Arsenal vs Man Utd: Wait for Walcott

Ryan Giggs should get his 800th cap. A special moment for a special player. We can dispute his PFA award but Sir Alex will be looking to him to provide some special moments.
The Ronaldo Rooney combination is looking mighty dangerous and leaves Wenger with a bit of a problem of trading off Gibbs speed for Silvestre’s match experience to contain that left to right link up. With Silvestre the chances of dead ball opportunities for Man U skyrocket. Ronaldo will relish those chances.
I think Wenger should start Gibbs for his work rate as well as for his Clichy like propensity for counterattacks. Song’s toughness at the back will help in clogging the middle.
Adebayor starts as the lone striker on top but the question is who plays behind him. Fabregas seems to have found his scoring touch, however his best work begins downfield, and if it is a choice then Nasri should fill that space.
Many of Walcott’s crosses have gone begging without the Gunners getting a boot or head on them. The troops need to come up and Walcott needs to wait a wee bit for the best chance at conversion.
Yes, all that and no need to micromanage the ball into goal. Snap shots. The kind we saw at Liverpool and Boro.
