E. Nketiah
A. Lacazette
Arsenal
89' Lacazette is the one who'll go off for Arsenal. Nketiah replaces him for the last few minutes.
87' The flag goes up for a Burnley free-kick. Arsenal are preparing their final substitution. Unsure what good it will do at this stage.
86' Bellerin skips past Taylor and fizzes a cross in. Lowton's body shape is all wrong and he only narrowly avoids knocking it into his own net. As it stands, it's an Arsenal corner.
84' McNeil attempts an scissored volley as Cork keeps in the ball near the byline and hangs it up into the centre. It's ambitious but not quite on target.
83' Arsenal are getting closer too. Lacazette creates enough space for himself to get a shot away in the box. It's blocked and loops up into the hands of Pope.
J. Tarkowski
Yellow Card
Burnley
82' Tarkowski is booked for a foul after Burnley win a corner.
80' Both sides just haven't troubled each other's goalkeepers enough today. Burnley and Arsenal have both had 13 shots now, but only two on target each.
78' The crowd can't believe it! McNeil rises high in the box and nods down to Rodriguez. Rodriguez cannons a shot off the crossbar which bounces down right onto the goalline and Leno swipes it away. Nine times out of 10, that goes in. That's the closest we've come to a goal yet!
77' Arsenal have had 78% possesson in the last 10 minutes. They haven't been able to do very much with it.
76' Aubameyang nods just wide! Lacazette holds the ball up to the left of Burnley's box and elects to curl a cross in himself. He finds Aubameyang whose header fizzes past the left-hand post. 
75' Arsenal are trying their best but are finding Burnley too hard to break down. Bellerin gets forward and checks inside onto his left foot into the box. The Spaniard aims for the top left corner but doesn't get the angle right.
73' David Luiz challenges full pelt for the next Arsenal corner. Pope clatters the Brazilian while punching away and nearly lands on him accidentally for good measure. The centre-back's fine after a few seconds of treatment.
71' Arsenal get a corner down their left. Torreira's effort lands to Willock whose cross in is headed out. David Luiz's follow-up shot is blocked.
70' Pope bypasses the midfield with a powerful pass forward. Mustafi rushes back to sweep up with Wood close behind him.
69' Arsenal look to have survived the Burnley onslaught for now. Martinelli takes on Lowton and almost beats him but can't stop the ball going out for a Burnley goal-kick.
67' Arsenal are deciding that speculative shots are better than none at all. Willock is next to boom high and wide from distance.
66' Arsenal get a free-kick as Hendrick is offside. Torreira goes for goal from well outside the box but his dipping effort is nothing that Pope can't handle.
64' Rodriguez snatches at Westwood's pass into the box and watches his shot roll wide. It's hard to see where a winner will come from as things stand.
J. Willock
M. Özil
Arsenal
63' Arsenal substitution. Ozil trudges off. He's replaced by Willock.
62' Arsenal look vaguely threatening on the few occasions they're getting forward. Mee concedes a corner for Arsenal but Ozil's delivery doesn't cause much worry. It looks like Arsenal are preparing a change.
61' Burnley are ahead on possession so far in this half - 55% to Arsenal's 45%. Their last seven shots in this match have been headers. Aerial bombardment hasn't worked for Burnley so far, but it still might.
60' How many chances do Burnley want? Taylor gets forward down the left and passes back to McNeil. McNeil's ball in finds Hendrick at the far post but the Irishman's header doesn't hit the target either.
58' Westwood whips in the free-kick from the left straight into the corridor of uncertainty between Leno and his defenders. Mee heads wide from the left of the six-yard box.
L. Torreira
Yellow Card
Arsenal
57' Arsenal have struggled to handle Burnley for the past few minutes. Torreira slides in on McNeil to earn himself a yellow card.
56' Burnley fluff a decent chance! The free-kick comes in and Tarkowski and Mee are queueing up to head it in at the far post! In the end, Tarkowski makes contact but can only fire it wide of the post. Arsenal have been warned now.
G. Xhaka
Yellow Card
Arsenal
55' Xhaka is booked for a poor foul on Lowton down Burnley's right. What can the home side do here?
54' Arsenal enjoy a rare touch in Burnley's box as Martinelli twists and turns. The Brazilian can't get a clean shot at goal though and his effort's blocked.
53' Hendrick's cross into the box is anxiously headed away by Bellerin. It rolls towards the far corner. McNeil swings it in again and Wood's header is blocked. Burnley are getting closer to scoring.
52' Wood chases down Westwood's ball over the top and Bellerin nips in. Both sides have been defensively solid so far, but it doesn't make for the best spectacle.
50' Westwood angles a nice ball down the right to Hendrick. Burnley bombard Arsenal's box with crosses for a bit until Wood is called offside.
48' Guendouzi misses a defensive header and Rodriguez nips in behind him to win it. Fortunately for Arsenal, Westwood's follow-up pass is awry.
47' Dyche remonstrates with the officials after Westwood is judged to have fouled Guendouzi. If any team are up for a scrap of a game, it's Burnley.
46' We're back underway here. By the way, Arsenal have had just 60 shots in the Premier League since Arteta was appointed as boss - the joint-fewest in the league in that time along with Crystal Palace. That sums up Arsenal's problem at the moment.
L. Torreira
B. Saka
Arsenal
46' Arsenal make a substitution at half-time. Saka's injury has got the better of him. Torreira comes on for him.

45' + 2' HALF-TIME: BURNLEY 0-0 ARSENAL
45' + 1' There'll be one additional minute of this for now. With both sides mustering just one shot on target each until that Mee chance, we probably don't need it.
45' Hendrick's free-kick finds Mee in the box. His header is straight at Leno. Rodriguez pokes his foot at the rebound but can't get enough power on it. Leno snaffles it up.
28' Arsenal are back on the ball. Mustafi is closed down quickly by Rodriguez and it ends in an Arsenal throw. The visitors suddenly aren't finding things as easy.
26' Burnley make progress down their left and win a succession of throws, all of which Taylor takes. They eventually work it back to Tarkowski. His direct pass is headed away and Leno claims Westwood's follow-up.
24' Saka raises his hand and sits down on the turf. He's still struggling with the effects of that early challenge from Lowton. It looks like he might have to be replaced. He soldiers on for now.
22' Burnley deal with the corner and Guendouzi bounces an effort wide from range. It looks to have taken a deflection off Hendrick, so Arsenal try again. Mustafi heads over from Ozil's corner.
21' Arsenal are taking plenty of risks in passing the ball out of their own box. They get away with it and Martinelli finds Ozil on the edge of the box, who shoots. Lacazette swings at the rebound but is taken out from behind by Tarkowski in the nick of time. Arsenal corner.
20' Leno tips the corner over the bar. It'll be another Burnley corner from the opposite side. This time Leno elects to punch and Arsenal hack it away. Burnley are slowly growing into this.
18' Chance for Burnley! Wood chests down a direct pass and lays it off for Rodriguez who unleashes a daisy-cutter that looks destined for the bottom left corner. Leno dives to his right to keep it out. Burnley get their first corner of the game.
17' Bellerin looks down the line for Martinelli but Taylor is right in place to intercept. Arsenal are in control of this game but aren't threatening the home side too much yet.
15' Burnley are showing in glimpses that they can threaten Arsenal. First, Leno deals with a Hendrick cross from the right, then Wood bursts in the box and tries to flick the ball past an onrushing Leno but the keeper manages to smother it.
14' Chance for Arsenal! David Luiz's long pass over the top finds Aubameyang who's beaten the offside trap. The Gabonese is through on goal and looks certain to score but horribly hashes his shot, firing wide of the near post. Dear oh dear.
13' Guendouzi rolls the ball forward to Lacazette. Lacazette attempts an around-the-corner pass for Aubameyang  but Arsenal's captain can't quite latch onto it.
12' Arsenal have had 85% possession in these opening 12 minutes. You suspect that'll be the case for most of this game.
11' Hendrick takes on Saka down the right but finds his path blocked. David Luiz promptly gets rid. It's easy to see why Saka has become Arsenal's first-choice left-back recently.
10' David Luiz booms one of his long-distance passes towards Martinelli who's in space on the right flank. The Brazilian can't control this one, though. It'll be a Burnley throw.
8' Burnley put some nice interplay together. Westwood's pass in midfield is lax but the home side get away with it and Rodriguez gets into the box. The striker teases Mustafi with a few stepovers before trying to find his strike partner Wood but Saka is there to intercept.
6' The two sides take turns to win the ball off one another in midfield until Bellerin gets the chance to gallop forward with it. Saka fires a wicked cross towards the far post which Burnley just about deal with.
5' Ozil whips a cross in with his wand of a left foot and Burnley successfully clear. The home side are still finding their way into the game.
4' Arsenal take the corner short. Ozil delivers a floater into the box and it's headed out for a throw. Saka skips past Lowton and gets taken out by the full-back's trailing leg. Ozil will take the free-kick.
3' Burnley's attack breaks down and Martinelli holds the ball up on the right flank. The ball's worked wide left to Saka and Taylor nods the teenager's cross out for a corner with Martinelli lurking.
1' Arsenal start brightly as they work the ball out from the back, David Luiz attracting healthy boos. Ozil finds Aubameyang wide left and he hangs the ball into the box for Lacazette, who heads wide. Good early chance for the visitors.
1' Off we go then!
