Arsenal make weekend trip to Turf Moor

Following the Gunners finally getting their season up and running with a nervy 1-0 win over Norwich last Saturday, they travel to Lancashire this weekend to take on Sean Dyche’s Burnley side.

The Clarets have endured an equally tricky start to the season, losing three of their opening four encounters and conceding a late equaliser to Leeds United to turn a potential three points into just a solitary one.

WHAT A STRIKE 🚀

As a result, the game has already taken on added significance for both sides as an early clash at the bottom of the Premier League table, with defeat for either side likely to see them slide further towards the relegation zone.

Arsenal youngster spotted in training

Ahead of the encounter between the two bottom-half sides, Arsenal fans have spotted another academy product training with the first team, following in the footsteps of Charlie Patino and Kido Taylor-Hart.

The man in question? In form youth team striker Khayon Edwards. The 18 year-old has netted an impressive six goals in four encounters for the U-18s so far this season, form which has duly been recognised.

Given the strength in his position (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun are all ahead of the youngster should Mikel Arteta be picking a man to lead the line), it is unlikely that Gunners fans will see him feature against Burnley, although a space in the squad for the Carabao Cup tie against Wimbledon could be up for grabs.

Gunners fans, would you like to see him given a chance in the Cup?
