Arsenal is set to change up their side to face Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup fourth round on Tuesday night.
Tonight, The Gunners visit Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday side that aren’t doing too badly in Skybet Championship. Carlos Carvalhal’s men are currently in ninth place with five wins, five draws and three defeats in their first 13 Championship games.
Sheffield’s last win, over Arsenal, came in 1998 and the manager has openly admitted that his team has 10% chance of beating the Gunners.
There were no household names there but with David Ospina suffering a shoulder injury, there is a slight hope for a young goalie, Matt Mace, to get his first senior cap although it’s more than likely that Petr Cech would be the custodian between the sticks in tonight’s game. There were a couple of senior players that trained as well and would expect them to feature tonight.
The boss has signaled that he’s going to field an under-strength side and he expects his fringe players to stand up and be counted.
The likes of Joel Campbell, Mathieu Flamini and Mathieu Debuchy could all start as well as Theo Walcott in the attack.
Provisional Squad: Cech, Monreal, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Bellerin, Coquelin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Ozil, Sanchez, Walcott, Macey, Gibbs, Giroud, Campbell, Debuchy, Chambers, Gabriel, Flamini.
Jack Wilshere (ankle), Tomas Rosicky (knee), Danny Welbeck (knee), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Mikel Arteta (ankle)
