Posted on September 23, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal are set to return to Carabao Cup action tonight as they prepare to go head to head with Leicester City. Many aren’t particularly bothered about whether or not the Gunners go far in the competition, but what they are interested in is seeing the club’s squad getting back to full fitness.

Thanks to Arsenal.com, we’ve got an updated list of players who are attempting to make a return from injury.

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

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).

Arsenal face Leicester in Carabao Cup third round 0

Posted on September 07, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The big focus for English football fans right now is the return of the Premier League, Championship and subsequent lower leagues below that – with most things getting underway this weekend. Alas, while that is certainly viewed as the most important thing of all, there’s also the Carabao Cup to worry about.

The secondary competition is so often pushed to one side and given a bad reputation, and it’s only ever really taken seriously when teams are able to do well in it. This year we can’t picture Mikel Arteta putting too much focus on prioritising the League Cup, but if he does, he’ll be taking note of the fact that the Gunners’ first game will be Leicester City in the third round.

The Premier League is set to return next weekend as the Gunners prepare to make another push for the top four – and potentially even beyond. It’s been a strong start to the season with the Community Shield win, and things are about to get even more interesting.

Fulham

This is the kind of game that should be viewed as a must win, and with Fulham being a newly promoted side that are still trying to work out what their best starting XI looks like, we’re going to assume Arsenal will pick up all three points. It may not be particularly convincing, but it’ll be enough.

Arteta reacts to controversial Leicester draw 0

Arsenal looked set to claim an invaluable three points in the race for the top four last night against Leicester City, but after a disastrous final 15 minutes of the game, they only managed to secure a draw. While the Foxes did come on strong in the second half, it’s safe to say that there were more than a few questionable decisions from the officials.

After the game, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media regarding how the game went down.

The relentless Premier League schedule ensures that we won’t go without football over the course of the next few weeks as we ramp up preparations for the end of the season – and the start of the next. Of course, there’s still a whole lot left that needs to be determined at both the top and bottom end of the table, with the European places being a crucial part of the entertainment.

Arteta looks ahead to huge Leicester clash 0

While fans may still be riding the high of beating Wolves at the weekend, there is simply no rest for the wicked. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta recently took part in a Sunday night press conference in order to look ahead to the game against Leicester City which, once again, could be viewed as the biggest test so far for Arteta as his side continues to try and hunt down a place in either the Champions League or Europa League.

Real, Barcelona and Leicester monitoring Matteo Guendouzi? 0

It has been a season rather loaded with controversies for Matteo Guendouzi. He was called out for a bout of poor behaviour at Arsenal’s training camp in Dubai in the winter, with head coach Mikel Arteta reportedly not impressed, and he put on a show of anger at the end of the Gunners’ defeat away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Five minutes before the break, the Seagulls forward Neal Maupay rather thuggishly bumped into Bernd Leno as the Arsenal goalkeeper caught the ball near the edge of the box. He was probably trying to make the German either drop the ball or step over the line, but the result of the contact was that Leno lost his footing and landed awkwardly, getting injured in the process and having to make way for Emiliano Martinez.

Arsenal urged to keep Tierney amid Leicester links 0

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes the Gunners shouldn’t allow Kieran Tierney to leave the club after only one season.

Arsenal signed Tierney last summer from Celtic for £25 million after pursuing him for several months. The 23-year-old played for the Scottish champions under the command of Brendan Rodgers, now of course, in charge at Leicester. The Foxes have an established left-back of their own in Ben Chilwell, but Chilwell is reportedly a priority target for Chelsea this summer.
