RVP playing in the midfield in Cesc's role? I suppose he has the talent.

Looks like 4-4-2 with vela and Theo wide.

Agreed Iceman, realised that was probably the case after actually thinking about it... The first time we've played that formation in 2 seasons, right?

He knows Wigan will attack so he has gone for a very attacking team, looks good.

Awful miss from Bendtner. Free header from 3 yards out and he completely misses the ball. Wouldn't normally laugh at him but he deserves it after his recent comments about deserving to start more games.

Oh dear. Another awful miss. Brilliant van Persie backheel sets up Vela one on one with the 'keeper, and, of all people, Carlos Vela misses a chip.

So much for "live audio on ATVO or the match highlights will have to suffice" for those of us not at the Grove. I wonder how everybody here is watching the match? Lol.

Agree he is feeling his way back but Theo must improve on his decision making. This game was tailor made for him to enjoy, but he is coming short. Good to be 1 up and we haven't even hit 2nd gear yet.

Vela does deserve a goal now, just on the number of misses he's had tonight; and RvP too, for his matured display.

Jay Emmanuel Thomas should be coming on instead of Nasri. How many more goals does JET have to score in the reserves to get some time in the Carling Cup?

Three fans on the pitch. One wanted to shake Wenger's hand, the other two were just idiots. Anyways, good night for Arsenal. Any screw up now in this competition would be devastating.

Just hope we won't get Villa in the semis, although I'm confident we can beat anyone over two legs. Advantage Arsenal. Now let's see if the team can deal with this amount of pressure and hopefully use it as a springboard for bigger things. :D
