Arsenal vs Burnley - LIVE!

Arsenal ensured they go into the international break on a high as they picked up a routine 3-1 win over Burnley. The Gunners went into the match having beaten Sevilla in midweek, though it had been back-to-back domestic defeats after a Carabao Cup exit to West Ham and a controversial loss to Newcastle.

There was to be no hat-trick, or indeed controversy, at the Emirates Stadium, as Arsenal maintained their unbeaten start to the season on home soil in relatively comfortable fashion to move level on points with Manchester City, for now, at the top of the Premier League.

Leandro Trossard opened the scoring just before the break, and while Josh Brownhill levelled in the second-half, William Saliba's header got the Gunners back in front almost immediately. Oleksandr Zinchenko's superb finish gave Arsenal real control, ensuring a late red card for Fabio Vieira did not make things too nervy.

A lack of squad depth ultimately proved costly for Arsenal last season, but this week will give them hope this year can be different.

Arsenal have been struggling with injuries and fitness issues for months, and they went into this game with Burnley fearing as many as eight first-team players could be out.

In the end, it turned out to be five and the Gunners got the win they needed to climb up to second in the Premier League, level on points with leaders Manchester City.

Leandro Trossard was fittingly the hero, because he has had to be patient for opportunities this season.

Oleksandr Zinchenko 8

Scored a brilliant goal to put Arsenal 3-1 up. It was no more than his performance deserved. So good in possession. Back to his best.

Kai Havertz 6

It definitely feels like he is getting used to his system and role, as the German was more assured today. Missed a good headed chance in the first-half.

The ball is bouncing, but I am not sure Vieira can have many complaints there.

It was reckless.

Arsenal 3-1 Burnley

16:45 , Matt Verri

83 mins: STRAIGHT RED!

Vieira is off! He's gone in high on Brownhill, late and he catches the Burnley man.

Arsenal down to 10.

He'll get ten minutes of rest, lucky him. Trossard also coming off.

Nelson and Nketiah the two to come on.

Arsenal 3-1 Burnley

16:43 , Matt Verri

80 mins: Trossard drives into the box, works it onto his right foot but the shot is charged down.

Game over?

Should be. Arsenal again dangerous from set-pieces.

Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

16:33 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Burnley seeing a bit more of the ball now, they're still in this match.

Arteta swivels round to look at his bench - there's not a huge amount there for him. Nketiah back among the substitutes, but he is clearly not fully fit yet.

Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

16:29 , Matt Verri

67 mins: Nearly 3-1!

Trossard driving into space, has Vieira free to his right but tries to go himself and loses the ball.

16:27 , Matt Verri

This time he chops inside, works the space for the shot but he drags it well wide from 25 yards out.

Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

16:24 , Matt Verri

62 mins: That goal has really hurt Burnley. Momentum immediately lost, the home fans are in fine voice again and Arsenal are back to dominating possession.

Arteta will be desperate for his side to get a third and really take control.

Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

16:21 , Matt Verri

59 mins: Arteta turns to his bench for the first time this afternoon.

Havertz is off, another frustrating match for him. Vieira on in his place.

Perfect response from Arsenal after going behind.

They've gone close on a few set-pieces today and finally one has paid off.

GOAL! Arsenal 2-1 Burnley | William Saliba 57'

16:19 , Matt Verri


Martinelli played in down the left, he pokes an effort at goal and it's turned behind for a corner.

From that set-piece, the Gunners are back in front. Saliba it is, rising highest from Trossard's corner!

Simon Collings at the Emirates

16:18 , Matt Verri

Arsenal wanted a foul there but nothing given.

They can have no complaints really.

GOAL! Arsenal 1-1 Burnley | Josh Brownhill 54'

16:16 , Matt Verri

Tomiyasu shrugged off it out wide, ball into the middle is cleared only as far as Brownhill, who lashes past Raya with the help of a deflection.

Arsenal 1-0 Burnley

16:15 , Matt Verri

53 mins: Everything going down Arsenal's left wing.

Martinelli the main man at the moment, with Zinchenko and Trossard drifting out to help him.

No sign of Saka getting involved since the break.

Arsenal 1-0 Burnley

16:12 , Matt Verri

50 mins: Seven Arsenal corners in the first-half and they have their first of the second period. Trossard's cut-back is hacked behind.

Taken short, Arsenal back in the attack and Martinelli has space out wide. Played to the back post, Gabriel thinks he's been shoved as he jumped... referee doesn't.

Arsenal 1-0 Burnley

16:09 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Seconds into the second-half and Burnley have a corner, Koleosho direct straight from kick-off.

Arsenal deal with that though, early scare seen off.

Back underway!

16:07 , Matt Verri

Second half up and running at the Emirates!

Dynamic duo!

15:59 , Matt Verri

Trossard now has six goals for Arsenal this season., and all six have been assisted by Saka!

Fair to say the two of them enjoy playing with each other.


Simon Collings at the Emirates Stadium

15:56 , Matt Verri

The hosts score at the perfect time just before the break. No more than they deserve really, after dominating so much of the play.

Burnley have been well organised on the whole and Raya made a great save at 0-0.

HT: Arsenal 1-0 Burnley

15:51 , Matt Verri

And that's half-time.

Couple of minutes of treatment for Trossard and he'll now have another 15.

Remains to be seen whether he comes back out for the second-half, but he has scored the opening goal.

Simon Collings at the Emirates Stadium

15:49 , Matt Verri

Very brave play from Trossard there, who was absolutely clattered by the post and Trafford.

Seems okay to carry on for now. Arsenal will hope he gets to half-time and can be assessed then.

GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 Burnley | Leandro Trossard 45'

15:48 , Matt Verri


Long spell of Arsenal possession and it pays off.

Ball whipped into the middle, Saka's header loops up and Trossard turns it home. Took a big hit in the process.

Simon Collings at the Emirates Stadium

15:45 , Matt Verri

Havertz has had the odd nice moment, but he is just lacking that killer touch or instinct in the box.

A few times the final ball or shot has let him down.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:43 , Matt Verri

40 mins: Hosts could really do with a goal before half-time.

Frustration starting to grow inside the stadium, as Burnley keep the Gunners at bay.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:39 , Matt Verri

36 mins: Arsenal really should have made more of that.

Rice wins the ball back high up the pitch, Havertz driving into space. He looks to play it wide to Martinelli, Trossard takes it though.

Attack slows down, Trossard turns back before firing at goal from distance. Tipped over.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:37 , Matt Verri

34 mins: Another Arsenal corner coming up. Can they finally turn one of these into a goal?

Not yet. Flicked away and Burnley continue to hold firm.

Saka with a great delivery once more, Havertz has a big opportunity at the near post but he powers the header wide.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:32 , Matt Verri

29 mins: Arsenal swinging a fair few crosses into the middle - think that will suit Burnley just fine.

Trossard probably not going to be winning many headers...

Simon Collings at the Emirates Stadium

15:31 , Matt Verri

Zinchenko has struggled in recent weeks, but he is looking a lot more like himself today.

He's getting into those pocket of spaces in midfield and dominating play.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:28 , Matt Verri

25 mins: Feels like the opening goal is coming...

Lovely footwork from Zinchenko to flick the ball through to Saka. Drilled low into the middle, Trossard crowded out before Havertz has a shot blocked.

One-way traffic now.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:26 , Matt Verri

23 mins: Burnley lose the ball and for once Arsenal have space to attack into.

Martinelli plays the ball through to Saka in a central position, he goes down after getting a shove in the box... appeals waved away.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:23 , Matt Verri

21 mins: Arsenal starting to step it up. Havertz nearly found by Saka, ball comes back to the winger and he lashes a strike at goal. Tipped onto the bar and over - great save.

Pressure starting to build.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:21 , Matt Verri

19 mins: Burnley not making the same mistakes as Sevilla. Two or three defenders rushing out to close Martinelli down.

Zinchenko whips a cross to the back post, flicked behind for a corner with Havertz lurking.

Simon Collings at the Emirates Stadium

15:18 , Matt Verri

Burnley will be happy with this start. They are playing with two banks of four and stopping Arsenal getting any space.

Going to take something special to open them up.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:18 , Matt Verri

16 mins: Saliba has time on the halfway line, looks up and sees Rice has made a great run in behind.

Defender floats the ball over the top, can't quick pick Rice out.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:15 , Matt Verri

13 mins: Not a huge amount of pace in the match, Arsenal happy to control things by just keeping the ball.

No sign yet of Martinelli having an impact, a few days on from when he ran Sevilla ragged.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:12 , Matt Verri

10 mins: Saka has looked sharp early on, he wins a corner for his side after another bright run.

Arsenal try something clever, with Martinelli lurking on the edge of the area, but Burnley read it and it's a bit of a mess from the Gunners.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

15:10 , Matt Verri

8 mins: First sign of a Burnley attack and it's a good one.

They work it nicely in midfield, referee gets in the way a bit but the visitors have space to drive into. Amdouni lets fly from distance, Raya turns it behind for a corner.

Gabriel again wins the header, this time in his own box to clear.

Corner for the Gunners.

15:05 , Matt Verri

As ever, Zinchenko drifting into midfield from left-back. Tomiyasu playing as an orthodox full-back this afternoon, replacing White on the right.

Simon Collings at the Emirates Stadium

15:04 , Matt Verri

That Spurs result has lifted the mood here.

Arsenal fans gleefully singing: "Tottenham get battered everywhere they go."


15:02 , Matt Verri

We're up and running at the Emirates!

Here we go!

14:58 , Matt Verri

Teams are out onto the pitch in north London, handshakes done.

We'll have a minute's silence and The Last Post played ahead of kick-off.

Arsenal in the market for midfielder...

14:51 , Matt Verri

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is attracting interest from Juventus ahead of the January transfer window, but the Italian side are expected to push ahead with a move for Kalvin Phillips instead.

Partey has been on Juve's radar since the summer, but there are concerns he will not be fully fit by January after undergoing a minor procedure on his thigh earlier this month. The 30-year-old sustained the injury during training in October and is expected to be out until the new year.

The news is a blow to Arsenal, who may now dip into the transfer market to bolster midfield options. The Gunners will be light on midfielders then due to the Africa Cup of Nations, which both Mohamed Elneny and Partey will hope to be a part of.

Arsenal are also interested in adding a new attacker, but it is unlikely they would have the funds to sign one as well as a midfielder.

Arteta sends Ramsdale message

14:45 , Matt Verri

Mikel Arteta has told Aaron Ramsdale not to rush any decision around his Arsenal future amid fears he could lose his place in the England squad ahead of next summer’s Euros.

David Raya has overtaken Ramsdale as Arsenal’s No1 since joining in the summer and the England goalkeeper has made three appearances since the start of September.

The 25-year-old was on Thursday included in England’s latest squad, but Gareth Southgate said he cannot guarantee Ramsdale a place in the England squad for Euro 2024 if he does not get back into the Arsenal team.

That has led to speculation Ramsdale could ask to leave in January and asked about that possible scenario, Arteta said: “Well, first of all my door is open to speak about any player.

“We will always try to do our best to help them, but this is a team sport that needs 24 players that have to fulfil a role.

“And the role that you have in August, it might be very different to the one you have in March. So making early decisions, in my experience, is not something good at all and as well because the team has certain needs that has to be accomplished.

“And in order to do that you cannot do it with six, 10 or 14 players. It is impossible. So you need everyone and Aaron has a really important role in the team.”

Not long now!

14:38 , Matt Verri

Just over 20 minutes to go until we get up and running in north London.

Arsenal have suffered three defeats this season - all have come on the road. They have been really impressive at home all campaign.

They will go level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table, for now, if they beat Burnley. Just a six-goal win needed to go above Pep Guardiola's side...

Drama in the early kick-off!

14:32 , Matt Verri

Good news for Arsenal fans already today.

Spurs have just conceded in the 97th-minute to Wolves, they have fallen to a 2-1 defeat.

Victory for the Gunners this afternoon will see them go above their big rivals.

14:25 , Matt Verri

Arsenal look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League...

Arteta explains absences at the back

14:20 , Matt Verri

"Ben White finished the game against Sevilla with some issues and hasn’t had enough time to recover.

"Cedric has been ill and hasn’t made the squad today.”

Stage is set!

14:13 , Matt Verri

Absolutely perfect afternoon in north London...

Saka fit for Gunners

14:08 , Matt Verri

Big boost for Arsenal - Bukayo Saka is fit and starts on the right wing this afternoon.

No Ben White though, meaning Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is fit himself, shifts over to right-back. Eddie Nketiah is named on the bench, as Leandro Trossard leads the line.

Burnley unchanged from the side beaten by Crystal Palace. Josh Cullen only on the bench as he returns from suspension.

Arsenal youngster involved?

13:53 , Matt Verri

Bradley Ibrahim - captain for Arsenal's FA Youth Cup run - looks set to be in the squad this afternoon.

He's posted a picture of his shirt on social media, so can expect him to be on the bench.

Arteta sets lofty points target

13:44 , Matt Verri

Mikel Arteta has reminded his Arsenal side that the title race is a marathon and not a sprint after falling behind Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side went top of the Premier League table last week after the rest of the top four, including Arsenal, all dropped points.

Arteta has told his squad not to panic, though, and revealed that he believes it will take 96 to 100 points to win the title this season.

“We cannot be looking at other teams when we have played 11 games,” said Arteta.

“This a long marathon and things are going to change and momentum is going to shift. But in this league, you’re going to need 96 to 100 points to win it.

"When you’re going to get them is a different story, but this is the target."


Moyes supports Arsenal and Arteta

13:36 , Matt Verri

David Moyes has defended Mikel Arteta over his furious VAR rant and suggested Arsenal’s much-ridiculed statement is proof of the club’s backing of the Spaniard.

Arteta blasted the Premier League’s use of VAR “embarrassing” and “a disgrace” after Anthony Gordon’s controversial winner for Newcastle in last weekend’s meeting was allowed to stand.

The Gunners boss was heavily criticised for his outburst but, the following day, the club took the unusual - and derided - step of releasing a statement in which it “wholeheartedly” backed Arteta’s comments and bemoaned “yet more unacceptable refereeing and VAR errors”.

“I think there will be a lot of people who would disagree but I'll tell you one thing: the football club showed that they were really supporting their manager and that's a really important thing,” Moyes said.

“They stood behind their manager. That will give the manager and the players a big help.”

Odegaard absence hits Arsenal hard

13:26 , Matt Verri

With football's busy festive period fast approaching, at the top of Mikel Arteta's wishlist will be having Martin Odegaard fit and firing again.

Arsenal have lacked creativity in attack this season, and it is no coincidence that has come at the same time as Odegaard struggling.

The midfielder has missed Arsenal's past two games after being injured in training this time last week.

Odegaard is hoping he will be fit enough to return for the home match against Burnley on Saturday, but if not he should be back in action after the international break.

The absence of Odegaard has been keenly felt, perhaps more so than others, and this past month has been a frustrating time for him as he has battled fitness issues.

Arteta might get the call-up...

13:16 , Matt Verri

Thomas Partey and Emile Smith Rowe out, Martin Odegaard a doubt, questions over Kai Havertz's form...

Time for a new face in midfield this afternoon?

Mikel Arteta looks ready to step up himself...

Hope for Burnley?

13:08 , Matt Verri

Burnley have only lost of the last five matches between these two sides.

There's only been four goals across those five games, so hopefully we get something slightly more entertaining this afternoon.

The Clarets drew 0-0 at the Emirates in January 2022, and picked up three points in north London in December 2020. Impressive recent record!

Rice backs Arteta over rant

13:00 , Matt Verri

Declan Rice insists that the Arsenal players loved Mikel Arteta’s outburst after their defeat by Newcastle and says his touchline antics galvanise the team.

Arteta called Anthony Gordon's winning goal an “absolute disgrace” and issued a scathing attack on referees.

The Arsenal boss has been criticised for his rant and was labelled “a Mercedes version of Neil Warnock” by Ref Support UK, a charity that represents referees.

Arteta could face action from the FA for his comments - which were supported in a public statement by Arsenal - but Rice said players like “how passionate he is”.

Asked about the manager's post-Newcastle outburst, Rice said: “We love it. I think you see how passionate he is. He sometimes gets criticised for how he is on the sidelines, but he is living the game through us.

“He’s so energetic and the way he speaks, he’s like a teacher the way he is in the changing room with us - and that really fires us up for the game and I think that’s what he’s really good at.”

Standard Sport prediction

12:53 , Matt Verri

There were signs that Arsenal's forward stars were starting to find form again in midweek, though they did benefit from the space Sevilla allowed them.

Even with the Gunners not firing on all cylinders, this should be a comfortable afternoon for them. No side has scored fewer Premier League goals than Burnley this season, and only Sheffield United have conceded more. That's not a great combination.

Arsenal to win, 2-0.

Burnley team news

12:46 , Matt Verri

Burnley will be without Lyle Foster, who is out for an indefinite period of time due to a recurrence of a mental health issue.

Aaron Ramsey is a major doubt with a knock, but Josh Cullen is expected to be back in the starting lineup after missing the loss to Crystal Palace last weekend through suspension.

Arsenal team news

12:39 , Matt Verri

Arsenal could be without eight first-team players this afternoon.

Emile Smith Rowe (knee), Jurrien Timber (knee) and Thomas Partey (thigh) will all definitely miss the game at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners could also be without Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard and Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Odegaard has missed the last two games and he faces a race against time to be fit for the weekend. Jesus has been out since October 24, although he has been called up by Brazil for qualifiers later this month. Nketiah missed Wednesday’s win over Sevilla.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is pushing to come in at left-back and may get his wish as Tomiyasu went off with a knock at half-time in midweek.

Saka did not train on Thursday after coming off injured, but he is pushing to play and is keen to do so.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-3-3): Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Havertz, Jorginho, Rice; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli
