Arsenal suffered a shocking defeat in the FA Cup third round against Nottingham Forest and will look to bounce back when they face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup tomorrow night.
The North Londoners collided against the Blues in their last Premier League game and the entertaining contest ended 2-2.
As far as Wenger’s team news is concerned, we can expect the French boss to make no fewer than nine changes in the team that started the FA Cup fixture on Sunday.
Petr Cech should replace David Ospina in the goal for the Gunners. The likes of Mertesacker, Mustafi and Chambers should play in the back line in front of the Czech goalie.
Hector Bellerin and Maitland-Niles should start in the wing-back positions. As far as the midfield is concerned, Wilshere and Xhaka should return for Arsenal.
In the attacking third, Giroud is still out injured, so we can expect the out of form Lacazette to start again. Behind the French forward, Ozil and Alexis should start in the attack.
Here is Arsenal’s strongest possible 3-4-2-1 XI vs Chelsea.
