Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal will entertain Doncaster Rovers at the Emirates in the third round of the League Cup on Wednesday night.
Lacazette didn’t train today as he was given the day off along with a number of other first team regulars so we should see Giroud come in up front. Young striker Akpom could be named among the subs.
Ozil won’t be risked due to a minor knee injury while Welbeck has been cruelly ruled out for a month with a groin injury so Walcott should get a rare start in attack. Let’s hope he makes the most of it as he’s been woeful so far this season.
Here is how I think Arsene Wenger would lineup his team.
Defence: Chambers, Mertesacker, Holding
Midfield: Nelson, Wilshere, Elneny, Maitland-Niles
Attack: Walcott, Sanchez, Giroud
