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.
Apart from a brilliant corner delivery that led to the goal, Walcott was pretty bad, hope he comes good in the second half. But the thing with Arsenal is that they don't like to play at the Emirates anymore.
