Wojciech Szczesny Dropped To The Bench For FA Cup Clash

Arsene Wenger has dropped young goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny for tonight’s FA Cup tie with Leyton Orient.

Szczesny and defender Laurent Koscielny will not feature after their Carling Cup howler on Sunday.

It is said that Koscielny sits out the Orient game with a ‘tight hamstring’ and Szczesny will be on the bench to allow Manuel Almunia a rare appearance.

The Gunners remain in three competitions but the nature of the Birmingham defeat and the six-year trophy drought mean they will hope to ease the pressure by sweeping aside Orient.
