So it’s back to the League Cup…. which doesn’t have a sponsor this season so it’s called the EFL Cup. Tonight we play Forest…. they’ve only beaten the Gunners once in our last 13 meetings in all competitions , D4 L8 so hopes should be high, in fact, they haven’t won against a Premier League side since beating Man City in 1993.
But remember, we got knocked out of the competition last season by Championship side Sheffield Wednesday 3-0……….. so some caution necessary with team selection, which will probably be a mix of 1st team players and youngsters. Expect Ospina in goal, Gibbs and Chambers to get a game, Giroud needs a run out and Perez will probably get some game time too. The rest I’m not sure of, Rob Holding, Akpom and perhaps a couple of youngsters. Ozil, Sanchez, Cazorla, Coquelin, Kochielny, Mustafi and Walcott to be rested.
The League cup doesn’t warrant a long pre match….. so that’s your fucking lot mates.
Expect a few goals.
