Coquelin Gets His Chance..Walcott and Bendtner Rested!

With a host of injuries,Arsenal will rest a number of players who would normally play in the Carling cup. Both Walcott and Bendtner have been omitted from tonight’s squad. With Adebayor now out for a number of weeks Bendtner is now very much needed to lead the line for the next few games. Its a big chance for the young striker to make a name for himself in the first team, I through the young Dane played well vs ManU and worked hard up on his own, But at times he was a little selfish.

So tonight we get a chance to see a few more of the young guns at Arsenal.I’m very much looking forward to watching young Coquelin again who has impressed me with his hustling play. He reminds me of a Flamini type player with his aggressive defensive midfielder style.

Also a big chance for Jay Simpson tonight who impressed me with his pace and movement in preseason.I would think Jay will be used coming off the bench in the final 20mins.

12 Carlos VELA

    The team you picked is so small. Cant imagine how they would fare against long ball wigan. Zaki is a beast against most defenders. I’ld pick Toure over Song at CB anyday.
