Martinelli and Smith Rowe both start
Arsenal are preparing to host Burnley in one of the Premier League’s first kick-offs on Sunday afternoon.
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners will be looking to get back to winning ways after failing to beat Manchester City in their last domestic outing.
Elsewhere, although Burnley are currently at the bottom of the Premier League table, with up to six league matches on the way, it is too early to consider the Clarets’ odds on favorites to be relegated.

Nevertheless, manager Sean Dyche won’t want to leave the Emirates Stadium empty-handed.
Ahead of the important game, which could see Arsenal overtake Manchester United and move into fourth place, Arteta has named a very attacking starting line-up, including both Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe in the lead, alongside French striker Alexandre Lacazette.
