When Sam Allardyce managed Bolton Wanderers, Arsenal used to hate to travel to the Reebok Stadium. While Owen Coyle has brought a lot more style to Bolton than Big Sam employed, the Reebok Stadium has been a much happier place for the Gunners lately. In the past three games against Arsenal at the Reebok Stadium, Arsenal has won each one. The last time Arsenal lost at Bolton’s home ground was in 2006 when they lost 3-1.

In team news, Abou Diaby is out injured after hurting his calf against Tottenham Hotspur. Tomas Rosicky, meanwhile, is doubtful after picking up an illness. Nevertheless, Arsenal will be near full strength and will be wanting to overcome the disappointment of their drawn matches against Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

For Bolton, it’s better news. Matt Taylor, Daniel Sturridge and Mark Davies are back for the Trotters. They’ll be wanting to put the devastating 5-0 loss against Stoke City out of their minds.

Before, during or after the game today, post your rants, raves, questions or observations in the comments section below.
