Arsene Wenger has the opportunity to win his first ever Carabao Cup in England when Arsenal face Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.
Wenger’s trophy haul includes two Premier Leagues and seven FA Cups, yet it is the League Cup which has proved difficult to crack over the years, with final defeats to Chelsea in 2008 and Birmingham three years later.
The Gunners are currently in sixth position, with their top-four hopes looking slim as it stands and a trophy success before the end of the season could prove just the tonic to kick-start Arsenal’s campaign.
Arsenal had to overcome Chelsea in a tight semi-final clash while City narrowly beat Bristol City over an entertaining two-legged affair.
Aaron Ramsey is expected to be available for selection on Sunday and Wenger will assess how the Wales midfielder performs in training over the coming days.
Alexandre Lacazette is sidelined with a knee injury, although his return has been shortened to “four weeks from now, maybe three and a half weeks” according to Wenger.
“We’ll see how Ramsey’s evolution goes now from today until Sunday,” Wenger told Arsenal.com
“I don’t rule him out yet, it depends on how well he can improve with the intensity of training until Sunday.
“Ideally, you want to have the choice but our job is about adaptation and very rarely in your life are you in an ideal situation where you have the luxury of choosing from all the players in your squad. We will adapt. Ideally, I would like him to be available but we’ll see.”
