GMT): Sun 22 Jan 14:15
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:
GK) Petr Cech
- Agent of exiled Mesut Ozil warns Arsenal that the truth will be revealed
- Arsenal overtaken by new frontrunners to sign Houssem Aouar in January
- Ex-Arsenal star favouring a move to America’s MLS to restart career
The Czech stopper will undoubtedly keep his place in goals. Petr Cech will be hoping for another clean sheet at the Emirates with the first choice back four playing in front of him.
RB) Hector Bellerin
The Spaniard is back in training and we predict he will return to starting lineup. Hector Bellerin is undoubtedly the first choice at right-back and we think will be chosen ahead of players like Gabriel and Carl Jenkinson.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
The Frenchman will play at the Emirates for the first time since signing a new contract. Laurent Koscielny has agreed to be at Arsenal for some time and on current form, few would be against it.
CB) Shkodran Mustafi
The German should start alongside Laurent Koscielny. Shkodran Mustafi was impressive in the last match against Swansea City and will be hoping for a repeat performance.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Nacho Monreal should keep his place at left-back. The Spaniard’s main rival, Kieran Gibbs is back in training but Monreal should be the man to start against Burnley.
