Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has been showing off his new boots.

Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has been showing off the new boots he will wear for the first time against Burnley this weekend.

Arteta is one of the most valuable players in Arsenal’s current team playing a key role in midfield as the side’s leader, ensuring that the Gunners retain their shape throughout important games.

He’s often criticised following poor Arsenal performances for his lack of speed around midfield, but he’s an important player for the job he does in terms of protecting the defence.

Arsenal go into the game against Burnley this weekend looking to back up a decent performance against Sunderland last time round where they won 2-0 after a frustrating home draw against Hull City which left Wenger furious after the game

The Spaniard could play as the sole holding player in front of the back four, with Wenger potentially holding back Mathieu Flamini for the Champions League game against Anderlecht next week.
