So, after all the worrying and predictions about Arsenal's "weakened" lineup, and the merciless trolling from haters, it turns out that Arsenal are fielding their standard strongest lineup possible. So.

Here are the lineups:

Arsenal: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Rosicky, Walcott, Cazorla, Giroud.

Subs: Mannone, Diaby, Vermaelen, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coquelin, Arshavin, Gervinho

Bayern: Neuer - Lahm, van Buyten, Dante, Alaba - Martinez, Gustavo - Müller, Kroos, Robben - Mandzukić

Subs: Starke, Rafinha, Contento, Shaqiri, Tymoshchuk, Pizarro, Gomez.

So. Arsenal obviously go without Jack Wilshere and Wojciech Szczesny. Fabianski may have rough times, since this is his first game in like a decade or so.

But hey! Tomas Rosicky! Wheeeeeeeeeeee! I actually quite like this lineup a lot. Arsenal need goals, it's the knockout round, and hey, let's just frigging go for it.
