Arsenal will play Burnley in the FA Cup on Saturday, and the Gunners will have their work cut out if Monday’s performance was anything to go by.

The Clarets were in superb form, scoring four times against Derby County to take all three points at Turf Moor and go to third in the table.

Burnley have won four of their last five games, and star striker Andre Gray was on hand to score his 15th Championship goal of the season in his 23rd appearance. Sam Vokes and Scott Arfield were also on the scoresheet in the second half, but will we see any of them at the weekend?

The third round tie that Burnley came through was away to Middlesbrough, who are one of the strongest teams in the Championship. Nonetheless, with promotion in his sights, Sean Dyche rotated heavily for that game. Only half the side to start against Derby County played in that FA Cup game, so we may see similar rotation again.

That means the places of Joey Barton, Andre Gray and Matt Lowton could be under threat and on this form the Gunners will hope so. Regardless, Dyche’s side will be incerdibly well organised and strong from dead ball situations so we will need to be at our very best regardless of how much Arsène Wenger changes the side.
