Predicting Arsenal's XI for their Capital One Cup clash v Coventry

Arsenal have named their 18-man squad for their League Cup clash tonight... Who is in it...

Arsenal have confirmed their 18-man squad for tonight's game, with as expected, a raft of youngsters and fringe players included.

Here are the full 18: Martinez, Shea; Yennaris, Santos, Miquel, Bellerin, Squillaci, Djourou; Coquelin, Frimpong, Gnabry, Eisfeld, Angha, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Chamakh, Arshavin, Giroud.

No place for Jack Wilshere, but a return for Emmanuel Frimpong after several months out injured. So how will they line-up? Will there be a mix of experience and youth, or will the more established players sit on the bench and come on late in the game? 

Predicting how Wenger will set his stall out is not an easy task, and only Arsene knows of course, but that doesn't stop us trying to second guess him. 

He will want to respect Coventry and put out a fair mix, so here is our predicted XI.


            Yennaris                     Djourou                   Miquel                  Santos

                                        Frimpong                   Coquelin


                                     Walcott                          Arshavin


With Oxlade-Chamberlain, Bellerin, and Gnabry to all come off the bench in the second half.

Let us know your predicted XI...
