Arsenal team news: Boost for Gunners as key duo to return vs Burnley

Arsenal are due to face off against Burnley in a Premier League encounter at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners who head into the game 11 points adrift of fourth place Chelsea will be looking for nothing less than victory.

Arsenal will have captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and defender David Luiz available again after the duo completed their suspensions, according to BBC.

The report added that the Gunners are assessing the fitness of Sead Kolasinac, Shkodran Mustafi, Reiss Nelson as well as new signings Pablo Mari and Cedric.

Arsenal may have been lacking consistency during the past five years but if one thing has been certain, they have been consistent when it comes to beating Sean Dyche’s charges.

They have managed to win their past 11 games in all competitions against the Clarets in a run which stretches back to March 2010.

Burnley are also without a top-flight victory over Arsenal in 14 games, dating back to a 1-0 win at Highbury in September 1974.

The game will be a true test for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, who is looking to rebuild the club into a giant of English football.

Whilst his side will head into the game as favourites, they cannot afford to take the Clarets lightly.

Dyche has built Burnley into an established Premier League side and they are even capable of upsetting most of the sides on the top half of the table- perhaps excluding Liverpool.

Arsenal will be hoping that they can continue their good recent run of away form.
