Arsène Wenger has explained how he will rotate his side for the FA Cup Third Round tie at Burnley on Sunday.
 
Emmanuel Adebayor (hamstring), Alex Hleb (ankle) and Robin van Persie (muscular) are injured, Mathieu Flamini is suspended while Gael Clichy and Cesc Fabregas will be rested. Theo Walcott's shoulder injury will be considered on Saturday.
 
Nicklas Bendtner is back after suspension. Lassana Diarra, Abou Diaby and Denilson are vying for places in midfield. Jens Lehmann will start.
 
"Robin van Persie is still out," said Wenger at his pre-match press conference. "Mathieu Flamini is suspended. Theo Walcott has a little shoulder problem that we will assess tomorrow.
 
"We will rest some players who have played a few games. I might rest Fabregas and Alex Hleb has a little problem with his ankle. Emmanuel Adebayor will be rested because of his hamstring.  Clichy will be rested aswell.
 
"Nicklas Bendtner is back after suspension so he is available again. Denilson, Diaby and Diarra are in contention."
