Here’s the side we reckon Arsene Wenger will start for the Gunners against Wigan in the FA Cup today…
GK) Lukas Fabianski
Fabianski will no doubt retain his spot in goal for the FA Cup semi-final, as he has done for the entire competition. Arsene Wenger will have a difficult job choosing who plays the final between Fabianski and regular first-choice Wojciech Szczesny should the Gunners win today.
DR) Bacary Sagna
One of the first names on the team sheet, Sagna is defensively solid, while offering the Gunners an attacking outlet up the right flank, too.
DC) Per Mertesacker
The giant German is practically unbeatable in the air, but will hope his lack of pace isn’t targeted by the Championship outfit.
DC) Thomas Vermaelen
Interestingly, the Belgian centre-back has actually scored four goals in his last four starts against Wigan! He’ll continue to deputise for the injured Laurent Koscielny.
DL) Nacho Monreal
Kieran Gibbs is still nursing an injury, meaning Spanish left-back Monreal will likely get the nod to start at Wembley today.
