If you missed our preview of the match, be sure to go check it out! 

Two teams with poor runs of form boosted by midweek results in the Carling Cup, Bolton Wanderers take on the Arsenal at the Emirates in a fixture that Bolton tend to not have good away days in. The first of the two club's (at least) three meetings this season should set the tone as each club hopes to climb out of their respective Premier League crises. It looks like Owen Coyle has rung in the changes for Bolton as Gary Cahill (who is apparently ill) and Stuart Holden have not made the bench while David Ngog gets the start ahead of Kevin Davies.
