It may just be the Capital One Cup, but it's still a North London derby - Arsenal travel up north to the wilds of Tottenham, to take on Spurs in the third round of the least liked Cup competition in the whole of England.
The big news, of course, is Gabriel's reinstatement to the squad; his lack of suspension means that only Santi Cazorla will be absent via suspension. Francis Coquelin, who was thought to be fit enough to play, is not, nor is Mesut Özil, who is being rested.
As with most early round COC games, this should be an interesting occasion - both sides will be up for it, but both sides may be somewhat...experimental in nature, and I doubt either team will lose sleep if they lose tonight. I'd rather see Arsenal sleep the sleep of victors, though, whatever that is.
