The gunners will today face Burnley at the Turf Moor and they will be hoping to collect all the three points from the game because the other teams in the race for a top four finish have dropped points this weekend. Mikel Arteta will want to pick the best lineup to get these valuable points and so here’s the predicted starting eleven with all eyes on Aubameyang and Martinelli.
PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP TO FACE BURNLEY
Leno, Bellerin, Sokratis, Luiz, Saka, Torreira, Xhaka, Martinelli, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Bernd Leno is fully fit to play and will be in between the goal posts this afternoon when the gunners visit The Clarets.
Arsenal’s new signing Pablo Mari is lacking match fitness and will probably not be involved in this game, and Cedric Soares will not be back until after the winter break. And so Arsenal’s back four will consist of Bellerin, Luiz, Sokratis, Saka.
Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka have been fantastic in a double pivot ever since Mikel Arteta was appointed and so they will definitely be starting today’s game.
Martinelli has been on form ever since Aubameyang got suspended. Arteta will probably bench Pepe in order to make both Martinelli and Aubameyang start in today’s game. Ozil is another player that Arteta has put trust in him this season and so he will be starting today despite Willock’s performance in the FA Cup.
Alexandre Lacazette is a very important player in Arteta’s system and so the chances of him getting benched are low despite Aubameyang’s return and Martinelli’s form. The Frenchman will lead the line for the gunners against Burnley.
