[TEAMS ANNOUNCED] Arsenal vs Wigan: Van Persie Starts in 4-4-2 formation


Arsenal take on Wigan at a very cold and snowy Emirates tonight for a place in the Carling Cup Semi-finals. Arsene Wenger continues with Szczsny between the sticks, while Emmanuel Eboue has miraculously recovered from a knee injury and is fit to start. Robin van Persie also starts his first game since returning from injury.

Interestingly it seems Wenger has reverted back to a 4-4-2 formation tonight, with Walcott, Bendtner, Vela and Van Persie all starting it seems unlikely they will line-up in the familiar 4-2-3-1 come 4-3-3 formation. Walcott and Vela seem certain to start on the wings with Van Persie and Bendtner playing up front together.
