Arsenal are at The Hawthorns today for the final game of the season – the game that will decide our final league position, decide whether we get to celebrate St Totteringham’s day and potentially decide the transfers we make this summer (including the issue of van Persie’s contract).
Arsenal.com has announced the line up for the match:
As I had hoped for, Wenger has picked a proper RB for this game instead of opting for Coquelin. Jenkinson hasn’t played much recently due to injury and Sagna’s form, but he was impressive early in the season, and hopefully he can continue that. Coquelin replaced Ramsey in midfield, which should be a positive move. Ramsey hasn’t been on top form and is often the scapegoat for our poor results. Coquelin is creative but also tracks back. Benayoun starts with Gervinho on the wings, in what could be the Israeli’s last match for the club, but I’m sure he will still work his socks off. Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the bench but I expect to see him as a supersub (although I hope we won’t need it!). Walcott is also on the bench having been out injured, but perhaps he isn’t ready for a start.
Substitutes: Fabianski, Djourou, Gibbs, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Ramsey, Chamakh
