It's business as usual between Blackpool and Arsenal in their English Premier League match at Bloomfield Road, as both managers have selected their typical teams without surprises. A red card lead to a 6-0 Arsenal win in the first match of the season between these two at the Emirates Stadium, but it seems likely that Blackpool won't go down so easily in this encounter. With relegation staring them in the face, the Tangerines, who are just one point above the drop zone, should be focused.
Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1): Lehman; Clichy, Koscielny, Squillaci, Sagna; Diaby, Wilshere; Arshavin, Nasri, Fabregas; van Persie
Blackpool lineup (4-3-3): Kingson; Crainey, Evatt, Cathcart, Baptiste; Southern, Puncheon, Adam; Varney, Taylor-Fletcher, Campbell
Blackpool have a game in hand on their relegation rivals, so they will stay above the drop with a loss, but they can only take so many. The relegation race is extremely tight, and no team is certain to go down. Arsenal are 10 points behind Manchester United for first place, but have two games in hand and could be within a manageable distance if they win both.
