Team News: Arsenal vs Blackburn

Arsenal.

Which one will show up today?

Will it be the fluid, creative side more than capable of absolutely destroying Blackburn Rovers? Or will it be the wasteful Gunners, uninventive and cumbersome?

We never really know which one we`re going to get these days, however which ever Arsenal we get they should be more than enough to dispatch the side from Oop North.

However we all saw what happens to a team who shows up expecting to win when we were rather embarrassingly dumped out of the League Cup by the lowly Bradford City.

So hopefully we`ll get the job done with little hassle or drama and move on in to the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

Let`s see how the boys line up.

Arsenal team: Szczesny, Coquelin, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Monreal, Diaby, Rosicky, Arteta, Gervinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Arsenal subs: Mannone, Sagna, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski.

This selection (indeed, any Arsenal selection) should win this game. A few of the players are playing together for the first time, in a while and some never played together before; that is showing early on but they would grow into the game and get the needed stranglehold to go on to the next round. Good luck, lads.

Racking up the corner count now, but really should be posing more danger from them than we are.

Not much to cheer but the team got stronger as the game wore on. The Ox needs to be more incisive in his decision making. Coquelin has held his own well at RB well and making a case, as usual. We should be 3 ahead now, just on the corner count and that miss by Gervinho.

At 0-0 going into half time, obviously, Rovers are the happier team.

Gervinho is a good footballer, but how can he be so bad at finishing? I know he can aim ffs. It's a shame, he was playing well and with that miss all the Arsenal fans are jumping all over him again. He needs to score, and Chamberlain needs an assist.

Concern is how long before the manager is forced to call on the Calvary on the bench? This is the thing. The squad needs to be trying to stake a claim but when they are needed, they come short of expectation. We need to rest our key men today and this team should be winning this game.

Bringing on all 3 of those subs obviously worked better for the away side. For me, Diaby should be off along with Ox and that's all we needed. Maybe, Giroud off later for Theo.

when walcott, cazorla and wilshere all play on tuesday and we still get smashed by bayern, arsene might wonder if this tie wasn't the real important game out of the two...
