I have it on good authority (Ted from the Short Fuse, the best authority) that Arsenal will probably be lining up in a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1. Both of these seem very frightening as Bolton have barely managed to get past the 4-4-2. Benayoun is likely to be driving the machine in the center, while Park Chu Young, who was supposedly originally a Bolton target this summer, is the danger up front. 

Meanwhile, Coyle pleasingly took my advice and went with the 4-5-1, although his features different players than I suggested. Tuncay is replacing Eagles on the right, and Kakuta getting a rare look in on the left. Ivan Klasnic will be hoping to get back his early season mojo as he starts as our loan striker. Gretar gets the start after being left out of the squad, thanks to the ineligibility of Boyata.
