Arsenal Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Burnley

Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at Turf Moor on Sunday

Arsenal complete their Premier League season on Sunday when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor.

Although mathematically the Gunners still have a chance of finishing in the top four, it would take a remarkable mix of results for Unai Emery’s side to move above Tottenham into the Champions League places.

The Gunners would need to win at Turf Moor while Spurs would need to lose at home to Everton. There would also need to be an eight-goal swing in terms of goal difference.

So realistically Sunday’s game is about Arsenal ensuring they finish fifth, something they would do with victory in Lancashire.

Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are doubts for Arsenal after picking up knocks during Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final win in Valencia.

Kolasinac was replaced during the second half in Spain and although Maitland-Niles finished the game, the defender limped away from the stadium with a suspected ankle problem.

Aaron Ramsey is out with a hamstring injury and all three long-term absentees, Rob Holding (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Hector Bellerin (knee) remain sidelined.

Arsenal do not have anyone banned for the game. 

Unai Emery will certainly make changes to his side given the energy-sapping win in Spain on Thursday night.

It is likely that one of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette will be handed a rest, potentially the latter as Aubameyang still has a chance of the golden boot.

Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could come into the front line, with Matteo Guendouzi is expected to start in midfield.

At the back, Shkodran Mustafi may replace Laurent Koscielny, while Stephan Lichtsteiner could come in at right-back.

Bernd Leno will return after Petr Cech started against Valencia in the Europa League.

Defender Phil Bardsley could return for the Clarets after missing the last five games. Boss Sean Dyche has said he might make some changes, but Ben Mee is expected to start. If Mee completes the game he will have played every single minute of the Premier League season.

Kick-off is 3pm BST (10am ET) on Sunday May 12, and the game will not be televised in the United Kingdom.
