Team News: Arsenal vs Leeds

Arsene Wenger has named an extremely strong line-up for tonight`s FA Cup 3rd Clash vs Leeds United at Ashburton Grove.

Wenger had made comments about the FA Cup being a "bonus" that had been blown completely out of all proportions in some quarters, however Wenger`s team selection has shown that the Frenchman is taking the competition very seriously.

Often in the past Wenger has used the cup competitions (the league cup more than the Carling cup) to blood young players, yet despite the lower league competition tonight Arsene has gone with a mixture of youth and experience.

Notable inclusions are obviously Thierry Henry, Alec Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta.

The magic of the FA Cup keeps producing. Henry comes on 1st real chance he gets was it ? Superb, however it must come as a blow that it took Henry to score against Leeds ?? Not on a windup, just an observation is all.

He's going to bring a spring to your season, however probably as a super-sub. Still, hardly the worst Striker to bring on with 30 mins left, eh ?

Fairy tale stuff there. He had to just come on and score, didn't he? And his trademark goal too.

Nice to see the ref make a sensible decision WRT Coquelin's (undangerous) 2 footer tonight. Even an inept d!!ck like Clattenburg can tell the difference between a telling off and a sending off. Nice start for henry BTW - I believe the phrase is "fairytale return"?
