But Gunners manager Wenger is not willing to follow their line of thought, insisting that there is too much pressure to sacrifice any potential trophy.

“With the pressure that every club is under now, you cannot sacrifice any competition,” Wenger said.

Pep played down the significance of the league cup.

“You know that you could pay the price sometimes for it because if you go further in the League Cup, at some stage you play semi-finals where you are home and away in January, and you have the FA Cup, the Premiership.”

“Sometimes you lose players in these competitions.”s

Arsenal will now lock horns with Norwich City in the last 16 of the EFL Cup and on the other side Man Utd will take on Swansea City and Man City are all geared up to host Wolves.
