The former Gunners stopper is of the belief that Wenger should select a mix of first-team and fringe players for the match at White Hart Lane.
He says that Wenger needs to make sure that he gets his team choice correct, otherwise it could be a long night for his old club against their North London rivals.
"The result depends what sort of team he puts out and what team Tottenham put out," he said. "The right thing would be a mix of experienced players and some younger players.
"I will take any win even if it's 10-9. Harry Kane can score a hat-trick as long as we score four! It doesn't matter how you play. It's all about winning."
Arsenal have generally used the Capital One Cup as a competition to give their younger players a chance to shine in a competitive environment.
Given that Tottenham are the opponents, though, in midweek, with the added weight of derby tensions to take into account, Wenger may feel that he needs to put out a strong team, with the pressure building.
Doing so could be difficult, though, as Mauricio Pochettino's men head into the contest on the back of three consecutive victories, and are unbeaten since the opening day of the season.
