After the wonderful victory against Ch*vski last weekend, it’s important to maintain the momentum against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
Just as after the victory over M*nure, the Gooners have another home game to build on that confidence-boosting result, so too do the challenges that come from facing a side like Wigan.
Physical, clinical and capable of defending very deep, the Latics have had some impressive results this season, including a draw against Liverpool thanks to a brace from Amir Zazi when they should have won.
Chris Kirkland is proving once again that he is the best English goalkeeper, and what a career he might have had if his back injuries had not been so pronounced.
He was a one man wall last weekend against WBA and getting past him and a resolute Latics defence is going to be some obstacle.
At the other end, Zaki and Emile Heskey have brilliance and brawn and the defence will have to be on their toes to cope with it.
I can see Wenger playing a fairly predictable team, not totally different to that which started against Ch*vski, apart from the absence of William Gallas.
The return of Manu Eboue gives us some options on the wing and with Denilson labouring, perhaps giving the young Brazilian a break would be beneficial. I can’t see it happening but still...
The Addict XI would be:
Sagna Djourou Toure Clichy
Eboue Fabregas Song Nasri
