Arsenal: The home side is coming off a big Europa League win where they dominated their opposition during the match. During their Premier League fixture last week, they fell 2-0 in a loss against Tottenham in the heated North London derby. The Gunners have lost three of their last five matches, and have yet to put together a win streak during their 11 matches this season. Manager Mikel Arteta is now facing questions about whether the younger more experimental lineups he’s used during the Europa League might also serve him well domestically.

Burnley: The team is on a dreadful streak, winning only one of their 10 matches in Premier League thus far. Their away record against Arsenal is bleak, having lost six of their road matches to the Gunners. While it’s early in the season with time to turn their year around, it’ll be difficult to do so with a number of lingering injuries to key players including Johann Berg Gudmundsson.
