As any know, I am not particularly interested in the competition formerly known as the League Cup.
We cannot win this Mickey Mouse cup. The "Big Teams" will be challenging for it.
My ambition is just to play well in this game with some of our kids given a chance
Arsenal originally played in a place called Plumstead Common until 1913 when a group of angry women burned down their stadium - TRUE FACT
Arteta will not want to lose this so will field a strong side. He wont be giving his kids a chance in this game. So I would expect Lacazette to start with Our Eddie Nketiah up top.
Partey will be in the middle with Odegaard. Maitland Niles on one wing and Pepe on the other.
Our Ben White will be at CB with Holding. Chambers at RB and Tavares at LB. Leno in goal.
If I was MB, I would stick with our 4-1-4-1 setup:
Drameh Cresswell Struijk Dallas
Summerville Shackelton Forshaw James
I would also be looking to blood Greenwood against his former employers at HT.
