Arsenal take on Nottingham Forest tomorrow in the EFL Cup, and Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team update ahead of the game.
Olivier Giroud remains sidelined with a toe complaint, meaning recent signing Lucas Perez could get a chance to start up front.
Gabriel ‘has a chance to play’, according to the Frenchman, as he shuffles his defence around. Mathieu Debuchy is back in training and could come in at right back in place of Hector Bellerin, while Kieran Gibbs and Rob Holding are also in line for a start.
However, there’s no Aaron Ramsey for tomorrow night, and the Welshman is not likely to return for the visit of Chelsea on Saturday either as he looks to recover completely from a hamstring strain picked up on the opening day of the season.
It’s expected that youngsters such as The Jeff, Chuba Akpom, Krystian Bielik, Chris Willock and Gedion Zelalem could be part of the squad as they joined in with first team training today.
