Arsenal make the trip to Bradford City in the quarter-final of the League Cup, with manager Arsene Wenger expected to mix youth and experience at Valley Parade.

Wojciech Szczeesny will keep his place between the sticks, despite the return of Vito Mannone to the Gunners squad.

In defence, Carl Jenkinson will expect to replace Bacary Sagna after he picked up a knock against West Brom, with Per Mertesacker and Thomas Vermaelen providing the experience in the centre. Jernade Meade will hope for another senior Arsenal chance at left back.

In midfield, Abou Diaby is the only senior casualty through injury, whilst Nico Yennaris is also out. Tomas Rosicky and Aaron Ramsey are both likely to get the nod for the Gunners, with Francis Coquelin also coming into the midfield three.

Wenger has confirmed that Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are both out of action for the Emirates Stadum outfit, meaning Marouane Chamakh will lead the line.

On the flanks, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho are expected to start, with youngsters coming off the bench to potentially make an impact if needed late on for Arsenal.

Arsenal predicted line-up v Bradford City:

Wojciech Szczesny; Carl Jenkinson, Per Mertesacker, Thomas Vermaelen, Jernade Meade; Tomas Rosicky, Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey; Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Marouane Chamakh, Gervinho.
