The players include Rob Holding and Mohamed Elneny. Rob Holding is said to still be recovering from a knee injury he sustained in the game against Norwich while Elneny is yet to recover from a hamstring problem.
On the other hand, Granit Xhaka will also miss the match due to suspension.
These injuries are surely a big setback for Mikel Arteta's side. However, the Spanish tactician has enough firepower to name a very strong starting XI without all these players.
Here's how Arsenal could line up against The Clarets come Saturday. Check it out below:
Mikel Arteta is expected to stick to his favored '4-2-3-1' formation.
Ben White and Pablo Mari are expected to keep their places in central defense while Tomiyasu and Kieran Tierney also keep their places as full-backs.

Aaron Christopher Ramsdale is likely to start ahead of Leno between the sticks.
The duo of Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Albert Sambi Lokonga should start in the double-pivot positions while Martin Odegaard plays in the attacking midfield position.

If Thomas Partey is certified fit to play on Saturday, he could also earn a spot in the midfield.
As for the front-line, Bukayo Saka and Pepe should start in the wings while Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang keeps his place as a center-forward.

Speaking to the press earlier today, Mikel Arteta seems to be wary of the possible threat posed by Burnley.
He was quoted as saying, "We know how tough it is to go to Burnley, we know the game we can expect there and we will be prepared for that."
