They must win at Turf Moor and hope that Champions League finalists lose Tottenham at home against Everton, with a swing of eight goals, to end Emery & # 39; s first season in the fourth.

Instead, their best chance to secure a Champions League return of their own is to win the Europa League, with Emery admitting that some of his stars will need a break this weekend.

& # 39; We came home at 6am (on Friday) and we canceled training, & # 39; it is important to rest, & # 39; he told arsenal.com.

& # 39; Saturday we are going to prepare for Sunday's game, but I will decide with the players who are hungry and in good physical condition to play this match. & # 39;

Arsenal beat Burnley 3-1 at Emirates Stadium earlier in the season, but were beaten by the Clarets and Emery expects another test this weekend.

& # 39; We have a lot of trouble here against Burnley. I remember this match and I saw it two weeks ago when they met Chelsea.

& # 39; It was a very tough match against Chelsea and I expect the same on Sunday in Burnley.

& # 39; We will play with the idea of ​​putting our game plan, our capacity and our team against them.

& # 39; We know it will be a difficult match with long balls, second actions and set pieces, so we need to defend well in these situations. & # 39;
