Arsene Wenger on Theo Walcott's future and the Reading game


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he will start with the best possible line-up on Saturday against Reading.

The Gunners are on course to retain the FA Cup after edging Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford in March.

The winner will face either Liverpool or Aston Villa in May's Final.

"It's not a game that I look at as an opportunity for some individual players, it's just an opportunity to go to the final," Wenger said.

"I will pick the team that, in my opinion, has the best chance to win the game.

"That can include some of these players or not, but honestly, I haven't decided who will start the game on Saturday."

Meanwhile, the Frenchman says his desire is to keep striker Theo Walcott and midfielders Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky at Arsenal ahead of next season.

"I believe that Theo has a great future," Wenger said.

"He is just coming back from a very, very difficult injury.

"Every week he is getting better, he is very young and I believe he will have a great goalscoring record in the future because of the quality and intelligence of his game, and therefore I would like him to stay with our club.

"I think they [Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky] will [also] be here next season. We'll sort that out at the end of May.

"I cannot give you any [new] names because at the moment we are focused on achieving our targets until the end of the season.

"Every game is vital now and we just want to focus on our games. We have a massive squad, we have a big, big squad, we have 24 players at the moment and we have players like [Lukas] Podolski, [Yaya] Sanogo and Joel Campbell out on loan.

"So for us it will first be important to prepare well and get the right dimension of the squad and if needed to add what we can add."
