Arsenal travel to Lancashire to face Burnley in Saturday’s early kick-off as they look to build on last weekend’s impressive victory at Leicester and continue their push for a European place.

The Gunners’ league form this season has been poor to say the least, having lost 11 games already their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League seem to depend on whether or not they can go all the way in the Europa League.

Regardless of their European aspirations, there is no getting away from the fact the club’s league position at present is unacceptable and if they’re going to improve on it, a fixture versus Burnley is exactly the type of game they need to take three points from.

Mikel Arteta made a number of changes for the game at Leicester last weekend and with the first leg of their European tie versus Olympiacos to come on Thursday, the Spaniard has some decisions to make. Here is the lineup that we believe the Arsenal boss should name.
