The best Arsenal players in the EFL Cup this season.
Arsenal advanced to the Carabao Cup semi-finals, and given their current form, they have a good chance of winning it. The EFL Cup has mostly been won by City in recent seasons, but the Gunners might be the team to finally take it away from them.
The Editorial team took a look at the Arsenal players who have done well in the competition so far and how their individual efforts have aided the squad.
With his hat trick, Nketiah joined Marcus Forss of Brentford as one of the competition’s top scorer. He hasn’t made much of an impact in the league, but as a young striker still learning the ropes, his EFL Cup experience could come in handy in the not-too-distant future.
The Gabonese international has just lost his captaincy and has missed Arsenal’s previous games owing to a disciplinary breach, according to Mikel Arteta. But he’s also been one of the competition’s most significant players, and his goals have helped Arteta’s team advance to the latter stages.
The Arsenal fullback is a periphery player who has played a significant role in the club’s Carabao Cup campaign. He has not done enough to earn a regular starting spot in the league’s roster, but he is rapidly improving, and if his current form continues, he could be in contention to start on a regular basis.
Pepe’s Arsenal career has been marred by misfortune. He was one of the most prolific goal scorers in the French league, but he has struggled to adjust to the Premier League. However, he has done exceptionally well in the EFL Cup, where he is one of the leading assist providers in the competition.
