Arsene Wenger, as suggested by The Hard Tackle, has decided to rotate his squad in the mid-week fixture with a string of key first-team players rested. The likes of Alexis, Ozil, Walcott and others are not even in the 18 with Emiliano Martinez handed a rare start between the posts.

Ashley Maitland-Niles was also handed a start and the teenager will slot in beside Elneny in the holding midfield role.

Lucas Perez will look to continue impressing Wenger, with the Spaniard starting as the lone forward, while there are a host of young and talented players like Macey, Zelalem, Bielik, Sheaf, Bola and Willock all on the bench for the Gunners.

Reading FC, on the other hand, have chosen to feature many of the players who started over the weekend with Ali Al Habsi captaining the side.
