Arsenal will be looking to turn things around after their back to back defeats in Champions League and Premier League while Spurs will be buzzing after recording three consecutive wins in past couple of weeks. So contrasting form of both teams sets up this league cup tie nicely and you can tune in here on Wednesady night for the live coverage and match highlights.
Capital One Cup 3rd Round Match Preview: Arsenal taste defeat on the last two visits at White Hart Lane and derby influenced three red cards in last two games. Arsene Wenger is likely pick a second string side to have a go in the league cup which he don’t really rate as seen in the past few seasons. So we can safely assume quite a changed side in the league cup game against Spurs in midweek. Arsenal will be without Rosicky, Welbeck and Jack Wilshere through different injuries
Spurs on the other hand have been very successful in this competition in last few years and they were beaten by Chelsea last year in the final. However Mauricio Pochettino has a dilemma to what starting lineup to pick as most of the regulars played three games in just over a week. Harry Kane and new signing Heung-Min Son are expected to be rested which means Clinton N’Jie, Andros Townsend and Érik Lamela to start in attacking roles. While not so regular players like Ben Davies Thomas Carrol, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose might start.
Here is how I think both teams will lineup for the Wednesday, 23rd september clash at White hart Lane. The final lineups will be announced couple of hours ahead of the kickoff.
Match Predictions: Alot depends on the lineups of course and which manager will take the cup seriously. Since its a derby game and Arsenal are coming into this game on the back of 2 defeats I guess Arsene Wenger will have to take the cup seriously and pick some strong eleven. I am going with an Arsenal win in this one just because I can’t see Wenger losing three games in a row which will mount massive pressure on him.
