CALLUM McManaman returns to Uwe Rosler’s side as Wigan Athletic appear at Wembley for the fourth time in 12 months.

In what is expected to be a 4-3-3 formation, the star of last year’s semi-final, who scored in the 2-0 win over Millwall at this stage last year takes his place.

Keeper Scott Carson, in line with previous Cup rounds this season, gets the nod over Ali Al Habsi, who sits on a bench including Roger Espinoza and Shaun Maloney.

Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey will make his first start of 2014, after making his return from a three-month layoff with a thigh injury in last week’s loss to Everton from the bench.
