FA Cup Quarterfinals
Kick off: March 9th, 2015 1945 GMT
For the massive clash against United, manager Arsene Wenger has named the strongest side available to him, at least on paper. Out of favour keeper Szczesny makes a return between the sticks, with Martinez on the bench. In defence, we have the impressive Bellerin, the experienced duo of Koscielny and Mertesacker and also a start for Nacho Monreal. Francis Coquelin also starts in the holding midfield role.
In the attacking half, we have a midfield comprising Cazorla, the Ox, Ozil and Sanchez. Over the past few games, they have been rather impressive and hopefully they will produce the goods today as well. Up front in the striker’s position, we have Welbeck starting over Giroud in an interesting pick. Evidently Wenger is looking for a high workrate from the team today to break down United.
On the bench, we have Ramsey, Walcott and Giroud for some late fireworks.
- Arsenal must outmanoeuvre Galatasaray to win race for £2m ‘bargain’ transfer
