With Arsenal visiting Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon, and David Unsworth limping off in the awful 3-0 defeat at Blackpool, what side can the Clarets field?
So, with Owen Coyle fancing an ever growing up hill struggle to name a line-up, what team can Burnley expect to field when Premiership outfit Arsenal visit Turf Moor for the F.A. Cup Third Round?
Well, we know Clarke Carlisle will miss the game with a thigh injury, whilst Unsworth is having hamstring problems, so it is looking like Stephen Jordan will be lining up at left back, with Chris McCann and Stephen Calwell in the centre and Alexander out at right back.
Arsene Wenger has also come out this morning and said that he will be bringing the first team squad to East Lancashire for the game and WILL NOT be using his youngsters for the clash.
I'm really not sure how Eduardo will cope with Stephen Jordan's defensive abilities, I suspect that Jordan will use his pace and tactical genius to keep him quiet. Let alone how Sagna is going to be when Steve Jones comes on. God I feel sorry for Arsenal.
I am sat writing this whilst watching Arsenal beat West Ham on SkySports and i'll tell you something right now, if Arsenal play like this and we play like we did against Blackpool, with no effort, no commitment and no interest, then we could very well hit a double figured score line.
One positive is that Alan Mahon should return for the game, so baring that in mind, this is the team that is likely to feature against Arsenal on Sunday
Alexander Caldwell Jordan Harley
Elliott JOC Mahon Lafferty
Although I would be seriously tempted to bring Brian Jensen back in to the starting line-up, as I don't think that Gabor Kiraly has been performing to his best of late, but facing a Premiership side Kiraly would be the keeper that you wanted to start. It could be a tricky one.
