Leicester City vs Arsenal: Arteta speaks on team selection for Carabao Cup

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has vowed to take the Carabao Cup seriously this season.

The Gunners travel to Leicester City in a third-round fixture on Wednesday night.

Arteta has already won silverware less than one year since he arrived at the club.

First, he beat Chelsea to lift the FA Cup, before defeating Liverpool in the Community Shield.

The Spaniard is however not relenting in his quest for more trophies as they face the Foxes and will name a strong side for the game.

“We are going to take it seriously, that is for sure.

“Obviously with the fixtures we have, the number of games, it is very difficult, but we have to go day by day, let’s see what position we are in to try and put out the strongest possible team to try and win it,” Arteta told a press conference on Tuesday.

Arteta added: “The last few seasons I think this competition for the clubs has raised (in importance), there is only one winner in the Premier League. That leaves a lot of frustrated clubs and now everybody wants a title. You can see in the last few years that teams have used strong line-ups and the types of finals we have seen in recent years.”
