Arsene WengerWe are currently on a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions and momentum is building which is great to see.

Our next game sees our boys host Rovers tomorrow afternoon in the FA Cup, a game, on paper, we SHOULD win comfortably.

However, on Tuesday we face the first of our two clashes against in the Champions League. And although certain players are in form, Arsene Wenger will undoubtedly rest a few of them for the game against the German giants. I for one am for this, but I don’t want to see Wenger change the whole line-up. With all do respect, Blackburn aren’t a side that strike fear in me. However, they shouldn’t be taken lightly – after all, it is the FA Cup we are talking about.

So with the game against Bayern just around the corner, and taking to account current injuries and or suspensions, what should our starting line-up look like tomorrow afternoon?

Well here is how I would like to see Wenger set out the team:


Sagna          Mertesacker          Miquel          Monreal

Arteta          Ramsey


Walcott                                         Chamberlain


Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny are doubts, so will have to be partnered by Ignasi Miquel or Skeletor himself – the former would be the obvious choice. shifts back to his regular position and keeps his place in the side.

is 50/50 to be available so if he is sidelined I expect, and would like to see, is and dictate the game from midfield, with Tomas Rosicky, if he’s fit, to play in the role.

Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should occupy the wings and utilize their pace, with spearheading the attack once again.

So, who do you guys reckon should start for us against Blackburn?
