The FA Cup third round wraps up today, and one of the matches is this here rematch of last year's final. As much as rest seems to be on everyone's mind, most reports seem to indicate that Arsenal are going to be fielding a reasonably first-choice side for this match. I love the FA Cup, but I also love getting overtired players a rest wherever possible, and this game seems like a great chance to do just that - but it seems that the club think differently, which is why they get paid the big money I guess.

So, my main hope now that it seems like most of the regulars are starting is that Arsenal can win without working too hard, and that nobody gets injured. The magic of the Cup!
