Team News: Reading vs Arsenal

Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal will attempt to building on the shaky 1-0 win over QPR at the weekend as we travel to Reading in an attempt to secure a place in the League Cup quarter finals.

Mr Wenger seems intent on winning this tie a canter as he breaks out his secret weapon, Marouane Chamakh, in a surprise move that will excite Gooners the world over*

Theo Walcott makes a return to the starting line up as does Emmanuel Frimpong who continues along his road to recovery.

Let`s see how the team lines up.

Arsenal team to play Reading: Martinez, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Djourou, Miquel, Coquelin, Frimpong, Walcott, Arshavin, Gnabry, Chamakh.

Substitutes: Shea, Meade, Squillaci, Bellerin, Yennaris, Eisfeld, Giroud.

i don't know if there should be a cause for optimism due to the spirit shown tonight or huge concern for the man united match this weekend...

@ Stateside Gooner - Cause for optimism plus concern, Man United have a ***** midfield and they concede goals for fun, we have a quality midfield and concede goals for fun. Anyway I think I laughed throughout the entire game, the only thing which could've improved it is if all the Arsenal players were wearing It's A Knockout giant Wenger heads.

Wenger doesn't look happy at all in his post match interview.

@DBerg - Come on! After all the comedy Arsenal have given us in the past few years it's impossible to get angry anymore. We know Wenger's post Highbury teams are capable of anything at both ends of the spectrum. Beat Barcelona>>>blow a four goal lead>>>come back from 4-0 down>>>always lose to newly promoted sides>>>look like title contenders>>>look mid table. You just have to laugh.

i hope the arsenal fans will not be too quick to witch hunt some of our players like chamakh, arshavin & walcott. some of the guys playing today have not really had the chance to prove themselves in the first team. give them a string of games (in their suited position) and im sure they will come good. we cant play with the same 11 week in week out, they undoubtedly will get stale and predictable.

Walcott's hat trick reaffirmed his status as a serious goal threat - one of our few currently. Marouane Chamakh - take a bow! Two superb finishes - the last goal was as good a goal we have scored this season. Fantastic and shambolic game and I hope we tighten up our game away from home at OT.

Don't understand fans fearing OT on Saturday because of yesterday's showing, only Walcott and Giroud may play and none of the back five (bar any injuries).
