Mikel Arteta is expected to name a strong side to face Wimbledon in the EFL Cup even though a number of changes to his starting XI are inevitable.
🔮 Likely Arsenal XI vs Wimbledon:
Leno; Cédric, Holding, Marí, Tavares; Sambi Lokonga, Maitland-Niles; Pépé, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette
Alex Lacazette should lead the line having made just one Premier League appearance this term, and that was in a 5-0 hammering at Man City. He did score in the 6-0 rout of West Brom in the last round though and should be partnered by Gabriel Martinelli in Mikel Arteta's attack.
Wholesale changes at the back are expected with Leno, Cedric, Holding, Mari and Tavares likely to deputise for Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel and Tierney respectively. Watch out for the likes of Omari Hutchinson, Charlie Patino and Mika Biereth on the Arsenal bench.
