ARS vs BUR Dream11 : A tricky and defensively staunch Burnley side look to shut out an exemplary Arsenal outfit today
Just about managing to scamper through to a 1-0 win in their previous encounter, Arsenal were far from impressive in what was an extremely jittery three points for them. And the side are bound to regale us in a similar sojourn today as well when Burnley come visiting.
One of the most astute defensive setups in the league, keeping things intact at the back has seen Burnley flourish massively over the last couple of seasons. And they’ll enter the fray of today’s encounter with the same starter, one which augured extremely well in their opening fixture where they ended up routing Southampton 3-0.
While arsenal’s incredible slew of wordclass attacking players can’t be neglected, it’s the team composition which continues to be a question for the side. How and when the club will start fitting in Nicholas Pepe and Ceballos into the playing 11 will play heavily on the club’s mind ahead of today’s encounter, one they’ll look to use as an opportunity to tune things before their colossal face off against Liverpool.
With both the sides looking to make it two wins on the bounce today, expect this match to be a cracker of an encounter. While Arsenal should start off well, if Burnley are allowed to settle into their grove, the visiting side will make things extremely tentative for Arsenal in what should shape out to be a cracker of an encounter.

ARS vs BUR Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for ARS vs BUR Dream11
One thing which is clearly apparent making an advent into the encounter is the fact that Arsenal are going to do the bulk of the attacking in this one. It’s this narrative which makes Burnley’s Nick Pope the ideal choice to go ahead with for this encounter with the Burnley goal-keeper set to face an onslaught of shots and come up with some good save points.
Defenders for ARS vs BUR Dream11
A man of the match performance in the previous en counter, one where he added to his cleansheet ith an assist for Aubameyang see Ainsley Maitland-Niles become our first player to come in here. With arsenal always vulnerable at the back, it’s ideal to pick out players who are bound to contribute attackingly as well and the fullback becomes the right choice owing to that script. We have also opted for Nacho Monreal from the side while our lone pick from Burnley comes in the form of Erik Pieters.
We was pivotal in his side’s 3-0 in the first gameweek, registering two assists along with a cleansheet and will be required to provide service to Barnes this time around as well.
Midfielders for ARS vs BUR Dream11
We begin with the only pick we are bringing in from Burnley first with us opting for their CDM, Ashley Westwood for this encounter. The midfielder looks the most ideal pick from the side for this encounter with Burnley bound to sit in their own area for a majority of the encounter, a proposition which will see Westwood heavily involved in tackles and breaking up attacks.
Elsewhere, crafting a midfield from Arsenal was not so easy. The side will be incurring in a slew of changes for this one with several of their players available for selection in this encounter and with the side having one eye on their upcoming clash against Liverpool as well.
We’ve begun with Lucas Torreira from the side. The CDM didn’t get an outing in the previous encounter but should be in the starting 11 for this match and with him involved in taking corners as well, the prospect of an assist increases from him. We have decided to get in new signings Dani Ceballos and Nicholas Pepe as well for this one with Pepe looking likely to start after Mkhitaryan endured a horrid time against Newcastle.
Strikers for ARS vs BUR Dream11
With the two goals against Southampton, Ashley Barnes is our lone striker from Burnley. The striker is someone who always punches above his weight, someone ready to show the stomach for a fight and given Arsenal’s predicaments at the back, he could easily score one today as well.
Elsewhere from arsenal we have their goal scorer from the previous match, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang come in for us. Alexander Lacazette missed out on the last match but has recovered from an injury and should start this one, coming in as well for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Aubameyang is our captain while Lacazette is picked out as the vice-captain.
