    Annoyingly I think Arteta will take this too seriously

    They won't even let him train with the 1st team, I doubt they will play him sadly. Thing is, it'd be a nice incentive to get him to sign but they're quite happy to let him go it seems.

    Think we should just experiment here with 433 instead of usual 343

    Cedric - Saliba - Luiz (for match fitness) - Kolasinac/AMN
    Willock - Elneny - Saka
    Pepe - Nketiah - Nelson

    Agree with others but I would rest Saka and play Özil instead. Cant basically pay him high wages and dont play. Hope Arteta make him start the meaningless cup games at least

    Cedric - Saliba - Luiz - Kolasianc - AMN/Saka
    Willock/Guendouzi - Elneny
    Pepe - Nketiah - Nelson

    Özil, Guendouzi on the bench, if we cant sell them might aswell get a use out of them.

    ----------El Nenny----Willock

    Have Holding, AMN, Saka, Willian and Auba on the bench

    One of our better chances at silverware this season. People can turn their noses up at it but until we're challenging for the Premier League / Champions League I'll take any silverware on offer.

    Sure it's a tough draw we've got and fixtures haven't been kind to us.
    You don't have to start a load of first eleven players, but you should treat the competition with respect.

    One of Wenger's underappreciated qualities was his willingness to play complete reserve teams in games like this, you'd be watching academy players you've never seen before; we'd be seeing the likes of Azeez and George Lewis.

    Well, I've seen enough from Arteta's managerial spell here to say that he's not going to treat any game in any competition as a joke or a throwaway.

    We can't afford to be in this competition, pointless risk. Go full 'reserves', let Ozils fans have a look at him.

    Yeah how likely is an Özil run out?

    It’d be handy to play him but it looks like he’s being frozen out altogether as Arteta was playing him pre-lockdown.

    Disgrace that this competition is on this season.

    Anyway, no chance we're winning this.

    If Guendouzi doesn’t make the 18 surely he has to go?
