Latest News: Three Arsenal stars including Hector Bellerin (ankle), Kieran Gibbs (knee) and Francis Coquelin (hamstring) have all returned to full training this week, and should be available for the visit of Burnley to the Emirates.

With the fourth being Olivier Giroud who has also trained after picking up a toe injury against Swansea City and is thought to be in contention.

Bellerin looks set to come in for Gabriel at right-back then, with Gibbs an option to replace Nacho Monreal at left-back. Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny should form the centre-back partnership once again.

Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey combined well in the 4-0 win over Swansea, so Arsene Wenger may not risk putting Coquelin straight back into the side. If Giroud is again preferred up front, Alex Iwobi, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez look likely to continue in the attacking midfield positions.

The likes of Lucas Perez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck provide further attacking options. Theo Walcott (calf) remains sidelined, along with Mathieu Debuchy, Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker, although the German has started training individually.

Mohamed Elneny is unavailable due to his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.
