Should Wenger unleash The Ox against Man United and drop Arshavin?

The new young Arsenal striker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been impressive every time he has been given a run-out by Arsene Wenger, and many fans think that he should now be given a starting place ahead of the inconsistent Andrei Arshavin.

Now that Arsenal are big outsiders in the England Premiership betting lines, then surely it is time for Wenger to start blooding his young talents so they are ready to play a full part next season.

The Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny feels that The Ox is ready for the first team, but thinks that if Wenger has decided to be patient then the managers decision should be respected.
