Play Fantasy Arsene Wenger: Pick your first team to face Reading

With Mathieu Flamini joining Tomas Rosicky and Eduardo on the sidelines and Abou Diaby still suspended, we could see Arsene Wenger experimenting in midfield on Saturday and I for one wouldn't mind seeing either Denilson or even Kolo Toure filling in for the missing Flamster.

Hopefully Bacary Sagna will return to duty having shaken off his ankle knock and indulging in my end of season mentality, I'd like to see Alex Song getting some time on the pitch alongside William Gallas. With Euro 2008 around the corner, I'd also like to see Wenger allowing Jens Lehmann to get some match practice, so that he's sharp enough to retain the No. 1 jersey for his country.

The other night I watched the footage of Arsenal's 7-0 win over Slavia Prague and it was interesting to see the way that Theo Walcott linked so naturally with Nicklas Bendtner and I'm hoping we get the chance to see that again before the end of the season, although I can't see it happening this weekend.

However, this is all about who you'd choose to play against Reading, so feel free to be as experimental as you want when you share your thoughts about your starting 11.

Here's who my team would be:

Sagna Song Gallas Clichy
Walcott Fabregas Toure Hleb
Bendtner Van Persie

Subs. Almunia, Eboue, Gilberto, Denilson, Adebayor

Walcott will start. Maybe not now, but Theo is rapidly earning a starting place at Arsenal. I'd run out the kids and give them a shot and the big guy in keep. Arguably, we've run out of gas this season as Cesc got tired.

Plus, give Lehmann a chance to receive deserved adoration from the Highbury Library.

Traore Toure Gallas Clichy
Walcott Flamini Denilson Hleb
RVP Adebayor
