Burnley vs Arsenal LIVE! :Straight from getting their first places of the period, Arsenal go north to Turf Moor this evening to take on Burnley in the Premier League.
After a sad beginning to the new season, which saw the Gunners lose their initial three association games – against Brentford, Chelsea and Man City – Arsenal moved off the lower part of the table with last end of the week’s 1-0 success at home to Norwich because of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s objective.

The pressing factor has been mounting on Mikel Arteta and triumph over the Canaries has just given brief rest, with the Spaniard very much aware that his side should convey one more sure outcome this evening as they attempt to gather some speed.
The Arsenal manager let it out was agonizing to watch the beginning of European club rivalry get in progress in midweek, realizing his side would have no influence after they completed eighth last season, yet the absence of mainland responsibility does essentially mean Arteta will have the advantage of entire weeks on the preparation ground for a lot of this season. Would he be able to take advantage of them?

Our predicted lineup
We think Thomas Partey will make his first start of the season today.
The midfielder injured his ankle during a pre-season friendly with Chelsea in August and he made his comeback last week against Norwich.
Partey started on the bench for that game – coming on with 30 minutes to go – but he is hoping to start against Burnley.
The Ghanaian will play a key role for Arsenal this season and the club were wary about rushing him back.
“He is there. He has been training in and out this week. His load had to be managed because he was in the early stages of the injury and what he had,” said Arteta.
Arsenal likely XI: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Lokonga; Pepe, Odegaard, Saka; Aubameyang.
