The Gunners travel to Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

Arsene Wenger was keen to throw his youngsters into first-team training ahead of Arsenal's Capital One Cup trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

The north London side used the same tactic in practice last week, putting the likes of Ismael Bennacer in with the senior players.

And Wenger did it again on Monday afternoon, as 17-year-old Frenchman Bennacer joined a number of others mixing it up with the likes of Theo Walcott, Per Mertesacker, Mathieu Debuchy and more.

Such an inclusive atmosphere is no doubt helping the Gunners as they attempt to mount a title challenge and win another cup competition this season. Wenger may even send out some of his youngsters to face Championship side Wednesday on Tuesday.

The Sheffield outfit are now doing better than earlier this season and knocked Newcastle United out in the last round.

Wednesday beat Rotherham United 2-1 on Friday night, while Arsenal won by the same scoreline at home to Everton during Saturday's late kick-off in the Premier League. Here's a selection of the best photos from Gunners training ahead of their trip to face the Owls:
