Wenger's starting 11: Rosicky, Walcott and Chamakh start

Theo Walcott earns a recall for Arsenal's vital Champions League qualifier against Udinese.

The England international is one of two changes to Arsene Wenger's team which drew with Newcastle last weekend.

Wenger prefers Walcott to Andrey Arshavin and in place of the suspended Robin van Persie comes Marouane Chamakh.

Despite earlier reports Tomas Rosicky would not be fit for the tie, the Czech international takes his place in the starting 11.

ARSENAL (4-2-3-1): Szczesny; Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs; Song, Rosicky; Walcott, Ramsey, Gervinho; Chamakh.

Subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Djourou, Frimpong Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arshavin, Bendtner.
