Blackburn v Arsenal where it all began

October, 1996. Blackburn Rovers 0-2 Arsenal Arsene Wenger's first Game as Arsenal Manager.

Arsenal: Seaman, Dixon, Keown, Bould, Adams, Winterburn, Platt,
Vieira, Merson, Wright, Hartson
Subs: Parlour (Hartson 85), Shaw, Linighan, Rose, Lukic

Blackburn: Flowers, Kenna, Sherwood, Bohinen, Wilcox, Marker, Sutton,
Berg, Donis, Beattie, Croft
Subs: Ripley (Donis 64), Gudmundsson (Wilcox 75), Given,
Flitcroft, Broomes

Result : Blackburn (0) 0 Arsenal (1) 2 Scorers: Wright 3,51

Of the matchday squad Wenger inherited and kept hold of Seaman, Dixon, Keown, Bould, Adams, Winterburn, along with Parlour and Wright (and a decent second goalkeeper in Lukic) not a bad backbone to start with!

May, 2010. Blackburn Rovers ?-? Arsenal

This is the next game. How many of Monday's matchday squad would a new manager retain?
