How many changes should Wenger make for Arsenal's trip to Leeds?

By Graham McNorthbank

Arsenal travel north to Yorkshire today for what striker Robin van Persie is calling our "vital" replay against Leeds.

While it's great to see the players talking up the importance of the game, quite whether key individuals will figure in tonight's game is a different question, with Arsene Wenger hinting that there will be an element of rotation for the FA Cup clash.

There's no doubt that RvP is hitting top form again, but the Dutchman's notorious injury problems probably mean he will not be risked from the start tonight, while other players with question marks over their inclusion in the line up include Cesc Fabregas, Johan Djourou, Theo Walcott, Samir Nasri and just about anyone else you care to mention.

In his pre-match interview, Le Boss said that the only certainty fthis evening will be Wojciech Szczesny in goal, with Lukasz Fabianski still sidelined, while he also admitted that there would be "a few changes" from the team that put West Ham to the sword at the weekend.

Among the rumours circulating the interweb are gossip that Ignasi Miquel could make his debut in central defence as Wenger rests Djourou, while Aaron Ramsey could also make his first start since recovering from his injury problems.

Elsewhere Bacary Sagna is available again after suspension, while when it comes to injuries the usual suspects remain in the treatment room. One bright spot is that Samir Nasri, who has been nursing an ankle injury, appeared to hint via Twitter yesterday that he would be making the journey to Leeds.

So, without further ado, let's hear your thoughts on who should start for the Gunners this evening to secure our passage to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

One thing in our favour is that Le Gaffer has never lost a third round tie, so he might just select a stronger team than some suspect to keep that record intact.
