PREM: Arsenal v Burnley preview


Arsenal v Burnley preview

Arsenal can cut the gap on Chelsea to five points – for at least a couple of hours – when they host Burnley.


The clash at the Emirates is the second of three live games on Sky Sports 1, which is followed almost immediately by Chelsea against Hull City.

The Gunners have found their form again after back-to-back defeats at Everton and Man City. The 4-0 victory over Swansea was their third victory in the last four games.

Burnley travel to north London with the worst away record in the league.

Only one of Burnley's 26 points this season has been secured away from Turf Moor, at Old Trafford in a 0-0 draw with Manchester United.

Arsene Wenger is expected to welcome a trio of players back into his squad.

Hector Bellerin (ankle), Kieran Gibbs (knee) and Francis Coquelin (hamstring) are all set to be in contention for a return to the side and Olivier Giroud is fit despite being forced off during the win at Swansea with an ankle issue.

Theo Walcott (calf), Santi Cazorla (Achilles), Per Mertesacker (knee) and Mathieu Debuchy (hamstring) all remain sidelined, while midfielder Mohamed Elneny is at the African Nations Cup with Egypt.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is set for a triple injury boost ahead of Sunday's trip to the capital.

All three players missed the midweek FA Cup replay win over Sunderland due to minor knocks but are expected to pass late fitness tests for the Emirates Stadium clash.

Scott Arfield is expected to miss out again after sustaining a knee injury in the original Sunderland fixture, while James Tarkowski could come into contention after an impressive display on Tuesday night.
