Bellerin, Akpom, Ajayi, Hayden in squad

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Tuesday night's Capital One Cup game against Southampton:

on the young players who could feature...On Tuesday night you might see Hector Bellerin, Francis Coquelin and Isaac Hayden. In the squad we have Chuba Akpom and Semi Ajayi as well. These are the players that are the closest.

on Chuba Akpom...I'm happy that he has developed as a goalscorer, because when he was a younger kid, his problem was finishing. That has gone now. He's a very good finisher and he has now to learn the tactical side of his game. Then he will be ready, because he is a huge talent.

on Isaac Hayden…He's a ball winner, he's a good central defender and a good central midfielder. Technically he was working on his game a bit, but now he is ready for that level.

on Nacho Monreal…He is not far, but he is not ready yet.

on Yaya Sanogo…He is similar, he will be back after the international break.on Walcott and Gnabry…Theo is doing very well, and Gnabry is doing very well too. They should be available after the international break for full training.
