    We are well overdue a result against this lot! Had a lot of bad luck over the years but last season they beat us comfortably both games.

    Always think it's better to play the bigger teams at the start before they get into stride...heart says 1-1...head says 3-1 Arsenal.

    (Not so) fun fact...Arsenal are the only team in the league that we are yet to beat in our 6 seasons of PL football (except Norwich and Sheff Utd who we haven't played yet)

    Don't get beat and we're top of the league.

    Arsenal *should* win this comfortably but will be a totally different game to that v Newcastle. Higher impetus to break a team down at home, expect to see Ceballos to come in and do this. Arsenal’s defence coped well with Joelinton last week but the direct nature of Burnley will be a different issue. Still fancy an Arsenal win, but probably going to be tighter than the betting suggests. 2-1 Arsenal

    Good to see Willock and Nelson starting again, Luiz also starting

    Standard Arsenal - good in attack but cannot defend .

    Been impressed with Burnley. Arsenal aren't dealing with Wood and Barnes' physicality very well.

    Been ropey all game at the back, standard really. David Luiz playing the man on for the Burnley goal.

    Ceballos looks excellent.

    Ceballos has stood out, poor for the equaliser though.

    Always frustrating to lose the lead against sides like Burnley.

    Ceballos loses the ball, presses like a demon to get it back and then Auba does the rest.

    I know this is early and knee jerky, but first impressions are: Ceballos looks like a Pep player. And if I was Pep, I'd be keeping an eye on him for next summer.

    If Ceballos starts most games he'll be a dream team bargain. 5.5mill m'lud.

    Ceballos does seem a bit too Hollywood though.

    Burnley look decent. Could be another 7th place push for them.
