Arsenal vs Blackpool - Arsenal boss Unai Emery set to ring changes for Blackpool tie

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is likely to make wholesale alterations to his side for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup fourth-round clash with Blackpool.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is in contention after recovering from a leg fracture while Laurent Koscielny is also back in training but may be too short of fitness to make a comeback from his Achilles injury.

If either Nacho Monreal or Sead Kolasinac overcome respective hamstring niggles they are not expected to be risked, while a muscular injury will see Hector Bellerin miss out and Emery must decide whether Bernd Leno or fit-again Petr Cech starts in goal.

Blackpool will be without Donervon Daniels and Armand Gnanduillet at the Emirates Stadium.

Centre-back Daniels sustained a hamstring injury in the warm-up ahead of the 3-2 defeat to Fleetwood over the weekend and will be missing on Wednesday.

Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips will also be without imposing striker Gnanduillet, who was sent off towards the end of Saturday’s match at Highbury.

Arsenal academy graduate Marc Bola is in line to feature against his former club after returning from injury at the weekend.
