Arsene Wenger looks set to make significant changes to his usual starting XI for the Carabao Cup clash with Doncaster this evening.
The Gunners boast a particularly vast squad this season and their gaffer will be eager to give minutes on the pitch to as many players as possible, not only to rest his key stars but also to ensure those lower down the pecking order have some match-sharpness for when they’re called upon in other competitions.
It’s also likely Arsenal fans will see a few youngsters get a runout tonight against League One opposition. It represents Wenger’s best chance to do so until the FA Cup comes around and the French boss is known for using the League Cup to blood in young talents.
With that in mind, we asked Arsenal fans earlier today whether teenage prospect Reiss Nelson should start tonight and according to our poll, a whopping 97% of Gunners supporters think he should.
The London-born winger is yet to make a start for his club at senior level but has already featured twice as a substitute this season and largely impressed against decent opposition in Chelsea and FC Koln.
