The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be hoping Arsene Wenger can steer the club this season to a League Cup final and potential victory, with the French manager missing out on this trophy throughout his many years in charge.
A victory against West Ham on Tuesday will see them progress to the semi-finals for the first time in six years, although getting the win won’t come easy against a rejuvenated Hammers side under David Moyes. Wenger usually gives his youth and fringe players a chance in this competition, which is probably one of the main reasons he’s never added it to his collection.
Despite only playing each other last week, the 0-0 draw won’t be a representation of the upcoming game and our landlord thinks this match will pose a different threat to the Gunners.
A different threat poses different challenges, then, and so different players could be needed.
That said, Wenger simply must not start these 2 Arsenal players against West Ham – agreed?
