The Brazilian has struggled since signing for Arsenal last summer and, now he has finally found his feet, Arteta may be reluctant to drop him.
In defence, Hector Bellerin should return at right-back after being rested at Leicester and Cedric Soares could move to left-back so Kieran Tierney can have an afternoon off ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Olympiacos next week.
Rob Holding is another who will hope to start at Turf Moor. The defender suffered a concussion against Manchester City last month, but is now fit and training again.
Pablo Mari may well start alongside him at centre-back, with Gabriel Magalhaes and David Luiz expected to play against Olympiacos.
Arsenal predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Cedric; Ceballos, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Willian; Aubameyang.
