On Wednesday, January 30, Arsenal hosts Liverpool in midweek fixtures of Premier League. Both sides occupy consecutive position in the league table with Arsenal leading by 3 points.
Both sides registered impressive wins in the previous Premier League fixture scoring 5 goals each. But if Last week's FA cup outings are looked at there seems a cause of worry for both managers.
Arsenal survived a scare to qualify for the next round. Liverpool on the other hand lost to Oldham leaving manager Brendan Rodgers with lots of unanswered questions.
Arsene Wenger would be delighted with the form of Oliver Giroud after netting 4 goals in 2 games. Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski will feature along with Giriud. In the midfield Santi
Cazorla nad Jack Wilshere would be the key man with Abou Diaby playing the holding role. Tomas Rosicky and Oxlade Chamberlain could have a role to play later in the match.
Thomas Vermaelen is expected to return after injury but Arsene Wenger is likely to start with Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny as his central defence partnership.
Kieran Gibbs and Bacary Sagna will be the wide men.
