Team News: Burnley
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Burnley boss Sean Dyche to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Connor Roberts (Groin Injury) misses out.
Team News: Arsenal
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta to contend with. Granit Xhaka (Corona virus) won’t be in action. Granit Xhaka is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We’re thinking that Burnley could find themselves up against it to register a score against this Arsenal team who should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore tipping a narrow 0-1 victory for Arsenal at the conclusion of the game.
