Mikel Arteta said Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Norwich was the climax of “the best week” of his career, so victory at Burnley – winless in their last 12 league games at home – would represent some epochal new lifetime high. Emile Smith Rowe could come into Arteta’s first XI after impressing as a substitute last Saturday. The big question for Sean Dyche, fresh from signing a new four-year contract, is whether to hand exciting left-back/winger Maxwel Cornet a debut as he searches for a first league win. It would be a risky, daring and intriguing move. Charlie Taylor at left-back it is then. Alex Reid
