Arsenal will be pushing to maintain their momentum in Carabao Cup action tonight as Mikel Arteta’s side play host to AFC Wimbledon.

Arsenal have showed their steel to scrap out back-to-back Premier League wins in the last fortnight as the pressure begins to ease on Mikel Arteta.

But with a big crowd expected at the Emirates, Arteta will roll a strong side against League One outfit AFC Wimbledon.

The Arsenal manager was under pressure after three successive losses, though his sides form has quickly improved after winning their previous two matches.

Nuno Tavares is expected to replace Kieran Tierney at left back with Rob Holding also coming into the back line.

And the changes do not end there for Arsenal tonight.

Albert Lokonga and Ainsley Maitland-Niles came off the bench in last weekend’s win over Burnley and the pair could start tonight.
