Alex Iwobi Poised To Make Second League Cup Appearance Versus Reading Arsene Wenger has strongly hinted that Alex Iwobi will be involved in his Arsenal’s Football League Cup Round of 16 clash against Reading at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

The 20-year-old made his competitive debut for the Gunners in this competition on October 27, 2015, playing 90 minutes of their shock 3-0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday.

“It will be a similar squad to against Nottingham Forest. We will have Gabriel, Holding, Jenkinson will be back and will play, ” Wenger told arsenal.com.

“Jeff Reine-Adelaide will play, otherwise I think Iwobi, Lucas, Oxlade-Chamberlain will also play.

“Gibbs - who captained the team at Forest - will do it again on Tuesday. ”

It would be Iwobi’s 32nd appearance for Arsenal’s first team if he steps out onto the Emirates Stadium turf tomorrow night.
