After back to back defeats, Arsenal will be hoping to get back to winning ways this week when they face rivals Tottenham away from home.
Arsene Wenger will have to start a make shift team for the Capital One Cup game because of three major absentees.
Gabriel Paulista and Santi Cazorla were sent off in the game against Chelsea and are suspended for the league cup game. Moreover, first choice holding midfield player Francis Coquelin suffered a knee injury versus the Blues and PhysioRoom have not suggested any return date for the French star.
Expect Aaron Ramsey to be shifted in the midfield to partner captain Mikel Arteta against Spurs. Chamberlain should return to the starting XI as well.
As far as replacing Gabriel is concerned, Mertesacker has missed the last few games for the Gunners and it will not come as a surprise if Chambers starts with Koscielny in the central defense.
Here is Arsenal strongest possible starting XI vs Tottenham.
Prediction: Tottenham 1-0 Arsenal
