Kick-Off (UK Time): 19:45 – 26/10/2021
Mass rotation is expected for of the Tuesday night League Cup clash with Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United. Bernd Leno is expected to return, displacing Aaron Ramsdale in goal, while the likes of Rob Holding, Cedric, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Eddie Nketiah are all expected to be given the chance to impress from the start.
The main Arsenal injury news ahead of kick off is to Kieran Tierney who missed last week’s league victory, and the Scotsman will surely not be risked on Tuesday. Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be kept in reserve having picked up slight niggles due to fatigue.
