Play the kids/2nd choice players

No idea where Blackpool are in whatever league they are in but this should be comforable

Has been in full training for a few days now. Should be regarded for this game.

Yeah he returned to full training earlier this week.

Providing there are no setbacks he should be available for this.

Arsenal full-back Ainsley Maitland-Niles is in contention to play in Wednesday's Carabao Cup fourth-round tie with Blackpool after recovering from a leg fracture.

Right-back Hector Bellerin could miss out with a muscle injury.

Blackpool will be without centre-back Donervon Daniels due to a hamstring problem.

Striker Armand Gnanduillet is suspended following his sending-off in the defeat to Fleetwood on Saturday.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is likely to make a number of changes but defender Laurent Koscielny, who is back in training, may be too short of fitness to return from his Achilles injury.

Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac continue to nurse hamstring injuries and are not expected to be risked.

Emery could also hand a start to goalkeeper Petr Cech following his return from injury.

Arsenal academy graduate Marc Bola is in line to feature against his former club after returning from injury at the weekend for Blackpool.

Oh wow. No Mavropnos, Koscielny, Monreal, Bellerín or Kolasinac either.

Also can't afford to risk Holding and Sokratis who are needed for the Liverpool game on Saturday.

We could try Pleguezuelo who does have experience at professional level.

That's Marc Bola.

I'm referring to Tolaji Bola, also a left back by trade but not related to Marc who recently left for Blackpool.

Bellerin is also injured. We are really lacking the numbers in our defense. As you said we can't really afford risking any more injuries. I hope Emery really saves Holding and Papa for the Liverpool game.

Smith Rowe and Eddie weren't with the U-21s today so I assume they will be involved somehow.

This game is as good as a walkover for us.
