Arsene Wenger has revealed he will not reconsider his Carling Cup plans despite Arsenal's lack of silverware in recent seasons.
Wenger's policy of naming a largely experimental team will remain in place for Wednesday's quarter-final meeting with Manchester City despite the Gunners' recent barren run.
The north London club have not lifted a trophy since the 2005 FA Cup Final.
However, that will not lead to the Frenchman to alter his Carling Cup plans, which saw the likes of Fran Merida, Craig Eastmond, Kerrea Gilbert and Lukasz Fabianski all start the fourth round victory over Liverpool in October.
"The League Cup is a competition that is not one of our priorities, but we go to Manchester City to win a game," said the Frenchman.
"We'll play our young players and some of them will play in the Champions League as well because we are already qualified."
