Wenger Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face Burnley

By on October 30, 2014


Arsenal will hope to make it three wins on the spin when they entertain Burnley at the Emirates on Saturday. This is the team Gooner Mac thinks will start the game.

Goalkeeper: Wojciech Szczesny is certain to start in goal and with David Ospina out injured, Emiliano Martinez will continue to be on the bench as back-up.

Defence: Kieran Gibbs faces a late fitness test on a hip injury he picked up against Sunderland last week but I think he’ll be okay to start this weekend. Laurent Koscielny is still on the sidelines with an Achilles injury and Wenger has gone with Nacho Monreal alongside Per Mertesacker in recent weeks so he’ll most likely stick with that combination unless Monreal has to fill-in at left-back if Gibbs is ruled out. Calum Chambers should keep his place at right-back with Mathieu Debuchy out.

Midfield: Jack Wilshere returns from a one-game ban after collecting five yellow cards and although Wenger went with Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta last week, I think we’ll see both Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey start on Saturday.

Attack: Theo Walcott is expected to be in the squad but I don’t think we’ll see him start so Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla will probably keep their places in support of Danny Welbeck in attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Lukas Podolski are other options out wide if the boss wants to mix things up.

So this is how I think Arsenal will line-up against Burnley:

What do you think of the team? What line-up would you like to see put out?
