Burnley vs Arsenal team news: Arsene Wenger names same team that thrashed Liverpool... but Jack Wilshere not among substitutes

Wenger decides to keep a winning team

Arsene Wenger has named the same starting XI who dominated Liverpool at the Emirates last week.

That means Arsenal will continue in their 4-2-3-1 formation with Olivier Giroud spearheading what is a dominant side at the moment.

However, despite completing 90minutes for the reserves in mid-week, long-term injuries Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta, Abou Diaby and Mathieu Debuchy have not been named among the substitutes although they travelled with the team.

For Burnley, Sean Dyche has also kept the same XI that drew against fellow north Londoners Tottenham last week.
