Even though it currently looks like the best chance of Arsenal picking up a trophy this season, I really do not think that Arsene Wenger should take many risks in order to get the Gunners through to the next round. Even though our third round opponents Preston North End will have the advantage of a vocal home crowd and are in decent form I feel that Arsenal have to take the chance of getting past them with a much changed starting XI.
Because of the bad luck we got with the drawing of Bayern Munich in the Champions League and with the draw at Bournemouth meaning we only made up a point on Chelsea in the Premier League after they lost, I understand that a lot of Gooners will be looking at the FA cup for some silverware to celebrate this season.
It is the Premier League title that Arsenal really want though, and if we are to give ourselves the best possible chance of challenging then the boss must make sure that no more big players join the already long injury list. He is going to leave Alexis Sanchez at home and I would like him to do the same with other key Gunners like Bellerin, Ozil and Xhaka.
Arsenal are eight points behind Chelsea but they have some tough games coming up and could well be set for a wobble and Arsenal go to Stamford Bridge in a few weeks. Of course we would all love to stay in the FA cup and go on to win it again but do you agree that Wenger must not risk our Premier League title bid to do it?
