How Arsenal could line up against Burnley

Ahead of the game between Burnley and Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, Sports Mole looks at how Unai Emery's side could line up at Turf Moor.

Arsenal head into their fixture with Burnley knowing that only a convincing victory will keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League through the Premier League.

Unai Emery's side find themselves three points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur, but the goal difference of their North London rivals is eight better than their own.

However, the Gunners will have a second chance to make next season's Champions League when they face Chelsea in the Europa League final later this month.

Below, Sports Mole predicts what starting lineup could be named by Emery as he assesses the fitness of his players after Thursday's win at Valencia.

Out: Hector Bellerin (knee), Rob Holding (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Denis Suarez (groin)

Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Danny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey and Denis Suarez have all been ruled out for the rest of the season through injury.

However, Emery has no further issues in the treatment room ahead of the trip to Turf Moor, although one of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette could be rested for this match.

Stephan Lichtsteiner is in contention to return at right-back, while Emery may opt against taking any risks with Laurent Koscielny in the centre of defence.

Nacho Monreal could start on the opposite side of the backline, and Matteo Guendouzi may get the nod over Lucas Torreira in midfield.

Mesut Ozil should keep his place in the team after being substituted during the second half against Valencia.
