'We must focus and demand the highest standards'

No side in League One has been involved in more goals this season than AFC Wimbledon.

We welcome the Dons to Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening for our Carabao Cup third-round clash, so what does Mikel Arteta expect from the match?

"I hope that we can expect goals from our side, but it's true that [Wimbledon have had] really open games with high scores," our manager told Arsenal Media. 

"They are really direct, physical but at the same time, they have a big goal threat in many situations, so it will be a tough opponent.

"[We must] focus. Focus, demand the highest standards, prepare the same way or even better. 

"Make the players understand that if somebody wants to play and is seeking an opportunity, it's great that you're doing the right things in training and your behaviour is good, but this is the opportunity to show us as well that you deserve to play and make it difficult for us in team selection. 

"Those games are like any other game, an opportunity for anybody to show that he deserves to be in the team."
