Arsenal are looking to continue the momentum they are building when they take on AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night in north London.
The Gunners have bounced back from a shocking start to the season by winning their last two Premier League matches and will want to keep that roll going in the League Cup.
They will obviously be runaway favourites to beat Mark Robinson’s League One side who lost at home to Plymouth Argyle in their last outing, leaving them seventh in the table.
Wimbledon have proved exciting so far this season, though, winning their previous three matches 3-1, 5-3 and 4-3, so we can expect them to have a real go at the Premier League giants.
When is Arsenal vs AFC Wimbledon?
The match kicks off at 7.45pm on Wednesday 22 September at the Emirates.
Is Arsenal vs AFC Wimbledon on TV and is there a live stream?
Sky Sports are showing Manchester United vs West Ham United live on Wednesday night so unfortunately the Arsenal vs AFC Wimbledon game in not live on TV.
The Carabao Cup had been streaming non-televised games involving Premier League teams during last season’s competition, but that is no longer the case.
