Arsène Wenger will take a strong squad across North London for tomorrow’s Carling Cup tie with Tottenham tomorrow evening. The Frenchman has included just three Reserve team players – backing away from his usual youth based approach.
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Henri Lansbury and Craig Eastmond have all been included, while Benik Afobe and Chuks Aneke are on the stand by list, should there be any last minute injuries. Wojciech Szczęsny, contrary to reports in the English media, will not play. Wenger has instead opted for Wojciech’s fellow countryman Łukasz Fabiański.
