Following the impressive 2-0 win in the north London derby, Arsene Wenger will be expected to name an unchanged starting XI for the trip to Burnley.

Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette all shone last weekend and look set to retain their starts in the front three. Alex Iwobi, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck are the main alternatives.

Iwobi came on as a sub in Thursday’s Europa League tie so is the more likely to press for a start at Turf Moor, while both Giroud and Welbeck were named in the starting line-up in Cologne.

Welbeck was replaced on 45 minutes, indicating that he may also see some action against the Clarets having returned to fitness.

In the midfield positions, Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are the favourites to start having been omitted from Thursday’s tie, with Francis Coquelin, Jack Wilshere and Mohamed Elneny the back-up options – all three featured on Thursday.

Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac should continue in the wing-back positions, leaving Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal in the three-man backline.

Per Mertesacker and Rob Holding provide cover in central defence, while Calum Chambers is also back in contention having returned for 67 minutes in Germany.

Theo Walcott (illness) is a doubt, while Santi Cazorla is a long-term absentee.
