Arsenal will kick start their Capital One Cup campaign against arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
The Gunners have lost their last two games whereas Spurs have won their last three and it will be an intriguing battle between the two.
As far as Arsene Wenger’s team news is concerned, six players are out for Arsenal for the crucial North London derby.
Players like Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and striker Danny Welbeck have been out for quite some time due to injuries. The latest addition to the injury list is their first choice defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin (PhysioRoom).
The absence of Coquelin is a massive blow for the Gunners as they have no quality DM to cover for the French midfielder. Captain Mikel Arteta will probably take his place in the starting XI against Tottenham.
Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista and Spanish star Santi Cazorla will miss the game against Tottenham due to suspension.
