Arsenal warmed up for this EFL Cup tie with a comfortable victory over Hull City in the Premier League and manager Arsene Wenger, who is expected to make changes from that side revealed that he has no fresh injuries.

“Everyone came out of the Hull game well,” the Frenchman said on

He, however, added that striker Olivier Giroud is still not available, but hopes to have him for the English Premier League battle with Chelsea.

“Giroud is still not available,” Wenger said. “We will see at the end of the week if he can join in [ahead of the Chelsea match].”

He noted that defender Carl Jenkinson and midfielder Aaron Ramsey remain on the sidelines, but said centre-back Gabriel has a chance to play.

“[Ramsey] is still out,” the Gunners boss said. “I don’t think he will be ready for the weekend either.”

He added about Jenkinson: “He is improving, he is not quite back in full training yet.”

Brazilian Gabriel has recovered from an ankle injury that has kept him sideline this season, and he is now in contention to make his first appearance of the campaign.

“He has a chance to play against Forest,” Wenger said about Gabriel.

The likes of Chuba Akpom, Rob Holding, Kieran Gibbs, David Ospina, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Perez could all be involved.

“We will have a team with experience but I will also give a chance to two or three young players. But overall it is basically a first-team squad,” Wenger said on

“The confidence level has been rebuilt and now we have to show that we can maintain our focus and the consistency in our concentration. That is what is at stake.

“This is an interesting cup competition. It gives games to all the members of the squad and when it gets to the later stages it gets passionate, so you have to survive in the first rounds.

“That will not be easy for us, but we want to maintain our winning streak. This is an opportunity to give everyone good competition and also we have a chance to win a trophy, so we want to combine the two.”

Arsenal (squad): Cech, Ospina, Macey, Debuchy, Bellerin, Holding, Koscielny, Mustafi, Gibbs, Monreal, Coquelin, Elneny, Xhaka, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Reine-Adelaide, Sanchez, Walcott, Iwobi, Lucas, Sanogo, Akpom, Giroud.
