Arsenal face Burnley on Sunday in what is the last game for the club before a mini-winter break and they jet off to Dubai for some much needed rest that has nothing at all to do with making more money.

So, who’s available, who’s not:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and David Luiz have both served their red card suspensions so are available for selection.

New boy, Pablo Mari should be available for selection but Cedric Soares has a knee injury and is currently being assessed by the club. Arteta referred to it as a ‘little issue’.

Shkodran Mustafi will not miss as long as was first feared but he won’t be back playing this weekend, that’s for sure. Sead Kolasinac has a thigh strain in his left leg but faces a fitness test ahead of the game.

Reiss Nelson will not feature as he has a tight hamstring. The club are hopeful he will return to training after the winter break.

Long-term absentees include: Calum Chambers (knee), Kieran Tierney (shoulder)
