Arsenal will be looking to avoid an upset when we take on Nottingham Forest in the third round of the Carabao Cup at the Emirates Stadium this evening.

As expected, Unai Emery has made wholesale changes from the side that played on Sunday with Rob Holding coming in to make his first start of 2019 after recovering from a serious knee injury.

Kieran Tierney makes his debut for Arsenal after overcoming a groin injury while Hector Bellerin is named on the bench after recovering from a knee ligament injury that he suffered back in January.

Mesut Ozil captains the side with Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson is support while Gabriel Martinelli leads the line up front. Joe Willock and Lucas Torreira start in midfield with the likes of Dani Ceballos and Bukayo Saka names on the bench.

These are the teams:

Arsenal

Martinez; Chambers, Mustafi, Holding, Tierney; Willock, Torreira; Nelson, Ozil, Smith Rowe; Martinelli

Subs: Macey, Bellerin, Bola, Burton, Ceballos, Saka, Balogun

Forest

Muric, Cash, Figueiredo, Robinson, Ribeiro, Chema, Silva, Johnson, Carvalho, Lolley, Adomah

Subs: Smith, Milosevic, Grabban, Ameobi, Sow, Gabriel, Mighten
