Their last win against Arsenal dates all the way back to 1970 and given the major difference in talent as well as the home field advantage for Arsenal, we would expect the Gunners to make quick work of the visitors even with their second team.

Whether it is a permanent switch or if Leno will be back on Saturday when Liverpool visit north London in the Premier League remains to be seen.

The Frenchman was renowned for playing youth in the competition, and despite getting to the final, was never able to lift the trophy. "And the red card is one circumstance in the game".


However, the League One outfit were reduced to 10-men themselves after O'Connor was shown a straight red card for a reckless foul on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 84th minute and Arsenal held on to secure the 2-1 win.

"We have spoken. It is very important to control, but I don't think he lost control".

"I'm here at Wembley where I played many games and have good memories, and of course you miss that".


"We are looking for the confidence in each goalkeeper".

But with Emery expected to rotate his team for the visit of Blackpool, Cech will have the opportunity to play.

Petr Cech made his return after a month out with a hamstring injury, but he endured a hard day and nearly gifted Blackpool a goal when he was robbed in his own penalty area, only to be bailed out by the offside flag when Nathan Delfouneso found the net. "We will continue with our ideas".


According to French radio station RMC, Arsenal and Liverpool have also been closely following his performances for Watford with a view to possibly making a move for him.
