Unai Emery gave his Arsenal players a day off after reaching the Europa League final on Thursday.
The Gunners beat Valencia 4-2 in their semi-final second leg to set up a May 29 clash with Chelsea.
But a testing trip to Burnley awaits on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday, with Emery’s side expected to finish fifth. It would take an unlikely eight-goal swing for Arsenal to overtake fourth-placed Tottenham.
Emery told the club’s website: “We arrived home at 6am (on Friday) and we cancelled training because it’s important to rest.
“On Saturday, we are going to prepare for Sunday’s match but I am going to decide with the players who are hungry and in good physical condition to play this match.”

The Gunners secured a 3-1 win over Burnley at the Emirates in December thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double.
But Emery is expecting a tough test from the Clarets, who drew 2-2 with Arsenal’s Europa League final opponents Chelsea last month.
He added: “We struggled a lot here against Burnley. I remember this match and I watched it two weeks ago when they drew with Chelsea.
