Arsenal Line Up vs Sunderland

Arsenal Line Up vs Sunderland

Arsenal's starting line-up against Sunderland takes on a decidedly different look from the team that lost so embarrassingly to Porto in midweek.

Whether this is down to injury or form, one can't quite tell, but notable inclusions are Theo Walcott for a rare start, and and an even rarer (is that a word?) start for Silvestre.

Ramsey and Eboue both make the line up, whilst the hapless Almunia take the place of the hapless Fabianski.

Arsenal team in full:

Almunia
Eboue
Silvestre
Vermaelen
Clichy
Song
Ramsey
Fabregas
Nasri
Walcott
Bendtner

Substitutes:
Fabianski
Sagna
Campbell
Traore
Denilson
Rosicky
Vela

Is Sol injured? I thought he was our best player mid-week, bizare to see him benched if he isn't.

I'm guessing he's not quite ready to play the full 90 in such quick succession

It's not like he could be burnt out on football this season. When Wenger signed him he said he was fit, two games in a week after "casual" football shouldn't really be a problem if hus fitness was assessed properly before hand. Silvstre scares me.

well that's just it rocky, he hasn't been playing competitive football all season, therefore he doesn't have the stamina to play two consecutive games (I guess). And you're not as scared of Silvestre as Sunderland's strikers will be!!..... (well at least I tried). speaking of which, they're starting 3 strikers? a lot of room in the midfield for us now?...

Hmm a bit scary to see Silvestre in CB. Hopefully our mix of craft and pace will see us through, especially after the yet again encouraging result at yh Goodison. Very well done to Everton btw!!

And of course the commentator I have says 'well it shouldn't have taken so long for them to score.' will the media ever be complimentary of Arsenal ever again?

F*cking Cana. If Eboue's injured I'll be livid. There's aggresive, and then there's phycopathic.
