Wenger to decide on Walcott, Arshavin or Gervinho -Coquelin for substitute role?

Arsene Wenger has plenty of choices to make when it comes to the attacking options available to him for this afternoon's game with Bolton.

Wenger can also has options in midfield with a fine performance from Francis Coquelin in midweek offering him the chance to make changes in the centre of the park.

The Frenchman could chose from Alex Song, Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Emmanuel Frimpong or Coquelin to play in the deep lying midfield roles.

In attack Wenger also has options. He can chose from Theo Walcott, Gervinho, Andrey Arshavin in the wide areas.

Up front he'll start with captain Robin van Persie but could use Marouane Chamakh or Ju Young Park.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is included in the squad after his good showing on Tuesday night.

In defence Wenger will probably play Bacary Sagna at right back with his central pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.

Left back option is more tricky. A straight choice between Kieran Gibbs or Andre Santos.

And I would bet we'll see Wojciech Szczesny continue in goal.

For me the team will be:


Sagna - Mertesacker - Koscielny - Gibbs

Song - Arteta

Walcott - Ramsey - Gervinho

van Persie

Subs: Fabianski, Santos, Miquel, Coquelin, Oxlade Chamberlain, Arshavin, Chamakh.
