Arshavin inspires young Gunners to victory: Arsenal 2-1 Bolton

Arsenal fought back from a goal down to secure their passage into the Carling Cup quarter-finals against a determined Bolton Wanderers side.

Manager Arsene Wenger fielded a weakened line-up for the cup clash in a first half where Arsenal struggled to break down their opponent’s packed midfield.

Former Gunners starlet Fabrice Muamba combined with Darren Pratley for Wanderers opener, driving his effort past Lukasz Fabianski in the Arsenal goal.

Shortly after, Andrey Arshavin equalised following a good spell of pressure from the Arsenal midfield.

Park Chu-Young then scored a sumptious first Arsenal goal, placing his shot past goalkeeper Bogdan after receiving Arshavin’s through ball.

Arsenal’s Starting XI: Fabianski, Yennaris, Squillaci, Vermaelen (c) (Boateng 84), Miquel, Frimpong (Ozyakup 76), Coquelin, Benayoun, Oxlade-Chamberlain (Ryo 73), Arshavin, Park.

Subs not used: Mannone (GK), Meade, Aneke, Watt.

    Stunning finish by Park, reminiscent of Le Bob in his pomp. Hope we see some more of him soon, don’t care who that was against, it was great technique.

    I think park should play on the right or left wing against Chelsea. He is an intelligent player and clinical finisher

    Can wenger please change his tactics a bit for chelsea? perhaps play Gervinho, RVP & Park as a wing instead of walcott.
    Do you see how that ball curved? He can do that vs. chelsea. Just work with him on the offside rule a bit :)
