Arsenal’s squad for tomorrow’s Capital One Cup clash against West Bromwich Albion appears to be taking shape with the likes of Nicklas Bendtner and Ju-Young Park (yes really!) both taking part in training today.
So stretched is the Gunners squad that the likes of Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Mathieu Flamini, Per Mertesacker and Jack Wilshere also trained ahead of the game, although it remains to be seen whether the latter is included in the squad after Arsene Wenger remarked on Sunday he needs a rest.
Other first team members who trained (pictures here) include Thomas Vermaelen, Mikel Arteta, Carl Jenkinson, Emiliano Viviano, Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal while Ryo, Serge Gnabry, Kris Olsson, Chuba Akpom, Hector Bellerin, Thomas Eisfeld and Isaac Hayden highlight the youthful options at Arsene Wenger’s disposal.
At a push Arseblog News guesses the starting XI might look something like:
Jenkinson – Mertesacker – Vermaelen – Nacho
Flamini – Arteta
Ryo – Down-and-out-Thor-look-alike – Gnabry
We’ll have to wait and see…
