Confirmed team news: Arsenal lineup with new signing absent after injury

Arsenal have announced their lineup for this afternoon’s clash with Burnley at Turf Moor.

Alexis Sanchez keeps his place up front for the Gunners, with Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil providing the same dangerous platform which has caused serious problems to defences in Arsenal’s recent fixtures.

Arsenal fans will be excited to see Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny lined up together at the back again, with the pair seemingly developing a very solid partnership.

Granit Xhaka comes into the lineup to provide some muscle alongside Santi Cazorla at the base of the Arsenal midfield.

However it’s not all good news, with the Arsenal official Twitter also announcing that summer signing Lucas Perez was not in the squad because he was suffering from a knee injury.
