In the second round of the Carabao Cup Leeds were able to dispatch Crew Alexandra with ease although they struggled against Fulham during their third-round clash after finishing goalless in 90minutes and had to rely on penalty shootouts winning the spot kick contest narrowly.
Leeds found it difficult to break down through a Wolves side in the weekend managing to get a draw at the end.They will have to come down to the Emirates with all guns blazing if they wish for a positive result since Arsenal are in good form at the moment while Leeds are struggling.
Mikel Arteta could change his all entire team in all probability to give his fringe players to get chance to impress.From the Aston Villa victory probably Albert Lokonga could keep his place alongside Nuno Tavares and the rest could be changed for this cup tie.
Alternatively Lokonga's position would depend on the style formation Arteta Would decide to use.If he is to play double midfield pivot,then Maitland-Niles and Elneny could get the chance to start in the middle.
Taraves who had a terrific full debut on Friday will likely retain his place at left-back despite some level of competition from Kolasinac,Benard Leno will also start in goal while there could be an entire overhaul of the backline.Rob Holding and Pablo Mari could start in central defence while Cedric Soares should be selected ahead of Chambers at right-back.
