Arsenal press conference live: Mikel Arteta on Smith Rowe’s injury, Willian’s form and Burnley

Arsenal face Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Gunners go into the game off of the back of a positive week of results in both Europe and their domestic division.

Last Thursday they were able to secure dramatic passage into the Europa League Round of 16 with a dramatic win over Benfica before topping that off with an impressive away win over high flying Leicester.

In both games the form of Willian, a player who has been yet to find his best since his move to the Emirates in the summer, was an obvious talking point.

Then there was also the return of Thomas Partey from his latest muscular injury problem as a substitute in both matches.

However, the only negative was that Emile Smith Rowe limped off with a hip problem at the King Power that Mikel Arteta admitted was a big one.

We’re expecting to hear updates from the Gunners boss on all of the above in his press conference this morning.
