Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is leading his men to Stamford Bridge to clash with Chelsea in their next League Cup game today.
The North Londoners are going into the game with full confidence after thrashing Crystal Palace 4-1 in their last Premier League game.
Pep Guardiola’s Man City are now through to the final of the competition after winning Bristol City on Tuesday night.
And as far as Arsenal’s team news is concerned, it was made known that both Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud won’t participate in the game due to injuries, but the likes of Ramsey and Monreal are expected to take the short trip to West London for the London Derby.
Alexis Sanchez completed his move to Manchester United on Monday and has been replaced by Herinkh Mkhitaryan. However, the Armenia international won’t be able to participate in the League Cup with Arsenal, and we expect the duo of Alex Iwobi and Mesut Ozil to partner and support Alexandre Lacazette in front of attack.
With Wilshere and Xhaka taking care of the centre of the park, this is Arsenal’s strongest
possible 3-4-2-1 XI against the blues.
GK – Ospina
DC – Kolasinac
DC – Koscielny
DC – Mustafi
ML – Maitland-Niles
MC – Xhaka
MC – Wilshere
MR – Bellerin
AC – Iwobi
AC – Ozil
FC – Lacazette
