Reading vs. Arsenal: Capital One Cup Gamethread

It's spelled Gnabry, people. - Richard Heathcote

Arsenal head up to the Madjeski to take on Reading in the Capital One Cup, so we figured we'd put up a game thread.

Reading vs. Arsenal
Madejski Stadium, Reading, Berkshire, Where the Poppies Grow
Kickoff: Tuesday, October 30, 3:45 PM EDT
Form: Reading LDDLD | Arsenal WWLLW
TV: beIN Sport

So here we are, another year, another League Cup sponsor. It's no milk, it's no Rumbelows, and it's no Coca-Cola, but it is a shiny tin pot to play for, so that's a thing. If you're planning on watching, don't forget, England has already fallen back, so the normal five hour time difference is now six. I think I got that right. Anyway, the game's on an hour later than you're used to, but now you know so you have no excuse.

Lineups will be posted as they're made available (I'm writing this the night before and won't be around during the game, and I'm not psychic), but the team will look dramatically different from the weekend.

The usual rules apply for this here thread - please do not talk about or link to illegal streams, be excellent to each other, etc.

Arsenal: Martinez; Jenkinson, Koscielny, Djourou, Miquel; Frimpong, Coquelin; Walcott, Arshavin, Gnabry; Chamakh
Subs: Shea, Bellerin, Squillaci, Meade, Eisfeld, Yennaris, Giroud,
