Arsene Wenger has named a strong side for this afternoon’s game against Championship side Burnley with new signing Mohammed Elneny making his first start.

The Gunners boss has made ten changes after last Sunday’s 2-0 loss at home to champions Chelsea. David Ospina replaces Petr Cech in goal as Alexis Sanchez moves from the bench into the starting line-up.

Mohammed Elneny, who joined the club earlier this month, makes his first start since arriving from Basel and will be looking to impress.

Sean Dyche has named a near full strength side with only two changes. Joey Barton and Matthew Lowton move to the bench to be replaced by Tendayi Darikwa and Fredrik Ulvestad; the only difference to the side after their 4-1 win against Derby last weekend.

Today’s line up…

Arsenal: Ospina, Chambers, Gabriel, Koscielny, Gibbs, Coquelin, Elneny, Iwobi, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sánchez, Giroud

Subs: Rosicky, Arteta, Walcott, Monreal, Bellerin, Campbell, Cech

Burnley: Heaton, Darikwa, Keane, Mee, Ward, Boyd, Jones, Ulvestad, Arfield, Vokes, Gray

Subs: Lowton, Duff, Kightly, Barton, Taylor, Robinson, Hennings
