Full Arsenal squad to face Burnley confirmed as Mikel Arteta sweats on Emile Smith Rowe injury

Arsenal are back in Premier League action this afternoon when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor.

Mikel Arteta‘s men head to Lancashire looking to make it three straight wins across all competitions having beaten Leicester City last night, adding to a Europa League win over Benfica.

The win over Leicester last time out was a much-needed boost in the Premier League for the Gunners, but there was one sour note from an otherwise delightful afternoon at the King Power Stadium for Arteta’s men.

Midfielder Emile Smith Rowe was forced off injured in the first half and had to be replaced by Martin Odegaard, leaving concern over whether he would be fit for this clash with Burnley.

And it seems questions continue with Arsenal confirming that Smith Rowe remains a doubt for the Burnley fixture despite tests showing no significant injury to his hip.

That will be a concern for Arteta with Smith Rowe proving critical for the Gunners this season, but the Spanish boss will have goalkeeper Alex Runarsson back.

After picking up a knee injury, Runarsson has been deemed fit to play having returned to training and he will likely start from the bench, behind Bernd Leno.

So, where does that leave the Arsenal squad? Who does Arteta have available to choose from for today’s clash at Turf Moor? Take a look below.
