Bradford vs Arsenal | Starting XI

Arsenal travel to Bradford for their Capital One Cup Quarter Final

There have been many reports this week claiming the Arsenal stars don’t wish to be rested for this crucial quarter final match. Only two steps away from the final the Arsenal ‘seniors’ can smell a trophy.

The Team

Arsene Wenger has thrown the blood the youth card card out the window for this clash. He is taking Bradford and the Capital One Cup very seriously. Most of the 11 that started at the weekend reclaim their position in the side. Only Giroud and Arteta miss out on this one.

Wenger has surprised many with most expecting rests for Sagna, Wilshere and Cazorla.

Podolski will make another appearance leading the line with Aaron Ramsey starting in the right forward position. A role he has happily played multiple times already this season – with varying results.

A good performance from the team is crucial tonight, many fans, including myself, will like to see this Arsenal team continue their rehab with a good win.
