Arsenal kick off their Carabao Cup campaign with a match against Championship side Nottingham Forest at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Unai Emery’s side will be hoping for a more successful League Cup campaign following the disappointment of crashing out to Tottenham in the quarter-finals last season. The Gunners have only won the competition twice throughout their entire history, the last time being all the way back in 1993.
Nottingham Forest have enjoyed a successful run in the competition so far, beating League One side Fleetwood Town 1-0 in the first round before thrashing fierce rivals Derby 3-0 in the following round. Forest have actually won the League Cup more times than Arsenal, with four titles to their name, although the last of these came in 1990.
Alexandre Lacazette is still out with an ankle problem and will be absent until October. Kieran Tierney, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Hector Bellerin all played for Arsenal’s Under-23s last Friday and are back in full training,
but Tuesday’s game could come too soon fitness wise.Rob Holding is close to a return to the first-team and could make an appearance, with Arsenal revealing he is available for selection. Ainsley Maitland-Niles is suspended after getting sent off against Aston Villa.
Nottingham Forest are currently undergoing something of an injury crisis, with Yohan Benalouane, Michael Hefele, Tendayi Darikwa, Carl Jenkinson, Ryan Yates and Rafa Mir all ruled out of Tuesday’s clash
