Official Team News: Arsenal Starting XI vs Bradford

Arsenal.com have revealed the Arsenal starting XI and substitutes that will face Bradford in the Capital One Cup in just under an hour.

It turns out that the team is much stronger than expected. Bacary Sagna has passed a late fitness test, Kieran Gibbs keeps his place in the team (Jernade Meade doesn’t even make the bench), and Santi Cazorla starts. Mikel Arteta is on the bench. There is no sign of Thomas Eisfeld or Serge Gnabry – or any young guns for that matter.

Substitutes: Mannone, Jenkinson, Squillaci, Rosicky, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh.

    Well if the fans whine and whine enough – eventually the manager will play a good enough team. So now, as long as we win – no one can be the slightest bit upset.
