After the great 5-2 win yesterday against Everton, Arsenal will have only 48 hours to prepare for their home match in the EFL Cup against Norwich City with high confidence.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Tuesday, October 24 at 7:45PM BST.
Where: Emirates Stadium
Who will play?
With 48 hours to rest only, there is no way to let any player who started against Everton to start the match against Norwich City, except Petr Cech who “May” start in goal. Otherwise, the squad should be similar to the one that played in the Europa Leage.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech (captain)
Defenders: Ron Holding Mohamed Elneny, Mathieu Debuchy
Midfielders: Reiss Nelson,Wilshere,Coquelin,and Ainsley Maitland-Niles
Forward: Walcott,Iwobi,and Giroud
Petr Cech and Matt Macey
With David Ospina out injured and Petr Cech playing three games in 5 days only, Arsene Wenger may not risk his only senior keeper and try to give Matt Macey a chance against a Championship team to gain some playing time in the first team, and not risk Cech, who may need to play in goal for the coming two-three weeks in the league and Europa.
The same squad that played in Serbia will play against, which performed really well against a crucial tough opponent, even though they scored only once, but we expect a wider win today at home. We expect a 3-1 win.
Arsenal won 27 out of 57 matches against Norwich City, which is less than 50% winning rate.
