Arsenal’s League Cup clash vs Wimbledon confirmed 0

Posted on September 08, 2021 by Harry Kettle

While Arsenal’s 6-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the League Cup was nice to see, it doesn’t mean a whole lot if they don’t go on to have a properly decent run in the competition. If they’re going to do so, they’ll have to tackle an opponent that, on paper, they should be even more likely to defeat in the form of AFC Wimbledon.

The League One mid-table side will obviously see this as a golden opportunity to upset the established order but in truth, Arsenal shouldn’t be seeing this as anything other than a nailed on victory. The game has been confirmed to take place on Wednesday, 22nd September with a 7.45pm kick-off and if Mikel Arteta is still in charge by then, it’ll be the sort of game he’ll be expected to succeed in.

Mikel Arteta is starting to show signs of life as Gunners boss and with the January transfer window now upon us, it’s time to see whether or not Arsenal can really build a squad that wants to fight for this club.

Cup and European competitions have been Arsenal’s salvation so far this season and, in general, they’ve been the saviour of manager Mikel Arteta. Gunners fans will be desperate for that trend to continue on into 2021 and beyond, but before we get there, Arsenal must first try and edge their way past Manchester City in a huge Carabao Cup quarter-final tie tonight.

In what some still believe could be one of his final press conferences as manager, Mikel Arteta took the time to speak with the media prior to the game.

Arsenal were able to overcome Premier League champions Liverpool last night in the Carabao Cup, beating the Reds on penalties to make their way into the quarter-finals of the competition. It was the third time in the last four meetings between the two sides that Arsenal have been able to get the best of Jurgen Klopp’s men and while it doesn’t entirely make up for the league loss on Monday night, it’s definitely a big moment for the club.

Mikel Arteta spoke with the media after the game as Arsenal look ahead to a tough quarter-final tie against three-time defending Carabao Cup champions Manchester City.

While many fans rarely look twice at the Carabao Cup, it’s still a competition that holds some kind of prestige – if only because it’s been going on for so long now. Arsenal will be entering the field of play this week as they prepare to lock horns with Leicester City in the third round, knowing that a win could set them on their way to another Wembley appearance.

There’s some sense of normality behind people moaning about the Carabao Cup, and even if there are some out there who won’t watch, it’ll be an intriguing game between two of the Premier League’s finest.

The Carabao Cup question 0

Posted on September 17, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s been confirmed by the club that Arsenal will officially begin their Carabao Cup journey next Wednesday when they lock horns with fellow Premier League side Leicester City. While some fans are excited to see some fringe players start or play some kind of role, which seems like what is going to happen, others have questioned whether or not the Carabao Cup should even be happening this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re definitely in the camp of believing the Carabao Cup shouldn’t really exist in its current form for the 2020/21 campaign, and we’re not entirely sure why they’ve gone ahead with it (well, we do – money).
