Arsenal predicted line-up for FA Cup semi-final v Reading: All Guns blazing as Wenger picks strongest XI

Posted by

Per Mertesacker

CB: Per Mertesacker

Was very comfortable mopping up against Burnley last week and put himself about to dominate the aerial duels. Against a physically robust Reading side who like to pump balls into the box, Mertesacker will have to be at his best.

CB: Laurent Koscielny

It will likely be up to Kosicelny to try and handle Pavel Pogrebnyak and the Frenchman will want to be doing a lot better than when he faced the Russian at the Madjeski Stadium in 2012, with the Gunners conceding a quite incredible four-goals before half time until eventually turning it around with the help of extra time to win 7-5.
