ARSENAL TEAM: Walcott, Silvestre, Rosicky Start

By Fab4.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has included Theo Walcott in the starting line-up for the game against Barcelona tonight. Mikel Silvestre comes in for Sol Campbell who is carrying a hamstring injury. Thomas Rosicky has shacken off a knock to start.

Barcelona have started Bojan ahead of ex-Arsenal striker Thierry Henry in place of the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic. While Abidal comes in for Maxwell at left back. Iniesta makes the bench.

Arsenal team:


Sagna                   Silvestre                         Vermaelen                    Clichy


Diaby                                Nasri

Walcott                                                            Rosicky


Subs: Fabianski, Eduardo, Campbell, Traore, Eastmond, Merida, Eboue

Barcelona team:


Alves                  Milito                  Marquez                   Abidal


Keita                          Xavi

Messi                                                    Pedro


So who feels confident now Silvestre is playing?!!! I’m not suggesting i know better than Arsene Wenger, but surely playing Sagna at centre back and Eboue at right back was the better option? Also, Arsene knew Sol couldn’t play 2 games in 4 days so why not start Silvestre at home to Wolves on Saturday and keep Campbell for tonight? Anyway….good luck boys, think you might need it!
