Arsenal vs Burnley - Arsenal short on options for Burnley clash

Arsenal could be without up to eight players ahead of Saturday’s Premier League visit of Burnley.

Head coach Unai Emery may shake things up after two defeats in a row, including Wednesday’s Carabao Cup quarter-final loss to Tottenham.

Danny Welbeck (ankle), Rob Holding (knee), Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin), Emile Smith Rowe (hip), Hector Bellerin (calf) and Shkodran Mustafi will all be missing while the Gunners will assess the fitness of Sead Kolasinac (thigh) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (ankle) ahead of the lunchtime kick-off.

Aaron Lennon will miss Burnley’s trip to Emirates Stadium after undergoing knee surgery earlier this week.

Fellow wide men Robbie Brady and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are carrying knocks but remain in contention as the Clarets look to bounce back after a last-gasp 1-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Belgium midfielder Steven Defour’s calf injury is likely to preclude his involvement for a fourth straight game, while defender Stephen Ward (knee) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) are also sidelined.
