Arsenal team news

Entering the EFL Cup a round earlier due to their lack of European football, Arsenal are in their fourth round of the competition and facing their third team from a lower division. Arsenal’s route to the quarter-finals started in the second round with a 6-0 thrashing of Championship side West Brom at the Hawthorns, their only away game in the competition so far. Wimbledon were the next to fall at the Emirates before Arsenal beat Premier League side Leeds, making it to this stage having scored 11 goals without conceding. Arsenal go into this game off the back of a three-game winning streak across all competitions but are without Sead Kolasinac, Pablo Mari and Albert Sambi Lokonga, while Takehiro Tomiyasu may not be risked alongside expected changes.

Arsenal predicted XI: Leno; Cedric, Holding, Chambers, Tavares; Elneny, Maintland-Niles; Pepe, Smith Rowe, Nketiah; Balogun.

Sunderland team news

Sunderland have had a fairly difficult run to the quarter-finals, facing one side from their own division and two from the Championship. The campaign started with a narrow 2-1 win over League Two Port Vale and was followed by another slim victory, this time against Championship opposition in Blackpool. Sunderland’s most comfortable win of the competition was against fellow League One side Wigan, and the Black Cats secured their spot in the quarter-finals by beating QPR on penalties. They are currently on a four-game unbeaten run but have the likes of Aiden McGeady, Luke O’Nien and Leon Dajaku out.

Sunderland predicted XI: Hoffmann; Wright, Doyle, Flanagan; Hume, Neil, Winchester, Gooch; Pritchard, Broadhead; Stewart.

Scoreline prediction: Arsenal 3-0 Sunderland
