Arsenal travel to the KC stadium this weekend in the Premier league in a game that promises to be the ideal dress rehearsal for the FA Cup final later in the season. While the Gunners edged out Wigan on Penalties and followed it up with a 3-1 win over West Ham in midweek, Steve Bruce’s men beat Nigel Clough’s spirited Sheffield United side by 5-3 to book a place in the final against Wenger’s men.
Arsenal are currently in fourth a point above Everton after the latter was beaten at home by Crystal Palace by a 3-2 margin. The Gunners can ill afford to drop points should Everton capitalize in the fight to the finish for fourth place. So what will be Wenger’s strongest possible lineup against the Tigers? We here at Soccersouls have the answer.
Wojciech Szczesny’s goalkeeping has left a lot to be desired the past few weeks. The Pole had been in great form in the first half of the season but his form has inexplicably gone down the barrel leaving a lot of questions to be answered. West Ham opened the scoring at the Emirates in midweek which was nothing more than a soft goal to concede. Szczesny however will be in for a test this weekend as Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long will lead the line for the home side.
