Should Arsenal drop Walcott when Gervinho returns?

The Ivory Coast winger Gervinho was excellent in his first few months at Arsenal and he quickly became Wenger’s automatic first choice on the left wing, but since his departure for the African Nations Cup Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has grabbed his chance with both feet and has made himself irreplaceable.

It was the combination of Van Persie helped by The Ox and Walcott that set up the demolition of Blackburn, but arguably Gervinho has been more consistently effective than Walcott this season.

Arsene Wenger really enjoyed watching Gervinho’s individual goal that sent the Ivory Coast into the final of the ACN and thinks that he will be even better when he returns from the tournament, but if he is going to find him a place back in the Arsenal first team then Wenger has a dilemma on his hands.

If you were Wenger and had a fully fit trio of Walcott, Gervinho and The Ox, who would you leave on the bench?
