Confirmed Arsenal line-up vs Burnley, Zinchenko starts

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has made one change to the starting line-up for today’s Premier League clash against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners returned to winning ways on Wednesday night with a convincing 2-0 win over Sevilla in the Champions League group stage. Bukayo Saka starred with a goal and an assist.

The club graduate suffered a knock during the final phase of the game, but he has recovered in time. The Englishman has been picked in the starting line-up to face the Clarets.

Arteta has gone with the same attack from midweek with Saka and Gabriel Martinelli starting on the flanks. Leandro Trossard gets the nod in the number nine position.

The midfield is likewise unchanged with Jorginho, Declan Rice and Kai Havertz.

Club captain Martin Odegaard was facing a race against time to be fit. He misses out from the team for the third game running, having failed to recover from his injury.

Meanwhile, there is a change in the backline with Ben White missing from the matchday squad. In his place, Oleksandr Zinchenko has made the starting line-up today.

The Ukrainian will start in his customary left-back spot with Takehiro Tomiyasu moving to right-back.

William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes continue in the heart of the defence with David Raya in goal. The Spaniard is now the undisputed starter ahead of Aaron Ramsdale.

Arsenal’s confirmed starting line-up (4-3-3): Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Saliba, Magalhaes, Zinchenko; Jorginho, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli.
