LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Young forward Yaya Sanogo starts up to lead the attack for Arsenal, as manager Arsene Wenger made six changes to the line up for today’s FA Cup quarterfinal at Emirates Stadium.
Mesut Ozil starts as well, so does Thomas Vermaelen, who comes into defence in place of Laurent Koscielny, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mathieu Flamini are also in the starting team.
Lukasz Fabianski has gotten the nod in goal with Emiliano Viviano being his backup.
Meanwhile, Everton boss Roberto Martinez has decided to start with youngster Joel Robles ahead of the experienced Tim Howard in goal, while leading center-back and club captain Phil Jagielka is missing because of a hamstring injury before the international game in midweek.
