Nice to see Arsene Wenger choose a strong line up this afternoon, I assume the seven day breaks between games has influenced his decision. In come Flamini, Rosicky and Monreal which allows Coquelin, Cazorla and Mertesacker can drop down to the bench and get some much needed rest ahead of our league fixture against Aston Villa.
The goalkeeper situation was one to keep an eye on and now we have our answer. Szczesny starts between the sticks. Mesut Özil and Theo Walcott both start as expected. It will be interesting to see whether or not we stick to the 4-1-4-1 or if we adjust our system to get Mesut back into the middle. I don't see it to be honest.
Hopefully we can continue where we left off at City and get into the next round.
Post match podcast, Q&A and match thoughts later and tomorrow.
Confirmed Line Up:
Subs: Martinez, Mertesacker, Bellerin, Coquelin, Cazorla, Alexis, Akpom
