Thomas Vermaelen returns to the heart of the Arsenal defence for tonight's Carling Cup Fourth-Round tie against Bolton at Emirates Stadium.

The centre back has been sidelined for two months with an ankle problem and makes his long-awaited comeback alongside Sebastien Squillaci.

In defence there is a debut for Nico Yennaris at right back, with Ignasi Miquel getting a chance to impress on the opposite flank.

Ju Young Park makes his second start for the Club following his debut against Shrewsbury in the Third Round. Andrey Arshavin and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also in Wenger's line-up.

Team in full: Fabianski, Yennaris, Squillaci, Vermaelen, Miquel, Frimpong, Coquelin, Benayoun, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arshavin, Park.

Substitutes: Mannone, Meade, Boateng, Ozyakup, Aneke, Ryo, Watt
