Petr Cech is set to start for Arsenal in the club's Capital One Cup clash against Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow evening. 

As reported by the Telegraph, the former Chelsea shot-stopper, who has been in fine form between the sticks for the north London outfit, won't be rested for the trip to Hillsborough. 

Back-up 'keeper David Ospina may well have been handed the starting berth, but the Colombian international is currently out on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

With the duo of Wojciech Szczesny and Emiliano Martinez currently starring out on loan - at Roma and Wolves, respectively - it appears that Wenger has no choice but to start Cech from the off. 

Matt Macey, who has been on the bench for the Gunners for the last three games, doesn't look set to feature despite being held in high regard.

Key man 

There should be no underestimating Cech's importance to the cause. Ultimately, alongside Alexis Sanchez, the veteran is arguably the club's most important player in their pursuit of glory. 

With Cech in goal, the Emirates outfit are an entirely different prospect altogether and really will fancy their chances of enjoying yet another cup run while finally coming to prominence in the Premier League. 

After knocking out Tottenham in the last round of the competition, Wenger will certainly be expecting his side to deliver in Sheffield.
