Fit-again Burnley striker Peter Crouch, whose contract expires this summer, will hope to make his first appearance since March.
Full-back Phil Bardsley has recovered from a gashed leg and is also vying for a recall.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is available for Arsenal after missing their last league game through suspension.
Aaron Ramsey, Denis Suarez, Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are all still injured.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
While victory in Baku would render their final position in the Premier League table academic, defeat to Chelsea and suddenly their pre-season plans could alter dramatically (and just ask Burnley how demanding Europa League qualification in July can be!).
It means this game has genuine significance, as anything other than an Arsenal win could allow Manchester United to take fifth place off them and, with it, possible automatic entry into the Europa League group stage.
VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT
Burnley manager Sean Dyche: “I think it’s impossible to not end on a positive note because of what’s happened in the second half of the season.
“There have been a couple of blips but, mainly, they have been good performances.
“If we can get a result on the back of that it’s always good to beat the top teams, particularly at home.”
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery: “I am going to decide with the players who are hungry and in good physical condition to play this match.
“We struggled a lot here against [Burnley]. I remember this match and I watched it two weeks ago when they drew with Chelsea. It was a very tough match against Chelsea and I’m expecting the same on Sunday.
“We know it’s going to be a difficult match with long balls, second actions and set-pieces, so we need to defend well in these situations.”
Arsenal have struggled on the road and I cannot imagine they are looking forward to this trip too much.
Burnley kept Manchester City out at Turf Moor for an hour at the end of April but I don’t think the Clarets will sit in like that against the Gunners. Why would you?
Arsenal’s big weakness is at the back and this will be another test for their defence.
- Burnley have lost nine successive meetings with Arsenal in all competitions – only against Wolves have they suffered a longer run of defeats, losing 11 in a row between 1987 and 2002.
- The Gunners have won 1-0 in the last three league encounters at Turf Moor, scoring 90th-minute winners in each of their last two visits.
- Burnley have not beaten Arsenal in a league match since a 1-0 victory at Highbury in 1974.
- The Clarets have scored 44 league goals this season, a club record in the Premier League, but they have also conceded 65 times, 26 more than in the 2017-18 campaign.
- They are trying to avoid an unwanted club record of 10 home league defeats in a season.
- Burnley have lost their last two Premier League games on the final day 2-1 despite taking the lead in both matches (against West Ham and Bournemouth).
- Peter Crouch has scored on the final day of six Premier League seasons, including each of the last two – only Andrew Cole, Les Ferdinand and Teddy Sheringham have better overall records.
- Arsenal have ended the last seven Premier League seasons with a victory, and have not lost on the final day since a 2-1 defeat at Birmingham in 2005.
- The Gunners could go five league games without a win for the first time since a run of five successive draws in January and February 2009.
- They could also finish below Tottenham in three consecutive league campaigns for the first time since a run of nine seasons from 1959-60 to 1967-1968.
- Arsenal have kept just two clean sheets in their last 28 top-flight away games, including only one this season (at Watford in April).
- They are one short of equalling the club record for most goals conceded in a Premier League campaign (51 last term).
- Should they concede two goals or more it will be their worst defensive record since the 1983-84 season, when they let in 60 in 42 matches).
- Granit Xhaka could make his 100th Premier League appearance, becoming the fifth Swiss player to reach that milestone after Stephane Henchoz, Philippe Senderos, Xherdan Shaqiri and Valon Behrami.
