Arsene Wenger has given a team update ahead of tomorrow night’s EFL Cup game against Reading.
The manager is set to mix it up a bit after the 0-0 draw against Boro at the weekend, and although Aaron Ramsey is back in full training this game has come too soon for him.
However, it looks as if we’ll get a blast of The Jeff, a dollop of Carl Jenkinson, and a smear of Rob Holding amongst others.
“It will be a similar squad to against Nottingham Forest,” he told the official site. “We will have Gabriel, Holding, Jenkinson will be back and will play.
“Jeff Reine-Adelaide will play, otherwise I think Iwobi, Lucas, Oxlade-Chamberlain will also play. Gibbs – who captained the team at Forest – will do it again on Tuesday.”
And on Giroud and Ramsey, he continued, “I think Olivier will be included, but for Aaron it is too early although he is back in full training now.”
So, possible team could be: Martinez, Jenkinson, Holding, Gabriel, Gibbs, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Iwobi, The Jeff, Lucas, Giroud
We’ll find out more tomorrow.
