Arsenal face Leicester City in the League Cup on Wednesday night, knowing a trip to Lincoln or Liverpool awaits the victor in the next round.
After the opening couple of Premier League fixtures, Arsenal enter the League Cup with a game against Leicester City. As both sides qualified for European competition this season, neither had to feature in the second round last week.
Due to the fixture congestion at the moment, we also already know the fourth round draw. Arsenal or Leicester will play away at either Lincoln City or Liverpool. Probably Liverpool, if we’re being honest.
So it’s certainly a tough start to the competition, but Mikel Arteta is still likely to rotate, with league games against West Ham United and Liverpool either side.
