Arsenal have make several changes for tonight’s visit of Sunderland in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun both start for the Gunners, in what looks an exciting lineup.

Bernd Leno, who has had a groin issue, starts in goal for Mikel Arteta’s side and there is a much-changed defence in front of him

Pablo Mari is out with Covid-19, with Ben White picked alongside Rob Holding. Cedric Soares and Nuno Tavares are starting as the full full-backs

In midfield, Albert Sambi Lokonga will miss out as he also has Covid, which means Mohamed Elneny plays, and Martin Odegaard starts in what looks to be a deeper role.

In attack, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is still unlikely to return and as such Nketiah gets rare along with Balogun.

Behind them, Nicolas Pepe comes in while Emile Smith Rowe starts after a run of successful cameos off the bench.

Arsenal XI: Leno, Cedric, White, Holding, Tavares, Elneny, Odegaard, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Nketiah, Balogun

Subs: Ramsdale, Tierney, Gabriel, Partey, Xhaka, Patino, Saka, Martinelli, Lacazette

Tuesday 7.45pm GMT, Sky Sports

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Referee: Simon Hooper

Arsenal squad from: Leno, Ramsdale, Okonkwo; Cedric, Chambers, Gabriel, Holding, Tavares, Tierney, Tomiyasu, White; Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Odegaard, Partey, Saka, Smith Rowe, Xhaka; Aubameyang, Balogun, Lacazette, Martinelli, Nketiah and Pepe.
