Theo Walcott has finally nudged his way back into Arsene's starting 11 for the 3pm kick off vs West Ham. Arsene has rotated his team a little bringing in Calum Chambers for Hector Bellerin, Aaron Ramsey slots in alongside Coquelin so Santi Cazorla rests to the bench. That change may have allowed Arsene to give wide men Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott a rare chance together on the flanks. Ramsey perhaps gives us that defensive insurance as our two wide forwards have a habit of

Nacho Monreal comes back into the team ahead of Kieran Gibbs which is a slight surprise given Gibbs performance against QPR. Szczesny being the cup keeper comes back into the team but the excitement comes a little further forward. Alexis Sanchez replaces Giroud as our centre forward with the Frenchman dropping down to the bench. Surely that is due to injury but that is a big surprise. Oxlade-Chamberlain has come back into the team which shows a lot of faith in him. Danny Welbeck starts from the left.

Tonight it is Laurent Koscielny's turn to rest down to the bench so Per Mertesacker comes back into the team to partner Gabriel for the first time. Tomas Rosicky's charging around the pitch cameo against Everton has earned him a start ahead of a more natural wide forward. Perhaps Özil will be the one to move to the left to give us some more strength in the middle. Whichever way those two start, I'm sure there will be plenty of in game rotation

The surprise story is that Theo Walcott has failed to start in the last three games in a row and will continue to bide his time on the bench. The other big news is that Gabriel has come into the team at the expense of Per Mertesacker, so Santi Cazorla will wear the captains armband.

Arsene has kept faith with the attacking team that brushed aside Middlesbrough last weekend. Danny Welbeck keeps his place in the side ahead of Theo Walcott which is very interesting. Francis Coquelin comes back into the team ahead of Mathieu Flamini so it will be interesting to see how the team look with the younger Frenchman in the side

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
