​Arsenal manager Arteta aiming to field strong team against AFC Wimbledon

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta suggests he will play a strong team against AFC Wimbledon in the League Cup on Wednesday.

The Gunners are taking on the lower league side as they aim to build on their two successive Premier League wins in recent weeks.

Arteta, who may rotate his side to give a chance to several fringe players, suggested he would play a fairly strong team for the game.

He told reporters: "I hope that I can put out the strongest team I can.

"That means that the players have performed really well and then give a really strong performance and this is what we want to do."

On giving players a chance who have not featured this term, he added: Absolutely and you have to praise that for sure.

"Let's see who's available, how they recover and what is the best way to approach the game."
