Arsenal are back in action tonight as they take on AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup, with Mikel Arteta facing some lineup decisions.
The Gunners have won twice in a row in the Premier League, beating both Norwich City and Burnley 1-0.
Arteta needs to continue the progress by avoiding a slip-up tonight. League One Wimbledon will be desperate to spring a shock as they make the trip to the Emirates Stadium.
Arteta would still be wise to rotate some of his squad, and we’re expecting changes tonight…
Arsenal predicted lineup
Bernd Leno will surely come into the side in goal.
Aaron Ramsdale has displaced Leno in the Premier League, and the German needs minutes tonight.
Arteta has a first-choice right foot/left foot combination in Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes.
It therefore makes some sense if Rob Holding and Pablo Mari come in to fill those roles tonight.
Nuno Tavares is primed for a start at left back, with Cedric Soares on the right.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles should feature alongside Albert Sambi Lokonga in a midfield two.
Fans are desperate to see teenager Charlie Patino start, but we’re backing Emile Smith Rowe to start as the number 10.
Patino may well come on later, but getting more minutes into Smith Rowe could be the priority.
Gabriel Martinelli can then start on the left, with Nicolas Pepe on left. Alexandre Lacazette, Folarin Balogun and Eddie Nketiah would then fight for the striker role – we’d give the nod to Lacazette.
Arsenal bench v Wimbledon
Ramsdale, Calum Chambers, Sead Kolasinac, Granit Xhaka, Patino, Balogun and Nketiah should feature on the bench tonight.
Arteta has a number of options at his disposal, but giving rests to the likes of White, Gabriel, Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Thomas Partey, Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be paramount.
