- Arsenal vs Burnley clash will kickoff Premier League match day 2 actions
- The Gunners are hoping to maintain their dominance over the Clarets
- Unai Emery's men have not lost any of their last ten matches to Sean Dyche's side
Arsenal welcome Burnley to the Emirates Stadium in their first Premier League home game of the season on Saturday, August 17.
It would be recalled that the Gunners kicked off their 2019-20 season with a slim victory over Newcastle United at the Saint James' Stadium last weekend.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the only goal of the match in the 58th minute having failed to find the back of the net all through the first half f the game.
Coach Unai Emery's men will however hope they can maintain their winning status as well as give their fans something to cheer as this season progresses in style.
It is confirmed that summer signing Kieran Tierney will not be available until sometime in October as he is recovering from a groin injury.
Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka, Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are doubtful for the game, although, the north Londoners are hoping their Swiss midfielder can recover well ahead of the game.
Also on the injury list for the Gunners is Dinos Mavropanos, who was also ruled out for groin injury and will not make a return until October.
Danny Drinkwater will not be a part of the team as he continues in his race to fitness after making a switch from Chelsea this transfer window.
Ivorian star Nicolas Pepe could be making his first start for the club in the game while David Luis, who was unused in their last match could also feature in the game.
Burnley thrashed Southampton 3-0 in their opening game at the Turf Moor last weekend and Sean Dyche's men will face a more difficult opposition in the Gunners.
The Clarets have lost all of their last ten matches against Arsenal and they will hope they can end their losing streak today.
Charlie Taylor has been given the green light for the match but it is left to the coach to have him in his team after missing Southampton's win.
But Robbie Brady (rib) and Steven Defour (knee and calf) are ruled out of the crunch clash at the Emirates Stadium.
