Stadium  Kenilworth Road
Referee   Samuel Barrott (England)
Goal Scorer:

Luton Town
Rob Edwards will rue his luck with injuries as he lost key performer Tom Lockyer to an injury against Brentford. Luton Town also lost another defender, Teden Mengi, to a knee issue, while Alfie Doughty is also a doubt after missing the weekend with a hip issue.
Those absentees could lead to Edwards changing his system against Arsenal and opting for a back four as opposed to having three centre-backs. The trio joined a long list of absentees in the treatment room, including Arsenal loanee Albert Sambi Lokonga, who would have been ineligible to play for Luton anyway.

Gabriel Osho and Amari’i Bell are likely to settle in the centre-back roles on Tuesday, with support from Issa Kabore at right back and Ryan Giles, who will return to the lineup at left back. In midfield, Edwards will retain the partnership of Ross Barkley and Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu.

Up front, Edwards will likely make one alteration from the Brentford lineup, as Chiedozie Ogbene could drop down to the bench in favour of Andros Townsend, who will take a position on the right instead. Tahith Chong will shift to the left, with Brown operating in the No.10 role behind central striker Carlton Morris.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Kaminski; Kabore, Osho, Bell, Giles; Mpanzu, Barkley; Townsend, Brown, Chong; Morris

The Gunners will come to Kenilworth Road hoping to carry the same set of players from the weekend’s game against Wolves. The only worry around now is the fitness of Takehiro Tomiyasu, who went down holding his calf. Mikel Arteta managed to downplay the incident while hinting it could have been fatigue, but the Japanese defender will have an assessment before Tuesday’s game.

In all probability, Arteta will not risk Tomiyasu as he has Ben White fit and available following a period on the sidelines. The English defender had returned to fitness a while back, but the Japanese defender’s form had kept him on the bench for the last few games in all competitions.

Other than that, Arteta might make a few alterations and rotate his side in a few areas. For instance, Kai Havertz might come in for Leandro Trossard in midfield, while the manager could also ponder resting Gabriel Jesus, with Eddie Nketiah ready to start if needed.

With the Brazilian’s form, there’s no reason for him to sit down on the bench, but Arteta will have the crunch fixture list on his mind. Even at the back, he could rest Oleksandr Zinchenko or one of his centre-backs in favour of Jakub Kiwior.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Raya; Ben White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Odegaard, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli
Prediction: Luton Town 0-2 Arsenal
