The date for Arsenal’s fourth round Carabao Cup game against Norwich has been confirmed.
The Gunners will host the League One side on Tuesday October 24th with a kick-off time of 7.45 (this may change if the tie is selected for television coverage).
It comes just two days after an away trip to Everton on October 22nd, which in turn comes just three days after a trip to face Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League.
The fixture congestion will ensure that Arsene Wenger will rotate his squad, essentially fielding two different teams for the Premier League and the cup competitions.
Arsenal face a similar situation this week with a game tonight against West Brom, a trip to Belarus to meet Bate Borisov on Thursday, before a midday kickoff on Sunday in the Premier League when we host Brighton.
It’s certainly going to be a test of squad depth.
