Coaches of both teams from London, Wenger and Mourinho, will make some rotations for tonight less important match in League Cup.
Wenger will probably rest more players than Mourinho, because they have three very important matches in the next period. First, they will face Liverpool in Premier League, then they will play away against Dormund in Champions League and finally big derby against Manchester Utd.
Arsenal have too much injured players (Yaya Sanogo, Vassiriki Abou Diaby, Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta) which didn’t play this season. Despite that fact Arsenal play fantastic this season. When they brought Ozil, the whole team exploded, but he will not play today.
Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 three days ago and showed very good performance. Fernando Torres, who scored and assisted on that match will be rested and on his position will be Etto. Ramires and Terry could also drop to the bench, so Willian and Mikel should start. One of the best player from the last season, Juan Mata, who didn’t play too much this season (!?) will probably be in the first eleven.
Wenger have a series of hard matches and probably will try to avoid extra-time in order to have a fresh players for upcoming matches, so this could be a great chance for Chelsea to go through in the next round, but I will “cover it” with Asian Handicap.
Arsenal – Chelsea Betting Tip: Ah (0) 2 @ 1.65
