Arsenal are scheduled to face Manchester City on the road in tonight’s League Cup quarter-final.
The Gunners have a poor record against the Cityzens with seven losses and just one win from the previous eight meetings.
However, their solitary triumph came in a Cup competition as they beat the Cityzens in the FA Cup semi-final last term.
Their league form has been horrendous with just five points from the previous 10 games and will be hoping for a change in fortunes.
Bernd Leno is likely to retain his spot between the sticks for tonight’s meeting at the Etihad Stadium.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles has started back-to-back league games and he could drop to the bench for Hector Bellerin. The Spaniard is likely to occupy the right wing-back spot with Bukayo Saka on the opposite flank.
