Arsenal
vs. Blackburn Rovers
FA Cup Fifth Round
Kickoff: Saturday, February 16, 10:00 AM EST
Emirates Stadium, North London, London, Greater London
Televisual Coverations: Fox Soccer Channel

So. The lineups are out, and here they be:

Arsenal: Szczesny, Coquelin, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Monreal, Diaby, Rosicky, Arteta, Gervinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud.

Vermaelen and Koscielny both came through their fitness tests, and Bacary Sagna is getting a reste. I hope this works out. Gervinho, as expected, is getting the start, along with the Ox.

Subs: Mannone, Sagna, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski.

Wilshere's on the subs bench, then. Hopefully we won't need to call on his services.

Blackburn: Kean, Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson, Pedersen, Williamson, Lowe, Markus Olsson, Kazim-Richards, Rhodes.

Subs: Usai, Givet, Fabio Nunes, Rekik, Nuno Gomes, Goodwillie, Bentley.
