The youngest member of The 4th Official and an ardent Premier League fan who is basically obsessed with scouting young talents and is consumed by the idea of finding the perfect number 10.

Tenth-placed Arsenal will lock horns with Burnley at the Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, looking to pick up a win and improve upon their form in the Premier League.

Coming off the back of an embarrassing 4-0 away defeat, Sean Dyche will hope to secure a positive result against the Gunners. However, it’s certainly going to be an uphill task against Mikel Arteta’s men as they will be heading into the contest full of confidence after the 3-1 win over Leicester City last week.

The English tactician will probably opt for a 4-4-2 formation; however, he might keep changes to a minimum for the upcoming home encounter.

4-4-2 Burnley Predicted Lineup To Face Arsenal

Defence

Nick Pope is expected to start in goal for the Clarets, having conceded ten goals in his last seven league outings. Dyche could choose to field a back-four consisting of Charlie Taylor, Ben Mee, James Tarkowski and Matthew Lowton as they look to keep things solid at the back on Saturday.

However, their prime objective will be to keep Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang quiet throughout the ninety minutes.

Midfield

Jack Cork will partner with Ashley Westwood at the centre of the park; however, they might be assigned very different roles. The former should take up a more defensive position, shielding the back three, whereas the latter will stay central, dictating play with his ball-distribution.

Dwight McNeil and Josh Brownhill will occupy the wide positions, playing on the right and left-wing, respectively.

Dale Stephens will have to settle for a place on the bench and might come on in the latter stages of the game if needed.

Attack

Jay Rodriguez and Chris Wood will form the strike partnership for the home side upfront. The duo would be hoping to make the most out of their chances against the highly inconsistent Arsenal defence.

Matej Vydra might have to be content with a spot on the bench but could come on to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes.
