The EFL Cup is not usually high on the list of objectives for elite Premier League clubs.
In the past, the likes of Arsenal and their competitors have opted to play their younger squad in the early rounds.
It has always been easier for them to take a risk as the EFL Cup tends to take a backseat to the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
Things are slightly different at Arsenal this time around as they failed to qualify for the Champions League last season, and they have a new manager in charge.
With Unai Emery now at the helm, some fans believe that winning any sort of silverware will give the coach and the team a boost of confidence.
On Thursday, the North London outfit were drawn against Brentford in the third round.
Arsenal will be favourites heading into the clash against the Championship outfit at the Emirates.
After the draw was made on Thursday, groups of supporters posted their thoughts on Reddit.
