[Teams] Reading vs Arsenal: Confirmed Line-ups

By on December 17, 2012

Arsenal take on Reading tonight looking to bounce back from  last weeks humiliating Capital One Cup defeat to League Two Bradford.

We currently sit eight in the table but a win tonight would move us up to fifth and just two points off third-placed Chelsea, so we have to secure the three points against bottom-placed Reading.

Arsene Wenger has picked an interesting line-up for the game with Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked in the attacking three positions. Will it be Walcott or Podolski up front? They will probably rotate by my money is on Theo starting in the central position. Let’s see what he can do in his ‘favoured’ role.

Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

Reading Team

Federici; Cummings, Shorey, Gorkss, Mariappa; Leigertwood, Tabb, Kebe, McAnuff; Hunt, Pogrebnyak

Subs: Taylor, Gunter, Harte, Pearce, McCleary, Robson-Kanu, Le Fondre

Arsenal Team

Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski, Walcott.

Subs: Mannone, Koscielny, Coquelin, Ramsey, Rosicky, Gervinho, Giroud
