Arsenal Vs AFC Wimbledon: Prediction And Team News

Arsenal will face one of the capital’s sides as AFC Wimbledon comes to the Emirates in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Ahead of Sunday’s north London derby against Tottenham, Wednesday night’s fixture will be Arsenal’s first against AFC Wimbledon.

Mikel Arteta’s men have calmed the ship with successive 1-0 Premier League wins, against Norwich and Burnley, after starting the new campaign with three defeats in a row.

AFC Wimbledon has taken care of Northampton Town and Charlton to reach this stage, while Arsenal hammered a youthful West Brom side 6-0 in the last round.
