Arsenal take on Burnley at the Emirates in the FA Cup as they look to become the first side since Blackburn in 1886  to win the cup three times in a row.

The Gunners have won the trophy for the last two years with Mesut Ozil playing a major role in both cup runs but Arsenal will be without their star man today.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has decided to rest Ozil ahead of the important Premier League match against Southampton next week.


The World Cup winner has 16 assists in the Premier League this season and is just four assists away from matching Henry’s record record tally of 20.
