  • Arsenal beat West Brom 6-0 in the previous round of the Carabao Cup.
  • The Gunners have won their last two games.
  • All of Arsenal’s wins this season have been accompanied by clean sheets.

Arsenal can overpower Dons
The pressure has been lifted from Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta’s shoulders somewhat by back-to-back wins in the Premier League, but he still cannot afford any slip-ups against Wimbledon in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup meeting.

The Dons saw a five-game unbeaten run ended by Plymouth at the weekend but that shouldn’t detract from a strong start to the season and they go into this game with no pressure. Wimbledon have been good travellers in these early stages of the season and have four wins from six games in all competitions, drawing once and losing once – and that defeat came at League One leaders Sunderland.

Arteta named a strong starting XI in the previous round, a 6-0 demolition of a weakened West Brom team, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made a surprise start and a few other regulars were in the first XI. The Gunners manager may decide to make a few more changes for a home game against third tier opponents, but it still seems as if he is taking this competition seriously so expect a few big names to be involved from the off.

The Gunners ran riot against the Baggies and could be in line for another big win here. With that in mind, a home win with a -2 handicap is my main bet and a 4-0 win for Arsenal has some appeal in the correct score market. Wimbledon have scored in five of their six away games but as all three of Arsenal’s wins this season have been accompanied by clean sheets I feel that pattern may continue here.

Team News

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka serves the third and final game of his suspension this week, while Mohamed Elneny is dealing with a hamstring problem and Kieran Tierney is unlikely to be risked with cramp.

A raft of changes can be expected from the Gunners this week, starting with Bernd Leno coming back in goal while Rob Holding, Calum Chambers and Nuno Tavares could earn starts in defence.

Gabriel Martinelli and Alexandre Lacazette are in contention to feature in the attack, while 17-year-old Charlie Patino - who has caught the eye for the Under-23s - could also make the squad.

Meanwhile, Wimbledon's three-goal midfielder Jack Rudoni has a "slight possibility" of being fit for the trip to the Emirates, according to Robinson, but Paul Kalambayi is out for at least six weeks with a muscle injury.

Left-back Paul Osew is expected to return to training before Wednesday and should be in contention to make the squad, while Premier League loanees Dapo Mebude and Aaron Pressley will battle for a start up top.

Chelsea loanee Henry Lawrence could shift to the right-hand side of defence if Osew is deemed fit enough to play, which would see Cheye Alexander make way for the 19-year-old.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Chambers, Holding, Mari, Tavares; Lokonga, Maitland-Niles; Pepe, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette

AFC Wimbledon possible starting lineup:
Tzanev; Lawrence, Charles, Heneghan, Osew; Marsh, Woodyard; Chislett, McCormick, Assal; Mebude
