Emery to pair Iwobi, Aubameyang against Burnley

Alex Iwobi could be set for a recall after being named on the bench last time as Arsenal aims to end the Premier League season on a high when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

According to, Unai Emery may decide to drop Alexandre Lacazette for Iwobi who has played 34 matches for Arsenal this season and scoring three in the league.

This would therefore, give Iwobi the opportunity of pairing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang upfront.

Although he failed to make the starting line up for the Gunners Europa League semi final matches against Valencia, Iwobi has played 10 matches and scored once.

Aubameyang whose hattrick fired Arsenal to the Europa final is still gunning for the Golden Boot with 20 goals at the moment and third behind ahead Sergio Aguero and Mohammed Salah.
