Looking at Carabao Cup games:
#1 - Arsenal B Team never turned up to play, showboating and win 1-0.
#2 - Arsenal B Team struggled and needed Eddie to rescue us.
#3 - Arsenal B Team struggles against WHU and needed a lucky goal to go through.

Will Arsenal B Team ever going to score more than one goal in domestic cup competition?
We scored freely in Europa Cup but struggled against physical teams in English Leagues.

During this extremely cold wintry months up North (weekend forecast is for an Artic cold front), will Arsenal B Team turns up to play football instead of just showboating and no grits to tuck into physical battles.

All Starting-11 against Chelski will be rested and we are down to bare-bone due to injuries.

Look at our killing January Schedule which forces Wenger to rotate the squad, and hopefully no mor einjured players:

06-Jan Forest vs Arsenal FA Cup #3
08-Jan Chelski vs Arsenal Tin Cup semi 1st leg
13-Jan AFC Bournemouth v Arsenal
20-Jan Arsenal v Crystal Palace
24-Jan Arsenal vs Chelski Tin Cup semi 2nd leg
27-Jan FA Cup Round #4
30-Jan Swansea City v Arsenal
03-Feb Arsenal v Everton

8 games within 28 days!

Arsene Wenger is conscious of this hectic schedule sicne X'mas Weekend and he wil certianly rotate the squad.
I prefer he fields all those yougnsters who are committed to battle it out and give their all, like in Europa Cup.

......Debuchy.......Mertesacker.........Holding

...Nelson.........Willock.....Elneny...........Kolasinac

.........Walcott...........Welbeck..........Iwobi

Surely Iwobi, Walcott and Welbeck can score at least a goal against Forest and not necessary to go into extra time?

Against Chelski in Tin Cup semi 3 days after FA Cup?

Perhaps Koscielny, Monreal and Ramsey recovered from their injuries and ready to play?

.........Walcott...........Lacazette..........Welbeck

Let's hope that he will play Nelson as wing-forward with Debuchy behind him.

Debuchy is a more solid defender than Chambers.
Pity he still wanted to leave Arsenal in January.
