Chamakh to start in front of van Persie with Henry on Arsenal bench for FA Cup clash

Marouane Chamakh is expected to start up front for Arsenal in tonight's FA Cup third round meeting with Leeds United.

The Moroccan has been allowed to stay behind in order to get more match fitness ahead of the African Cup of Nations and will be given a start by Arsene Wenger who has decided to rest captain Robin van Persie.

Loanee Thierry Henry will begin on the bench for his much-anticipated return to North London with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott to play either side of Chamakh.
