So here is the side with RVP as captain:
Szczesny, Eboue, Koscielny, Djourou, Gibbs, Denilson, Wilshere, Walcott, Bendtner, Van Persie (c), Vela
I wouldn't be surprised if Vela is to play on the left flank, Walcott on the right, with RVP slotting in just behind Bendtner, making this formation resemble more of a 4-4-2 than a 4-5-1. There will certainly be an emphasis on Vela and Walcott tracking back, and if they don't we may well get a tad overrun in the midfield.
I am extremely pleased to see Szszesny playing, a big opportunity for the confident young Pole. Gibbs and Djourou also have a chance to push for first team slots. Of those on the bench, I hope JET gets at least twenty minutes or so, he is a really exciting talent.
