Arsenal v Burnley preview

Team news ahead of Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between Arsenal and Burnley at the Emirates.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is likely to miss out because of a knee injury.

Defender Kieran Gibbs faces a fitness test for an unspecified problem, while Arsene Wenger has said winger Theo Walcott will not be rushed back despite his return from a serious knee injury.

Laurent Koscielny (Achilles), Mesut Ozil (knee), David Ospina (thigh), Yaya Sanogo (hamstring), Abou Diaby (calf), Olivier Giroud (fractured foot) and Mathieu Debuchy (ankle) are out.

Burnley midfielder Dean Marney is set to return from a hamstring problem.

Marney has trained all week and could go straight back into the side but the game again comes too soon for Steven Reid, who has only just returned to training after a groin problem.

Midfielder Matt Taylor's Achilles operation was a success but no date has yet been set for a possible return while striker Sam Vokes is still working his way back from a serious knee injury.
