Arsenal have been looking to turn their fortunes around with a substantial result in the next matchup, which is going to be the midweek clash between them and the League One club Doncaster Rovers in the League Cup third round. The Gunners will be looking to make amends for their mistakes so far this season and will look to get themselves a much-needed victory in the League Cup.
As a matter of fact, the North Londoners have never won the coveted trophy in English football so far in their history. They have made it to the final of the competition twice before, only to find disappointment, ending up on the losing side on both the occasions. However, they will be looking to turn their fortunes around and make it all the way to the winners’ podium this time in one of the most prestigious tournaments in England.
The three times Premier League champions will be looking to rest a number of their first team players and will be more inclined to go into the contest against Doncaster Rovers with a fairly young side.
They will also look to play the likes of the experienced German defender Per Mertesacker in the heart of their backline, pairing him with youngsters Callum Chambers and Rob Holding. They, however, might stick to the 3-4-3 formation that they have been using since the start of the season in the Premier League this time around.
Jack Wilshere might be starting in this match in the midfield along with Mohamed Elneny, who might pair up with youngsters Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who plays as a right winger and Reiss Nelson, who might start on the left wing to give solidarity to the side in the midfield. It will be a good opportunity for all four to make a mark on the side for the North London club and get them a much-deserved win from the next contest.
Arsenal will be opting to make a change in their attack with French striker Olivier Giroud set to spearhead it against Doncaster, duly supported by the attackers Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi. It will be a good opportunity for them to make a mark in a rare first-team appearance, as all of them will try to make a solid impression by starting the League Cup campaign for the North London club with a memorable win.
