Emirates Stadium, London
Form: ARS LWLWW | REA LLLLL

SBN Reading Reading Place: The Tilehurst End

I really don't believe it. We made it through OK. This is time for rejoicing and celebrating and dancing with our pants off, thankful that the Interlull did not destroy our hearts, spirits and minds. Below are the lineups; three points or bust today and if we can get by with a little help from our friends, then we can make this lead-in to the end of the season even more exciting. The lineups:

Arsenal: Fabianski; Sagna (!), Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Arteta, Ramsey; Gervinho, Rosicky, Cazorla; Giroud

Subs: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Coquelin, Oxlade-Chambelain, Podolski

Reading: Taylor, Kelly, Shorey, Mariappa, Pearce, Karacan, Leigertwood, Guthrie, Robson-Kanu, McAnuff, Pogrebnyak

Subs: McCarthy, Gunter, Morrison, Akpan, McCleary, Le Fondre, Hunt

So Nigel Adkins puts his team in a 4-5-1 shape with two wingers in Jobi McAnuff and Hal Robson-Kanu.

Levar Burton's pretty cool in my book (pun definitely intended), but here's hoping the Arsenal stick a half-dozen goals past his stupid rainbow. COYG.
