Arsenal vs Wimbledon: Player Who May Be Given A Chance To Impress

For Arsenal, Cup games against smaller teams always provides an Avenue where Academy youngsters are given the opportunity to perform in the first team. Ahead of the EFL cup game against AFC Wimbledon, I feel Charlie Patino should be given an opportunity to play.

After a hard fought victory against Burnley, the gunners will be hoping to extend their winning streak in the game against 7th place league one team, AFC Wimbledon. Granit Xhaka will be absent for that game, as he is still serving his match ban, while Elneny is recovering from injury. Thomas may likely miss the game after coming off last match. Arteta is now left with Lokonga and Maitland-Niles to choose from. This is where Charlie should come in.

The 17-year-old kid started playing football from an early age. He played for St Albans before moving to Luton Town. At age 11, Arsenal were able to spot his talent, and they captured him.

The left-footed loves to play as a number 8 or as a deep lying playmaker. He has been receiving a lot of praises for his decent performances with the U-23 team. He is often compared to Jack Wilshere, as they have similar play pattern.

Wimbledon should be an easy ride for the gunners, and I think Charlie maybe given a chance.
