Wigan-Arsenal Team Line-ups

Wigan-Arsenal Team Line-ups

Without Cesc Fabregas and Manuel Almunia, Sol Campbell is wearing the armband for the first time in about four years. The team he's leading out, however, is slightly less familiar with Craig Eastmond, Mikael Silvestre and Lukasz Fabianski standing in for Denilson in midfield, Thomas Vermaelen in defence and Manuel Almunia in goal respectively.

Here are the full squads playing at the DW Stadium today:

Wigan Starting Line-up
Kirkland, Melchiot, Gohouri, Bramble, Figueroa, Rodallega, Diame, Watson, McCarthy, N'Zogbia, Moreno

Wigan Substitutes
Stojkovic, Scharner, Scotland, Moses, Gomez, Sinclair, Boyce

Arsenal Starting Line-up
Fabianski, Sagna, Campbell, Silvestre, Clichy, Diaby, Rosicky, Eastmond, Nasri, Walcott, Bendtner

Arsenal Substitutes
Mannone, Traore, Eboue, Merida, Henderson, Vela, Van Persie

Come on you Gunners!

Sorry guys, just got around to putting up the teamsheets. Chat away! Hmmm end-of-season stuff so far, we need to up the tempo although it may be slightly tougher with the personnel today. We must see the likes of Rosicky and Diaby step up big time after the game at WHL.

Hi Guys. New member here. I was hoping that we could win this convincingly to make up on the goal difference a bit as I dont see us doing it in the remaining games. But I think this may well finish 1-0. Diaby and Walcott need to learn to pull the trigger at times as they got into a couple of decent positions but their indecisiveness lets them down. Still here's hoping for a goal before half time. AW should bring on RVP in the second half though.

Hey welcome TGB! Do check out the forums as well - we're chatting about this game and many other issues there. Yeah I was finding Theo and Diaby a bit frustrating to watch with their Hleb-esque reluctance to just shoot. Now Theo's playing a bit more naturally and when he thinks less and acts more intuitively and confidently, he looks better.

Agree TGB, our reluctance to shoot is infuriating at times. I don't think we have any chance of making up the goal difference anyway but hope we can grind out 3 wins and Chelsea and Man U drop points.

Hi All. Thanks GoonerLou will head over to the forums to check it out! A major problem is I can see Liverpool getting something against the Chavs at Anfield which could help our cause, but I dont see ManUre dropping too many points. Seeing them win a 19th title will be sickening.

Thanks Lou. It's been an enjoyable match so far from both teams. Nice finish by Theo. He needs to learn to shoot more when he gets in those positions.

No Eduardo today I see. Odd, Sweet goal by Theo just wish we was a bit more free flowing. Eastmond is really doing well.
