Arsene Wenger says he will make a late call on who will start up front against Chelsea.
The manager has rotated Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud this season, with the France striker starting Arsenal’s Champions League opener against Dinamo Zagreb.
Walcott has four goals in his last three appearances for club and country, including a late strike at Maksimir Stadium, and Wenger has a difficult choice to make ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.
“At the moment I must say that is a decision I still have to make tomorrow morning,” the manager said. “I try to use the best solution that gives us the most efficiency offensively.
“Every game is different and that is why I don’t deny at all the quality of Walcott. I am very happy that he scored so many goals in so many starts. He shows as well that when he comes on, he can score as well, which he did in Zagreb.”
