Blacburn's biggest threat could well come from wide forward David Hoilett. The fleet-footed youngster is a very underrated prospect and Bacary Sagna and Kieran Gibbs will need to work hard to subdue the talented 21-year-old.
Hoilett utilises tremendous pace and plenty of tricks to get behind a defense, and he possesses a dangerous final delivery. The Canadian prospect will be key to Blackburn's attempts to expose the Gunners in the air, but he also has the speed and instincts to catch out Arsenal's ponderous back line. Hoilett will switch wings and it will be up to Gibbs and Sagna to corral him and prevent him from challenging the middle of Arsenal's back four with numerous accurate crosses.
Blackburn possess an able deputy in speedy and skillful young Swede Martin Olsson who could also be pressed into action down either flank.
Tomorrow's game presents Arsene Wenger's side with the ideal opportunity to put their poor early season form behind them. A victory would provide a good platform as they enter a favourable run of fixtures.
But Blackburn cannot be easily overlooked. They are a defensively solid team who have given Arsenal plenty of problems in the past.
Given Arsenal's fragile nature so far this season, a strong performance is needed to help win back the trust of the fans.
