There is a semblance of stability coming at Arsenal after their poor start and as they host League One side Wimbledon in the third round of the League Cup, they’ll be expected to pick an easy win.
The Gunners have two straight wins and three wins now in their last four matches.
The last two wins have however been labored and they will hope for a comfortable outing here with the North London Derby coming up next.
Defensively, they’ve improved by a lot, and Aaron Ramsdale has a big hand in that, the keeper having managed three clean sheets in three games.
In the last round of this competition, they thrashed West Brom 6-0 and will be glad to play at home again, the win over Norwich having been their third in four games at the Emirates.
In the last 10 League Cup matches, Arsenal have failed to score in just three.
Meanwhile, Wimbledon are coming from a 1-0 home loss to Plymouth Argyle and they are set for a tougher outing at the Emirates, though their run ahead of this game isn’t bad.
Their latest loss was the season in a run of 11 matches, and they have managed six wins.
They failed to score in only one of their last six matches but they have just one clean sheet in that run.
Wimbledon have scored two or more goals in four of their last five matches and four of the five games have produced over 2.5 goals.
Both teams have scored in four of their last five matches, and away from home, Wimbledon have scored in five of their last six.
In the opening two rounds of the League Cup, they have kept clean sheets, with two straight 1-0 wins.
