Arsenal vs. Burnley: Premier League – Match Preview

Both Arsenal and Burnley will look to build on positive starts to the season when they meet at the Emirates on Saturday.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal as Arsenal edged past Newcastle United last weekend.

The Gunners have enjoyed a good summer transfer window, adding the likes of Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe and David Luiz.

It was no surprise to see Burnley sign players that fit the Sean Dyche system, with the highlight of the window, Jay Rodriguez’ return to Turf Moor.

Ashley Barnes scored twice as Burnley thrashed Southampton 3-0 on the opening day of the season.

Match history
Arsenal won both league meetings 3-1 last season, with Aubameyang scoring a brace in each fixture.

Team news
Both Ceballos and Pepe could earn their first competitive starts for the Gunners here.

Mesut Ozil and Saed Kolasinac are in contention to return having missed out at Newcastle due to personal issues.

Burnley are very likely to name the same XI that thrashed Southampton.

Charlie Taylor could return if fit enough, but Eric Pieters was superb on his debut and will likely remain in the team.

Expected starting XI’s
Arsenal (4-3-3): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Chambers, Sokratis, Monreal’ Guendouzi, Xhaka, Ceballos; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Burnley (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Cork, Westwood, McNeill; Barnes, Wood
