Arsene Wenger is really going for it tonight. As is often the case in these big games the Arsenal manager has thrown a curve ball. Lukas Podolski has been given a chance to shine against his old side. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has replaced Mathieu Flamini in the middle of the pitch and Santi Cazorla will start from the right but with plenty of interchanging you would imagine. There is no room for Tomas Rosicky but the other Thomas, Vermaelen comes in to solve our left back problem. Ok, try and solve our left back problem. Plus size fashion
It is safe to assume that he will be heavily targeted down that side, especially with Podolski in front of him. From a defensive stand point, it looks pretty weak on paper.
But hey, we are in a no lose situation. Let us play our game, hopefully an attacking one and let is grab that first goal. Do that and anything can happen.
