Could Iwobi feature if Wenger rotates squad for Leicester clash? 0

Posted on April 25, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has hardly played for the Gunners in recent weeks, amassing a paltry 25 minutes of Premier League football in the last eight weeks, but could feature against Leicester City on Wednesday should manager Arsene Wenger rotate his squad after Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final victory.

The Londoners will have tired players after going to extra time at Wembley on the weekend, and their attacking players could be given a rest to stave off any signs of fatigue as a result. Iwobi was impressing in the first-half of the season but has been used sparingly in 2017. Despite his period of inactivity, he’s remained on the bench but could be deployed to keep the side fresh.

In the meantime, Arsenal boss is trying to latch on a newly-found dose of optimism following back-to-back triumphs over Middlesbrough in the Premier League and against Manchester City in the Fa Cup semi-final.

Walcott 12/5 to score anytime in this afternoon’s FA Cup clash with Man City 0

Posted on April 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott will be hoping he starts in today’s FA Cup semi-final match against Manchester City given his impressive record in past meetings, let alone this competition this season. The English international has been a thorn in the City side previously due to his excessive pace on the counter to catch the Sky Blues’ defence cold, and he could well strike again given how ruthless he’s been in the FA Cup so far.
