Blackburn Rovers Vs. Arsenal Live, 2011 EPL: Lineups

Even though they've put together a couple of respectable results since suffering a 8-2 thrashing against Manchester United, Arsenal have a lot of convincing left to do. In their last English Premier League match, they defeated Swansea 1-0, needing a goalkeeping error to find a goal. Mid-week, in the UEFA Champions League, they were thoroughly outplayed by Borussia Dortmund as the teams played to a 1-1 draw. This is a team that needs a big result, and a dominant win over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park would go a long way towards restoring the fans' faith that Arsenal are a clear-cut favorite for a top four spot. Here are the lineups.

Blackburn Rovers lineup (4-2-3-1): Robinson; Salgado, Samba, Dann, Givet; Lowe, Nzonzi; Hoilett, Rochina, Formica; Yakubu

Arsenal lineup (4-3-3): Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Santos; Song, Arteta, Ramsey; Arshavin, Gervinho, Van Persie

This match can be seen on both ESPN2 and WatchESPN.com in the USA, Sky Sports 2 in the UK, and TSN 2 in Canada.
