    Qualifying for European cup competition means that Arsenal have advanced to the third round of the league cup (COC) automatically. Arsenal face Coventry City at The Grove tomorrow. The Sky Blues have lost five games in a row dropping them to 23rd in League One. Traditionally Wenger likes to trot-out the young lads in games such as these.

    Reading up 2-nil, looks like our League Cup campaign is at an end.

    After Koscielny scores an own goal, Martinez can't handle a shot from outside the box and it's 3-nil. Getting ugly out there.

    Arsenal have drawn Bradford City and will visit Valley Parade on the 11th of December.

    Bradford won the FA Cup in 1911 and were Division-1 runners-up in 1998-1999. They finished 17th in the Premiership the next season and stayed up but finished 20th in 2000-01 and were relegated.

    Arsenal expected to field an experienced side against Bradford today in an effort to beat them in regular time and get some rest before Monday's PL game.

    Giroud, Walcott, Diaby, Santos, and Koscielny ruled out. Yennaris and Miquel also out but might not have featured anyway. Don Vito Mannone has returned.
