Francis Coquelin

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Wednesday's Capital One Cup third-round tie against Tottenham Hotspur:

on the team news…

Francis Coquelin will be out and we have no major problems for anybody else. It should be a similar squad.

on Coquelin…

His knee is swollen and he is being assessed but we hope it is just a short-term problem

on Per Mertesacker…

He is available for selection, yes.

on if youngsters could feature…

Alex Iwobi. I want to keep the squad together. We go game by game so I will make changes, for sure. How many? I’ve not decided yet. It will be quite an experienced squad with one or two younger players.
