Arsenal vs Wigan: Match Preview and line-ups

If there is going to be a finish article to Arsene Wenger’s youth project, then this is absolutely a match that the Gunners have to win. Not only this match, the lads have to gone and win this trophy to silence the many critics out there.

On paper this match should be a stroll in the park. However as we learnt from the past weeks, our form at the Emirates is hardly anything to shout about. In fact, it might even be detrimental since we have lost the last two games at home. Also, how can we forget the capitulation last year at the DW Stadium. We can say last April’s performance was due to the lack of senior players in the squad. This time around, Arsene has promised a strong squad in this Carling Cup quarterfinal matchup.

Traditional up and coming stars like JET and Lansbury would get a chance but this time around I expect to see more familiar faces. Certainly the Professor would rest some who have played at the weekend but players like Van Persie, Arshavin, Nasri and Walcott should all start the match.

The probably line-up: Almunia, Sagna, Djourou, Koscielny, Gibbs, Denilson, Wilshere, Nasri, Walcott, Eboue, Arshavin, Van Persie.
