Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Theo Walcott could get his chance as striker today against Blackburn Rovers.

Wenger intends to rest Robin van Persie for the vital game.

"We have [Ju Young] Park, Thierry Henry, we have Walcott who wants to play through the middle - he has not done it," Wenger told arsenal.com.

"We have not done it but we always have adapted. Thierry Henry at the start was not a centre forward, Robin van Persie was not a centre forward, so we'll see what we do if it happens."
