With the FA Cup being the last real competition that Arsenal have been given a chance in by all the sports experts out there, it’s pretty imperative that we put our best squad out there and put down a team that we’ve had major issues with in the past couple of years.

And it’s at Old Trafford, so you know we’ll need the best.

Injuries aren’t much of a concern anymore. Mathieu Flamini is out, but he wasn’t really going to find playing times anyways. Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Debuchy are still out, but they’re position is being amply filled. Nacho Monreal might be available, but that’s not too big of a boost to the squad, as I still prefer Kieran Gibbs for obvious reasons.

Wednesday against QPR showed us a solid defense with an attack that was somewhat lacking. We’re going to need that attack to show up against United. Alexis is back on the score sheet and that’s a weight lifted, so hopefully he’ll add to that tally against the Red Devils.
