Arsenal vs Burnley: Line-up: Alexis & Ox On The Flanks, Ramsey & Carzola In CM. Arsenal Starting XI Predicted.

Arsenal welcome Burnley to the Emirates in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League kick-off. And although Arsene Wenger would still be troubled by the absence of a handful of his stars still sidelined due to one injury or the other, he would however be confident of picking up all three point from a Burnley side that currently lie at the bottom of the log with 4 points.

There shouldn’t be much trouble in the selection process for the match. And it expected for Wenger to throw in a couple of fringe player at some point or the other. However the boss is likely to filed-out his best stars in a bid to get them into a rhythm which many Arsenal fans are yet to see this season, aside the home game against Galatasary of course which saw fluidity in our play.

Long time absentee – Theo Walcott, who has been out of action and on the treatment table since the start of the year with a Cruciate knee ligament injury had revealed his likely participation in this weekend’s League match against Burnley at the Emirates. However the boss in his press conference earlier today has moved to put such expectations to rest insisting the pacy forward has been out too long to be thrown straight into the starting eleven against Burnley.

However, it cant be denied that Walcott has been missed by every Arsenal faithful. With his blistering pace down the flanks leading to scintillating counter-attacking football capable of changing any game at any time and against any opponent.

Jack Wilshere is also set to miss out on the game tomorrow as suggested by the boss after the 22 year old picked a knock on his ever troubling knee, although it was described by the boss as a very very minor situation so it is expected that Wilshere will return to action in subsequent games.

Gibbs was a doubt for this encounter over the last couple of days with a hip trouble but the boss also in his press conference insisted that he is “quite confident” over the players situation ahead of the weekend’s tie. Meaning Hector Bellerin will most likely watch the game from the bench again while Chambers keeps the right-back spot. Though i would prefer drifting Chambers in the middle to pair with Per and have Bellerin start, but its now clear that Wenger is bent on converting Monreal to a centre defender – with the boss handing him a lot of game time in the middle with the clear intentions of getting him adapted to the position.

Wenger is also likely to hand one of his finest midfielders Aaron Ramsey a start in this weekend’s game with the intention of getting him back to his best after a short injury lay-off he suffered.

Below is my predicted Arsenal line-up for the clash against Burnley.

Share your opinion on how Wenger should line-up his side.
