Arsene Wenger looks likely to rest a number of first team players for Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Liverpool, ahead of the Gunners Champions League tie with Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Mail.
The Arsenal boss is faced with a selection headache, as he faces two massive clashes in the space of four days.
He is set to rotate the side that managed a 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Wednesday, when Brendan Rodgers brings his Liverpool side to the Emirates on Sunday, fresh from their 5-1 win over the Gunners last Saturday.
The likes of Lukasz Fabianksi, Mathieu Flamini, Carl Jenkinson, Lukas Podolski, Serge Gnabry and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all in line for first team recall.
Meanwhile, the likes of Woijciech Szczesny, Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, and Mikel Arteta could all be rested for the clash with Liverpool.
Wenger knows the FA Cup is a good opportunity for Arsenal to end their trophy drought, which dates back to 2005.
And after last season’s humiliating exit at the hands of Blackburn Rovers, Wenger is aware of the danger of tampering with his side too much.
