Predicted Arsenal XI to face Nottingham Forest tonight

It’s a break from the norm this evening as Arsenal face a potentially tricky third round EFL Cup tie away at Nottingham Forest following their weekend win over Hull City.

A competition that Arsene Wenger has never won in his Gunners’ tenure, the competition seems to have brought the worst out of the Gunners in years gone by and who could forget that final loss to Birmingham City in 2011?

Losing 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in the fourth round last year, Arsene Wenger was criticised for blooding too many youngsters on that occasion but experimenting in the League Cup is something the Frenchman enjoys doing.

With Arsenal boasting a much larger squad nowadays, a few fringe players are expected to receive their chance this evening but as always in this competition, it’s particularly difficult second guessing managers’ eventual selections.

One of the sub plots of tonight’s fixture at the City Ground is the fact Nicklas Bendtner is primed to play against his former club with the Danish imternational having joined Forest recently.

But before tonight’s game kicks off, This Is Futbol have attempted to guess Arsene Wenger’s chosen starting eleven here.
