Arsenal face Burnley at the Emirates Stadium in Saturday’s early kickoff with the Gunners looking to continue on from their opening day victory against Newcastle United.

Ahead of this weekend’s clash, Arsenal fans have been naming the one player they want to see start the game.

£72m club-record signing Pepe is the man they are desperate to see with many seeing the Burnley match as an ideal time to play him with tough fixtures against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool coming up.
