Arsenal will be fighting for a place in the semi-final of the League Cup on Wednesday when they welcome fierce local rivals Tottenham Hotspur to the Emirates stadium.
The Gunners reached the final of this competition last season, where they were beaten by a very dominant Manchester City side at Wembley.
Less than a year after that loss, Arsenal are in another good position to win the League Cup with Tottenham Hotspur looking to deny them that opportunity.
The two sides faced each other only a couple of weeks ago in a much-anticipated first north London derby of the season.
Despite going into the half time break trailing 2-1, a brilliant comeback in the second half saw the Gunners secure a memorable 4-2 win which saw new signing Lucas Torreira score while Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang grabbed a double.
Arsenal will be hoping for a repeat of that show on Wednesday and here is the line-up we are expecting from Unai Emery….
Maitland – Sokratis – Mustafi – Monreal
Ramsey – Torreira – Xhaka
Ozil – Lacazette – Aubameyang
