🦊🔴 Leicester vs Arsenal: Our predicted Gunners XI for Wednesday's EFL Cup tie

Mikel Arteta is likely to shuffle his pack somewhat for Arsenal's EFL Cup 3rd round tie at King Power Stadium on Wednesday.

There could be a start for William Saliba in defence. The teenager has yet to feature in the Gunners' opening two Premier League encounters but the EFL Cup might be the perfect opportunity for the talented Frenchman to make his debut for the club.

Saliba could have the experience of 33-year-old David Luiz to lean on, with the Brazilian in full training and vying for a place in the XI.

Eddie Nketiah, fresh from his match-winning cameo against West Ham from the bench, could start in place of Alex Lacazette. Ainsley Maitland-Niles didn't feature against West Ham so he should be in line for a recall in place of Héctor Bellerín. Cliub record signing Nicolas Pépé is also due for a start.

🔮 Likely Arsenal XI vs Leicester

Leno; Saliba, Luiz, Kolasinac; Maitland-Niles, Ceballos, Elneny, Saka; Pépé, Nketiah, Aubameyang
